U R Not My GURU, But Everyone is My Teacher

My third copy of the Ram Dass book  'Be Here Now' 
I've never met Ram Dass, but I'm quite familiar with his book
'Be Here Now'.
Be Here Now...Again
It's a book I love and hate at the same time, because I can't stand the thought and concept of a guru.
To me most gurus are nothing but con-men taking people for a ride, either to get their money, sleep with them, use them as cheap labour, or all of the above.
I like Ram Dass as a teacher, but he and his guru will never be my guru.  
Don't fall into the trap of thinking a GURU has all the answers for U.
Be your own guru and let life be your teacher.
As much as I like Ram Dass I think people like Oprah are better spiritual teachers as far as life goes, because she brings the stories of the great spiritual teachers of the world onto her stage and most of them are just ordinary people who have a lesson to teach us in the life situations that they had to live through.
I watched the Netflix show released on Ram Dass' birthday this year called 'Ram Dass: Going Home' and while it is worth a watch it is still a bit on the Hippy-Dippy side of life for me.
Ram Dass sings the song 'Row, Row, Row Your Boat' in
'Ram Dass: Going Home' and while I agree life is but a dream, that is only half of the story, because life is also but a nightmare.
I think Carl Jung is right about the shadow side of life and how it must be integrated into your life, so you really know yourself.
So while dreams are important, so are the nightmares life throws up from your inner depths, too.
Oddly enough, today is the 1st of May (AKA May Day) and on my calendar for May is a boat going down the stream.
"May Day is a public holiday usually celebrated on May 1.
It is an ancient northern hemisphere spring festival and a traditional spring holiday in many cultures. 
Dances, singing, and cake are usually part of the festivities.
In the late 19th century, May Day was chosen as the date for International Workers' Day by the Socialists and Communistsof the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago.
International Workers' Day may also be referred to as "May Day", but it is a different celebration from the traditional May Day."
In my hemisphere of the Earth May Day isn't a spring day, it's an Autumn or Fall day.
Oceans of Insight?
2018 and that Sinking/Synching Feeling?
"Mayday is an emergency procedure word used internationally as a distress signal in voice-procedure radio communications.
It is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by aviators and mariners, but in some countries local organizations such as firefighters, police forces, and transportation organizations also use the term.
The call is always given three times in a row ("Mayday mayday mayday") to prevent its being mistaken for some similar-sounding phrase under noisy conditions, and to distinguish an actual mayday call from a message about a mayday call."
The Night Ocean?
Life isn't some "it's all GOOD world cruise" no matter what some self styled guru or teacher wants to tell you.
It's a swim in some very deep water, no matter how calm and pleasant that can appear to be on the surface.
The true lessons of life are learned in what comes up from the deeper water from below and that can be scary when there is no sand to stick your head into.
And on the subject of not being my guru, I also watched the Tony Robbins Netflix doco called 'Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru'.
He can say that again, because I don't know how anybody takes this guy seriously as some great spiritual teacher.
To me he is everything I hate when I think of gurus sucking people in for their money and making people believe that their words and teachings are so profound.
Most of the time guys like Robbins are just rehashing words and phrases from other people who have gone before them and just putting their own spin on things to make themselves lots of $$$$.
When I see suckers handing over cash to people like Tony Robbins, I feel like that I am on a world cruise.
But one that I don't want to be on, to tell the truth.
God help us all...and help yourself, without the help of so called GURUs.
With the exception of JP Sears that is, as I think that he may just be the real deal when it comes to being a guru;-)

Who else but a real guru could be in a podcast today that states it was recorded on the 18th June, 2018 when today is the 1st of May, 2018?
Talk about "Be Here Now":-)
Oh, and in the TV show 'Harrow' that I mentioned in my last post -
The female police officer is named Soroya Dass.

The sheer volume of your synchronicity is legion. You must devote hours a day for your posts. I am glad you synch! Shine forth! 87

I guess we all need a hobby and mine is documenting synchronicity at the moment.
The trouble is for every post I write another ten more take form in my head that I feel I should document.
Which makes it probable that I will die in front of my computer screen by the way this is all going.
