  1. Reminded me of this story

    A devotee heard his guru say, “God is in everything and everyone.” As he walked away pondering this wisdom, an enraged elephant appeared on the road ahead. “Run! Run!” shouted the mahout. The man thought to himself, “I am God and the elephant is also God, why should I be afraid?” The charging elephant knocked the man in the ditch. Bruised and upset, the man set off to see his guru to complain. After hearing the story, the guru said, “You are right that both you and the elephant are God. But why did you not listen to the mahout, who is also God, and get out of the way?”
