The value of a guru

Ascended Master Gautama Buddha, January 1, 2013 through Kim Michaels.

 

How will you attain Christ discernment if an external guru has to tell you, in every instance, what is Christ what is not Christ? It is perfectly valid and legitimate to have a guru for a time who does give you a certain frame of reference and certain examples of what is Christ and what is anti-christ. You will not build Christ discernment by continuing to follow the guru, by remaining loyal to the guru, by being a blind follower even of a seeing guru. 

You will build discernment only by daring to use your own inner faculties. Even though you may be wrong many times, you will learn from each instance where you do dare to evaluate. From there you will gradually grow in discernment. That is, if you fulfill one simple requirement, namely that you are willing to look at yourself, to look at what Jesus so aptly called the beam in your own eye—rather than focusing all of your attention on seeing the splinters in the eyes of your brothers. 

Look at the many people I am talking about who have this patchwork in their minds of these disconnected beliefs that they have stitched together. You will see that in many cases they have come to accept these many different beliefs because they have not been willing to look at themselves and their own psychology.
