Don’t be too busy designing your signature (should it be a tilted one, be straight, what designation and title would be more attractive, what address / popular place would give them more publicity). Instead, I would encourage you to leave footprints of uplifting each other.
In this culture, we’ve always bowed down to the footprints of our Guru’s so that we are able to walk on their path and leave this place better than we’ve found it.
What you refer to as the Guru is just a certain energy, a certain possibility. It is not the person. A certain person has only become a representative of that energy and that space. If you have to see, it is light that you need, not the light bulb. But right now that particular light bulb happens to be the source of light. So you tend to think “I cannot exist without the light bulb.” On one level it is true. But the nature of the Guru is not limited to time and #pace. So it is not because you sit next to the light bulb you get the maximum light. You could be a thousand miles away and you may receive more grace than the person who is right now sitting next to that person.
Success will not come to you without grace. Somehow, one way or the other you have to learn to be receptive to grace. Just your mental state may make you receptive, the way you keep your body may make you receptive, the way you keep your emotions may make you receptive or you have more complex methods, you understand the mechanics of how it works and you become receptive. But without grace there will be no success. You maybe brilliant but still you will be a failure. You may be immensely capable still you will be a failure. – Sadhguru
This Diwali may you open up yourself to be more receptive to grace.
Happy Diwali to you and your loved ones!
