We do not need engolados and arrogant gurus of masses; We do not need hypocritical mistagogos; don't need arrogant and narcissistic Master of narrow views and that they want to hold the monopoly of truth. Calle Ramiro writes.
We need spiritual friends who inspire us and to inspire, to encourage us and those who encourage, that walk with us, to be, along the long and winding path towards the Unconditioned. Otherwise, as Buddha, it is better to walk alone as the elephant.
Spiritual friends make us the Search lighter. With them we share our hesitation and fears, with them to comfort us and them don't stop learning. If all friend is a treasure, a spiritual friend is a double treasure.
I have been fortunate throughout my life to have many friends espiritulales, which have been the great teaching and the solace of my life, from my first spiritual friend, my mother, and my first spiritual friend, my brother Miguel Ángel, to many others that I have help do to suture the cracks of the soul. Among them always is I present in my soul Babaji Shivananda Varanasi, appearing in a photo of many years ago. His words are inscribed in my cells.
-You have to know to look and above all keep calm. Equanimity, always equanimity, Ramiro. We all like the fingers of a great cosmic hand and have to learn how to connect with her, because we are never really disconnected from it. Meditation is very helpful in this regard. The heart of all creatures is the same, but since children we have superimposed codes, schemes, and the ego, which stands between one and their real being has been formed.
-How empty are humans!-I told him, and he added:
-There is much dissatisfaction. You can't beat only with real class materials. We must train the equanimity and balance. You should see it all as if it were a film. You have to look quietly, without being confused by Maya, the illusory. We always dance according to the will of the absolute, but we do not understand it. What sense does this life if there is no peace?
We sat facing the river more sacred and not of the world: the Ganges. We communicated us with words and long silences. Sometimes it was meditative and inner peace contagious my soul of revealing stillness. It musitaba to say:
-Meditation is the best path of life for all. It is the most direct way to be. We need to serve others and gain the inner peace.
We were great spiritual friends. What lucky I was to have your friendship!
A spiritual friend is a wonderful support in the adventure of the spirit. Its strength is our strength; their motivation is our motivation; their presence, even more beyond the body, warms the frigid soul of loneliness and invited to follow in search of the sense.
I have never needed gurus, guides or saviors, or teachers who I engatusen with spiritual analgesics. But I have always needed and I need spiritual friends, walking with them side by side and hope in hope.
