"There’s no surprise here!
I feel that believing in a guru/living God is analogous to believing in Santa. It’s a phase of human development that juices our imagination, enlivens our inner magic and keeps us hooked by and excited for future presents, (if I’m a good girl/good boy and keep Santa Guru happy, I’ll get everything on my wish list, like enlightenment and salvation). It’s also designed to keep us defined around the patriarchy as our source of “everything”. (Even if it’s Mrs. Claus Guru we believe in, it's still a tentacle of the patriarchy).
Some argue that it’s not good to lie to kids about a fictitious character, some say it’s healthy to entice the magic. Either way, the bubble eventually bursts, we feel the loss, disappointment or relief and wake up from our hypnotic theta state.
But imagine what it would be like for a moment if Santa was in fact, real:
- half the moms would want to have sex with him (and would therefore start competing with each other.... think botox, boob jobs, skinny diets, fear of aging)
- guys would want to emulate him (for all the power, wealth and women)
- we’d kiss his feet and wipe his ass in exchange for his “secrets”
- everyone would want to spend time in his Ashram at the North Pole (where we’d all have to look/dress/act like elves)
- in time all the power would go to Santa’s head (imagine thousands of people literally crying at your feet and telling you that you’re God all day long.... that shit eventually creates mental illness). He would develop a host of personality disorders, get drunk on the the power and start behaving like a crazy person with too much wealth (shouting at co-dependent followers, grabbing pussies, gas-lighting, firing anyone who doesn’t submit to his whims, having his lawyer thrown in jail, building a wall at the Canadian/Russian border, making female Elves wear tinsel covered burkas, hoarding all the wealth, not giving a shit about the environment, separating believers from non-believers so he can continue his brainwashing, etc. Eventually, he would have no choice (because it would be everyone else’s fault) but to have his elves make AR-15’s, fighter-jets and nuclear weapons to fend off all those non-believers.
So you see, it’s a two way street. We can’t have the manipulative guru without the needy disciples. And vice versa.
As long as we need our magic fix (and I believe we do for a while - it’s part of what elevates us out of the physical density of terror and disconnection), there will always be a savior to fill that need. But this is just a phase in our soul’s development.
And even though the guru (spiritual teacher) teaches you; “this is enlightenment”... “this is the most awakened state here with me and these teachings”... “it doesn’t get anymore evolved than this”... “if you leave me, you leave the light”... etc., even if you believe it wholeheartedly and experience all kinds of mind-blowing, bliss and love-filled healings, you will eventually wake up from this dream where they tell you you’re fully awake. And what awaits is a whole new and grounded you that doesn’t need to extort your power (through sex, labor, time, worship, etc.). You’ll even see the illusion of enlightenment, just as you did with Santa, and your life will go on, in truer humility and servitude.
But sometimes the only way out is through."
