The Teacher and the Student are One.

A true guru will never allow a disciple to kiss his feet.Instead, a true guru will kiss the feet of the disciple for the guru will have realized that the disciple is everything he, the guru, has wished for since the beginning of time. Moral of the story. Self is diverse; the cause - loneliness - matters not as much as the purpose - Companionship otherwise known as Love. All this is Self embracing itself through Self-desired, Self-created and Self-perceived otherness. Yet all otherness verily is Self and the purpose of Self verily is togetherness; togetherness being synonymous with Companionship and Love.
