A RECEIVER’S VOICE: Pranavadipa Vol. 12 – Testimony
Reading Sananda’s testimony about the Guru makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. The most mysterious questions of life can only be truly answered when the mind is prepared to receive those answers, and when the person who can demonstrate that they possess the true answer arrives. Who is that person, and how shall I know that they are truly qualified? Why should I be concerned with the role of the Guru, and whether I can find my own Guru in this life? Here we can find the answers: how the Guru guides the seeker, how the seeker recognizes the true Guru and what the qualifications of a true Guru actually are. You may be surprised!
The more I contemplate these ideas, the more deeply they reach me. How long must I have been searching, in order to find such precious treasure? To read these words that explain so plainly, so succinctly, without any attempt at mystification or grandiose language, the profound simplicity and tremendous power of the True Guru‘s light, and the way he can focus that light onto the seeker at the perfect intensity to burn away the unnecessary and unwanted, without destroying the vital and the good or causing undue pain. What a comfort and relief to know that a steadying hand is always ready to catch me when I stumble on the dark and treacherous path!
The struggle for yoga and against the mind is a difficult battle that must be fought to the very end, or there is always the danger of the tricky, impure mind asserting itself again if one attempts to make progress on one’s own. By immersing myself little by little into the Essence of the Master, I am led to my own Essence. There is nothing to fear when walking in the footsteps of someone who exemplifies the Eternal Truth. When the sacred encounter happens, it is unmistakeable, and it is open and available to anyone who is ready to receive it. Even though I spend time meditating on that same Essence every day, it becomes all too easy to believe that the appearance of a True Guru is a commonplace thing. It is not! And truly the efforts of myself and my brother and sister disciples in our practice are not simply our own efforts, but rather the light of the Master infiltrating our muscles and bones, and carrying us along with the force of a thousand tides, inexorably but perhaps without our even feeling it, across the ocean of life and death and on to Reality.
