    inner life especially in the beginning Otherwise our progress will be very slow and uncertain and we may become terribly confused We will get high elevating experiences but we will not give them adequate significance Doubt may eclipse our mind and we will say I am just an ordinary person so how can I have this kind of experience Perhaps I am deluding myself Or we will tell our friends and they will say It is all mental hallucination Forget about the spiritual life But if there is someone who knows what the Reality is he will say Don t act like a fool The experiences which you have had are absolutely real The Master will encourage and inspire the seeker and give him the proper explanations of his experiences Again if the seeker is doing something wrong in his meditation the Master will be in a position to correct him Why does one go to the university when one can study at home It is because he feels that he will get expert instruction from people who know the subject well Now you know that there have been a few very very few real men of knowledge who did not go to any university Yes there are exceptions Every rule admits of exceptions God is in everybody and if a seeker feels that he does not need human help he is most welcome to try his capacity alone But if someone is wise and wants to run toward his Goal instead of stumbling or merely walking then certainly the help of a Guru can be considerable Let us say that I am in London I know that New York exists and that I have to go back there What do I need to get me there An airplane and
