Two people who had awakened with the same guru met, and one – who made his living from teaching – said to the other “so you are still driving a bus?”
This can be interpreted in many different ways…
- It came from arrogance
- It came from a gentle nudge, saying “you have such wonderful gifts, why don’t you share them with others through another form of paid work?”
- It was a nudge with an edge to it, to shake the recipient up
- Or a mix of the above
Of course, even if I were there – or was one of the two – these are still just stories.
