What passes away is not Eternal.
Every form will pass away, and the Essence is formless.
If you are attached to the form you are making a mistake.
It is not the form which gives you light,
but something else which is deep inside your own Heart.
That is your Guru.
That Guru abides in the heart of all Beings,
not only human beings, but all the animals and plants.
You will see this when you see your own Essence within.
Then every plant and animal will speak to you as they speak to me.
