[quote="Luke"] By "merge" I mean realizing that the essence of his mind and my mind are the same in their ultimate nature.
Too many people these days rush after very high teachings... Without great faith in a guru, little can be accomplished.
Also, we often look for famous known teachers, high teachers which name is sounding good in ears, and so it can happen we are falling over the feet of present wisdom-compassion, ready in humility (= selfless) to offer us teaching still we don't recognize at that moment. There are great teachers whether famous or not, it is up to us to recognize them when time is ready.
Nature isn't famous.
