Because we're physical beings, and because we are identified with our physical bodies, we seem to think that a Guru, a real Guru, is also a physical body. But it's not that way.
And even though He has left that particular physical body, His presence is stronger than ever. And for me, He is that presence. You know. He's a living presence in my own heart and when I remember myself, I'm remembering Him. When I'm aware..., I'm aware of that presence that He is; that's what He is for me. It's almost as if He is the air. And the space that we live in.
And He never goes anywhere. We don't look. When ever we look, He's there. So, even when we're not looking, He's there. But we don't look. So, my whole spiritual practice is to keep aware and to keep seeing Him all the time. You know. As much as I can. And when the heart is charged up and turned on, you know, that's when you're aware of His presence. That's who He is for me now – become the whole universe.
