When a living being has attained a certain advancement along a Path, a Divinely appointed Guru will be sent to ease the student out of remaining karmic debts. As one slowly learns to unblock and purify the channel flowing from the Divine into one's Self, the Divine will manifest in one's life in gradually more obvious and concrete ways--until materializing in the holy body of a Guru. You will recognize the Divine visitor on first sight, for student and Guru have met many times along the circular river of infinite time. When the Divine arrives, it is unambiguously familiar.
