Note to Self No.8: Staying Focused (and Some More)

(As told by my guru over breakfast today)

Distractions will come. People will call on you. Decide which one/s you will entertain. Ask yourself “Will this one contribute to my present calling?”

Do not put gurus on pedestals. They, too, are human. I used to do that to people from whom I have learned so much, but not anymore. Some of them turned [what they have to offer] into commodities. Some ceased to listen to others, even imposing themselves on them. Some created followers who believe they stand on high moral ground.

Finish your PhD. It will earn you at least a chance to speak. If you screw up that single chance, that’s your fault. (I love him!)
