Guru means “the weighty one”. Imagine a sponge saturated with liquid. When we steep ourselves in our work, our craft, our study, our practice...we cultivate a certain sense of understanding.
In this way, each of us is Guru in something. When we know our weight, we can sit and feel comfortable in ourselves. We can speak and teach and be the “heavy” on what we know and in our experience.
This sense of self is intriguing and compelling but not foreign, it is within us all.
What do you have weight in? Where do you feel heavy with understanding?
