So in the midst of my confusion, after reading an article about the importance of a teacher having a Guru, I consulted two dear friends of mine. They too were teachers so I hoped to find an answer from their own experience. And I was right, the answer I received was so simple yet so profound - it sent chills down my spine.
"So, what are your thoughts about the need to have a Guru? What is Guru?" I asked.
"G, yoU aRe yoU," they replied.
