Anonymous Tribute + Guru Biz Insight
About a year ago I happened to have found your Guru Ratings page, and it was
really helpful for me. Thank you for putting up your great site, it can
definitely save a lot of people from wasting a lot of energy!
Before I found your site, I was searching for a living master, a human being
pumping out loving vibrations (phi) from his heart, which I wanted my heart to
resonate with. I wanted to stop thinking about everything, so that I could start
loving everything. I already understood that if I found such a living master, I
was simply going to sit near him and allow all ideas to be forgotten, to allow
the mental ego to cease to exist, so that my heart would feel the loving
vibrations which the living master silently pumps out from his heart, and my
heart would begin resonating with these vibrations, and soon my heart would be
pumping out these loving vibrations by itself, naturally. Finally, I would
lovingly thank the guru and walk away, since at that point I would be a living
That was my big mental ideal. That was my trip. But then I began to read about
all the masters on your site. Then, I realized every guru is just another
Selfish Human Being. :) This fact is not bad, not at all, it's simply true:
every living being in this universe does what it thinks is best for itself.
That's when I became Self-Realized, which means I Realized... I am Me!
This Body is Number One! I am Selfish! Yayyyy!
Now, if you are still here, I will let you in on a little secret Sarlo...
Ramana knew it, Osho knew it, even Neem Karoli Baba knew it...
This is the secret which all real Gurus understand and practice:
The GOAL is to enjoy sitting around and eating free food without doing any work.
To achieve the GOAL you give Deep Answers to busybodies, and they will support
your Laziness. ( ! )
Wow. Well Sarlo, I have shared this secret with you, without asking for anything
in return. You may very well be the last person to ever receive such totally
True free advice from Me. :)
Anyway, as soon as it gets a little warmer outside, I am going to begin sitting
in the park on a carpet, to achieve the goal, here in Tokyo. When busybodies
come to watch me manifesting Laziness, I may resort to giving out Deep Answers
occasionally, but I'm going to see if maybe the goal can be achieved using total
silence. Even more Silence than Ramana used. We'll see. One thing is for sure, I
definitely will be wearing earplugs.
