Hear a parable. There was a master of a house who planted a vineyard and put a fence around it and dug a winepress in it and built a tower and opened the gates to the public. He said to everyone who would listen you can have an equal share of the harvest but you must work very hard and when the season for fruit draws near I will take the first fruits and at the end of the harvest I will take the last.

In the West you will hear people say that to be a follower is to be a loser. To be a follower in the West is a diminishment of yourself and a lessening of your power. In the East they think about these things differently. A guru has followers who learn from the guru and they are proud of this and they learn to let go of the ego. They have had thousands of years more practice in learning meditation and spirituality then we have here in the west. The problem with our society if you boil it down to it's base components is that people here in the West are not looking inward and being their true selves. When you are being your true self you don't look to steal from others and you don't lie to others. How much would our society change if just everyone was truthful all the time and if they didn't steal from others? If the media and the government and we as individuals were holding ourselves to a higher standard without an outside force holding our feet to the fire making us act good instead of us being good?
