I felt so drawn to Paramahansa Yogananda that it felt like I was coming home. And I wondered why we all are drawn to different paths and different teachers. What were the determining factors—our stage of development, our scared contract, karma, style of teaching, similar wavelengths, all of the above? Then I read this passage in Eckhart Tolle‘s magnificent book, The Power of Now.
If you are drawn to an enlightened teacher, it is because there is already enough presence in you to recognize presence in another. There were many people who did not recognize Jesus or the Buddha, as there are and always have been many people who are drawn to false teachers. Egos are drawn to bigger egos. Darkness cannot recognize light.
