Art of the Soul will donate 10% of its profits to those that were affected by Harvey, Irma & Maria.

Imagine you are in the vast ocean, and a great storm is brewing. You realize that everyone around you is also in this ocean, struggling as you are all the same. Then, a ship arrives, and the people on the ship extend their hands to those in the water, drawing them out from the storm and into the safety of the ship.

Many sages of the world have often thought of the world as a great ocean of illusion, surrounding and immersing in us. So tangled in the illusions of this reality and our egos, we are incapable of ourselves of realizing the truth within. This spark can only be lit by someone enlightened, or deep into the spiritual path, who draw us from where they are into the light.

It is for this reason, that spiritualists across time have stressed the need of finding an enlightened soul to teach them the intricacies of their common spirit. More often than not, this soul was seen as one coming in the form of a teacher. The people of India knew theirs as Guru, and the Sufis of the Muslim world knew theirs as Murshid- both meaning teacher. Guru in fact is derived from the Sanskrit ‘Gu’, meaning darkness, and the Persian ‘Ru’, meaning light. Hence ‘Guru’ was both teacher and enlightener. The disciples of Jesus knew him in Aramaic as Rabbi, which for the people of Israel conveyed the same sense. He taught them that they could meet with the father if they chose him to be their way, their guide.
