A. I get emails from those who have not found a spiritual Master, a guide, a teacher. They have read spiritual books and have gotten inspired. Now, questions arise within them. They are confused about what is right or wrong. This is the state of having half knowledge. These thoughts and emails, sent to them, will help but will not free them completely. Finding a correct guide in today’s environment is not easy. You can pray for it. There is another option. Use the teachings you have in front of you. Contemplate them in silence. The guides want us to eventually find the guide within. The ones whose wisdom you read can do the same, even though you may not have them in the physical form. They are beyond form. Think they are present with you. The inner guide is your true self. Awareness of that makes you a self-realized person. — Satish Daryanani
