The guru is a fallacy.
The man standing on the mountaintop that has mastered all the skills needed to get where you want to go, is a lie. A sham. A figurehead created to perpetuate a myth, to milk massive amounts of dollars out of your pockets.
Yes there are people who have mastered many skills. Yes, there are people who have endured many battles. Yes, there are people who possess what you need to know, and can provide to you knowledge without you having to obtain it the hard way.
But these gurus are not magical beings. They are humans, pure flesh and blood, just like you. They don’t need pedestal or accolades as much as they need a cup of coffee and a good conversation.
Beware the ones that introduce themselves to you as a guru. That should tell you all you need to know.
