There are many “enlightened” gurus in the world, both genuine and fake. Fake gurus should obviously be avoided at all cost, but even genuine, enlightened gurus impart information that is less than helpful. The typical enlightened individual is all too eager to help and this usually means that they will describe a life that you should live as derived from their enlightened perspective. You may hear phrases such as “living in the now” along with suggestions on how to do so. Or any number of concepts related to how he lives his life.
It may seem reasonable to want to imitate or emulate an enlightened person, but those imitative behaviors will not get you any closer to an enlightened state. If your goal is only to try on the enlightened person’s “clothing”, then you only have to pay some money for tapes or seminars or meetings.
The “enlightened” state is our birthright. It does not help you to try to imitate the state of being that is natural to an enlightened person – natural because they went thru a traumatic process to arrive there. You need to arrive in a similar manner. Not with the clothing of an enlightened person on your back, but naked down to your soul and ready to let everything go.
