Guru Purnima – An emotion expressed

“Reality is above and beyond but needs to be explored ‘within.’” – A guidance by Guru! It feels so real to observe the effect of the sun moving from east to west, causing days and nights. We have even labeled this phenomenon as sunrise or sunset. Now we know that the Sun is intact and at the center, and rather it’s Earth that is spinning, which is causing days and nights.Had our teachers not taught us in schools, would we even believe it sitting here on the earth? We would still go by what ‘we’ think is real with our tiny brains, short sites, and perceptions we carry… right? Facts, Truths are far away from perception! Reality isn’t about what we perceive; it isn’t about what we understand; reality is “what it is”!! Absolute and unambiguous!! It is observed only by lifting ourselves on other scales at different heights. Once the reality is established and the truth is out, you just know it, irrespective of your current position. A quest to find the truth about the “Self” is a similar game of reality. It needs subtle uplifting, a shift in view, and a conscious effort to experience who truly “I” am……. Once it’s experienced by our own ‘self,’ the battle ends!! However, embarking on this journey is impossible without the presence of a guiding star in our lives, known as a #Master or #Guru. They serve as a beacon, illuminating the path and providing invaluable guidance. On the occasion of #gurupurnima today, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to the Guru whose vision is sharp as a laser beam, unique as a retina, and whose focus is pointing like the steadfast directive of Polaris – Invariably upward!I am truly grateful and honored to be guided by such a Supreme – Bhupendra C.
