I asked this question of all my spiritual Masters. None of them said, “When I was young, instead of being a sailor, doctor, astronaut, president, or other professions, I wanted to become a Guru.” I never wanted to grow up and sent spiritual thoughts in the morning nor even to get close to God. He is there doing His job. We just pray for things and only thank Him if our prayers are fulfilled. The spiritual Masters somehow get drawn to this path and cannot really pinpoint one particular incident. Spirituality is a drug. Once you get hooked on it, everything else is secondary. The teacher aspect comes as information flows through you. If you know a child who tells you, “I want to be a spiritual Master when I grow up,” I would like to meet the child and find out what’s wrong with him or her. —Satish Daryanani
