The Guru Is Not a Cultic Object

From time to time a Great Siddha appears, an apparent individual who is happy with God, to the point where his own life on every level is constantly realizing the functions of God. In truth this individual is not separate from the functions of God. 
During his lifetime he manifests those functions, communicates them, demonstrates them to other beings, reminding them, re-awakening them to the conscious enjoyment of the functions of Reality.
The entire purpose of such a one is to reveal God, to reveal the functions of God, so that devotees who find God also in such a human Guru may always live in God, enjoy the great Siddhis, true Siddhis, that are the Divine itself, while they live, and even beyond the lifetime of that human Guru. 


Such a Guru does not appear in the world in order to create a cult 
in which he is forever afterwards the object,
 the fetish, 
of mere belief and acknowledgment. 

There is an appropriate form of relationship to the human Guru, and it is not the cultic form. Truly, the devotee must understand in the company of his human Guru, and he must discover that the one who is his human Guru and the specific function that is always lived to him through his human Guru are the Divine activity.

The Divine must be free to do its work.
