Are You A Guru?

So what is it with all these damaged egotistical people who call themselves a 'guru'? If I see anyone call themselves a guru I instantly know they are insecure and seeking attention. We might be able to seek to learn things from others, get help or advice, but to look upon another person as a guru is just wrong. We are all gurus, but only to ourselves, no one else, everyone else's path is their own and we each have to make our decisions and find our own way. The new age movement is creating monsters who want to be everyone's guru and in the long term it isn't doing the 'guru' any good either if people allow them to be theirs. No one else is your 'master' or 'teacher' but you. No one else knows you as well as you do, and no one else will always be there, only you. We each only have ourselves to rely on. Realising this is the first step to spiritually growing up.
