First of all, I would like to say thank you for this great website.

There is something what I do not understand:

Master Samael is the guru and he said:

"Do not follow me. I am just a signpost. Reach your own Self-realization."

1. Do we not work to find our Inner Guru?

2. Is there an Internal (our own) Guru and an external Guru?

3. Do we find our Guru at the same time when We find our real vocation?

4. Does self realization mean the meeting with our Guru?

5. Does our own Guru other than Master Samael?

6. Do we meet with our inner Guru in the superior worlds at the same time when we find our vocation?

I try to meditate on the questions but I truly feel I need external informations to go ahead..

Thank you

First, the word guru simply means "teacher." There are many kinds and levels of teachers.

1. Do we not work to find our Inner Guru?


Without your inner guru, you would not even be interested in liberation. You are interested in Gnosis because your guru is calling you. The call is to return to your true love, which is your Innermost. To return is to work on liberating yourself from yourself so you can become That which IS the Being.

2. Is there an Internal (our own) Guru and an external Guru?


How many teachers have you had? Not just in this life, in all your lives? Just so, there are many gurus who help us on our path. Yet, there is only one root guru: our Innermost. Sadly, humanity has fallen into the false belief that the guru is an external being who must be worshipped and followed. This is an invention of the ego.

3. Do we find our Guru at the same time when We find our real vocation?


No. Your vocation is given according to the will of your Innermost, at the time you need to do it. Some are doing their vocation while asleep. Others begin at some stage of their path. It is up to the Innermost and your karma.

4. Does self realization mean the meeting with our Guru?


No. Self-realization means the Inner Being and you become one. One meets the inner guru when karma and the will of God determines it must be so.

5. Does our own Guru other than Master Samael?


Your inner guru is your Innermost, your Atman, your Spirit. You also have other gurus in the internal worlds: masters who help you. Samael is one of them, as is Jesus, etc. Yet, your mother and father are also gurus, as is anyone who teaches your consciousness. From this point of view, we view all beings as our gurus, since they teach us about our egos. The man who stimulates your anger is not an enemy, he is your guru, because he is showing you an ego that traps your consciousness. This is why we learn to treat all beings as sacred and holy.

6. Do we meet with our inner Guru in the superior worlds at the same time when we find our vocation?
