You are right, it is best not to idolize the person that shows the way. It is best to see them as a "mentor".
I am recently being drawn to Sadhguru and have attended 2 of his retreats this year. Thankfully I am able to continue to follow and listen to him on youtube and his website.
I will definitely check out your hubpages!
but all he can do is lead you in his direction, he cannot give you the priceless treasure of eternal life. so really he has no eternal value
Looks like Celafoe has got into the "narrow-minded" speciality of saying that "There is only my way, and that is mine!" I see it in the other comment on Buddha...
Remember, there are many who also feel Jesus is DEAD! :)
Live and let live as Jesus!
@Harmony 155 - Open-mindedness is as important as having a Guru! The Lord will come in any form and we NEED to be open-minded to see and perceive.
All the best to you in your journey...
buddha has no eternal value. he is dead. Jesus is ALIVE. to compare Him with buddha is an offense to me a l Christian. And the spirit within will lead you astray unless it is the one and only Holy Spirit of JesusChrist, God in the flesh.
You have a closed mind. Christians tend to be intolerant of other religions. Your response is typical. But millions have also been helped by Buddhist teachings and other religions. You may become a little more mature in the future.
I feel like laughing at celafoe's narrow-mindedness and foolishness! As if me saying JESUS IS DEAD will actually make that the Truth!!!
The Buddha is the same as Jesus for God exists in the devotee's heart and he cares not what you call him/her/it!
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing what I think is the underlying essence of every religion!
Very well put. I, as well, cannot say that I have a single guru. I look to nature, the world, people I may even walk past on the street, my "inner voice" etc. These are the things that help me to become better acquainted with the world around me.
I will visit your hub. Thanks!
I am glad you have found a path that speaks to your heart but please keep in mind that everyone has their own path to find and follow.
Yssu: We are connected by the same guru
