When a person approaches me with pain and sadness, I have often said profound and enlightened stuff and told the person,”you know all this pain that your are feeling is really an illusion…” and that kind of shamed the person more for  being vulnerable…But the pain is real very real..till one feels the depth of the pain…it remains real..A true teacher (which I certainly am not since I am still feeling real emotions), but I have had one…A true Guru will first hold your hand and take you to the places in your heart were pain and hurt has been blocked and locked away since childhood and more has been piled on, will first validate the pain and suffering…and then once you have done it yourself…the pain will transform to love…and understanding and true knowledge of how all pain is self created and self inflicted starts to dawn and then it stops being pain…But till then a real teacher will be compassionate, understanding of the pain…and yet sometimes when you are not snapping out of it use the ZEN STICK and slash you with it…. “With great power comes greater responsibility..” Peter Parker of Spider Man…actually his uncle said this to him before he gets murdered by a thug…

Love
