Some people rev up their motorcycles or sports car engines to draw attention. Some play loud music on their boats or vehicles so people turn to look at them. Some beautiful ladies wear clothes that draw attention to them. I always wanted my spiritual Masters to notice me. If they ignored me, I would be sad. I am a Guru-hog and wanted continued eye contact with them. Attention from others is needed because we are insecure about ourselves. Attention from others keeps us going and builds up our confidence. If we are secure about who we are, then we do not need attention. Attention should only be paid to what we do and not to the glory that comes from what we do. In the beginning, I would seek approval from my Masters for these written thoughts. Now whatever comes, I am secure that they come from God’s will. — Satish Daryanani
