It is always good to have the guidance of a Master, who may also be your mentor at the same time. But, my advice is not to let this self-imposed requirement delay you in your quest for spiritual development any further. In the meantime, there are so much resources in this blog and people to whom you can turn to for advice.
In the realm of the spiritual, your Master shall come to you when you are least expecting it. I read about the Akashi Records – the Heavenly Book of Universe Knowledge in Chinese -and I remember it is mentioned somewhere that when you are ready the Divine will arrange without your knowing for you to have access to the spiritual information. And, it can come in many forms – the chanced encounter and conversation with someone, reading an article, watching TV or even having a dream.
In the meantime, while you await the arrival of a Master, it pays to devote some time to improving your receptiveness to spiritual sensitivity by meditating and reading wisely about the subject matters. When the Master finally arrives, at least you have already done your homework and are at the level to best receive the knowledge and training. I am not a Master, and I do not think I qualify as a Mentor either. But, I can offer some useful advice. I always mention that I am one of those locksmiths or key keepers who may happen to have some of the keys you need to open up the doors to the sacred knowledge. So feel free to come and find out whether the keys are with me or someone else, and draw them for yourself. Be bold in spirits not only to learn but unlearn. Our baggage of the past – our ego and our pride and prejudices are hindrances in our learning process and we need to shed them if necessary.
