“We want saints and gurus and leaders and heroes because we are lazy. We think they have done all the work, and all that we have to do is just to follow them. You know, when you follow somebody, you’re not only destroying yourself, but the other whom you follow.” –Krishnamurti
The usual reason for following a guru is because the guru has answers that you didn’t have. So, instead of following that guru, you should ask yourself the question “Why didn’t I come up with those answers?”. The answer to that question highlights the path to follow. Take whatever answers and tools available, but the most important quest is to figure out how you can answer your own questions.
My 2 cents.
