Your husband or wife could be your GURU!
A Nasiruddin story.
On one occassion, a neighbour found Mullah Nasiruddin on his knees, looking for something.
‘What have you lost Mullah!’, he asked.
‘My key’, said Nasiruddin.
After few minutes of searching the other man said, ‘Where did you drop it?’.
‘Then why for heaven’s sake, are you looking here?’.
‘There is more light here’.
All your enlightenment is at home. In more ways than one.
You have a guru who is either your husband or your wife. But you want to look for a guru outside, where there is more light.
You have everything that you need, perhaps in your own closet. But you want to look for it outside, because it is more attractive. There is more light.
