Social media is like a super big supermarket. If you enter this supermarket without knowing the needs inside, it will be very confusing.
This happens to many spiritual seekers. There are so many Gurus who claim to be enlightened on social media. For that reason, learn to know yourself inside.
If your inner side is a butterfly, look for a beautiful garden. If your inner side is a bird, find a cool tree for a shade. And pain is the key to unlock this.
Listen to the spiritual message behind the pain, use it as a compass to find a suitable Guru. If physically ill, find a Master who is excellent in physical health.
If mentally ill, find a Master with amazing mental stability. For example, for spiritual illness, meet Guru with profound spiritual achievements.
In addition, every enlightened Master has his own external signs, internal signs, and secret signs.
For him whose spiritual eyes are opened understands, the enlightened soul gives bright signs in his body. The shape of head, ears, lips, eyes, eyebrows, and etc.
There are a lot of signal. Too bad it can’t be told to the public. Or even it can be used to injure other people. And that is not the goal of learning spiritual.
The signs in it are simple, the vibrations are full of love. For those who are sensitive and easily touched, this vibration is easy to make the eyes cry.
Secret signs, some can be seen with open eyes, some can be seen with closed eyes. Or even more some shall be kept as a secret. It will be danger if opened to the public.
In addition, in the world of Light there is an old legacy called “Androgyny”. The light transcends any kind of gender.
In other words, Masters who have embodied the Light usually have a very minimum sexual attraction to the opposite sex. Even if the energy is there, it is only used as a spiritual compass.
For male teachers, it is a sign of longing for the sacred feminine. For female teachers, it is a sign of longing to unite with The sacred masculine.
Another sign that should be read, how one treats the holy book. If he uses holy books to attack people, it is politely be best avoided. Without any negative headlines at all.
Enlightened souls usually use holy books to purify themselves on the inside, and glorify others on the outside. This is the most recommended option.
Learn to transcend the signified state (nimitta) as well as the signless state (animitta). Sadly, very few people can get to this point.
His Holliness Thich Nhat Hanh seems to have gotten here: “If you insist on making a stupa for me, please remember that I am neither inside nor outside”.
For friends who have met a suitable true Guru, leave them to take care of themselves with devotion. That is a very saving shield. Remember this beautiful message.
“Born as a human being, born in a wealthy family, interested in beautifying the soul, meeting a true Guru”, that is the rarest blessing in this world.
May all beings be happy.
