by Alan Cohen

A consultant is someone who borrows your watch to tell you what time it is. If you do not know how to tell time, the consultant is very helpful indeed. But ultimately your best interest is to learn to tell time yourself. A good guru, psychologist, personal coach, psychic, astrologer, or healer helps you get in touch with your own wisdom. A guru sits beside a river selling bottled river water. If you do not know how to access the river yourself, the guru serves. And if the guru shows you to way to the river, he or she serves in the highest way. When you find the river yourself and plumb its life-giving waters, you have established your own relationship with Source. A guru is an extension of your own true self, showing up in an external form as a temporary teaching device, assisting you to become acquainted with the guru within. Ultimately the only guru is truth, which lives within you and everyone all the time.
