I like subtlety. Rather than preach or advise, I just like to talk and let ideas seep in—to let ideas filter through an individual’s personal experience. Then I think that the message sinks deeper, so that it can resurface again from within.
It’s like pushing a beach ball to the bottom of a pool. The deeper an idea sinks in, the greater its personal meaning as it is uplifted by the buoyancy of our spirit.
By listening to unambiguous advice, I think the message stays at the level of thinking. It lingers in the higher brain centers—which, in our scientific culture would seem like a good thing—but it often fails to continue its journey to our hearts.
I think there are too many self-proclaimed gurus in this world. You-ru, I-ru, we are all gurus.
