How else could you explain the radical shifts in perception that can  
happen in one's relationship to a guru, shifts that are rather common 
also. After major disappointments the perfect divine guru changes to 
the embodiment of Satan. I have witnessed this kind of shift in a 
friend of mine. To me both these extremes are just projections. The 
person, imperfect human being, behind the guru mask is not seen.

I meet on daily basis people who shine forth the divine Self. They 
are quite ordinary people. It takes a certain kind of personality 
structure and cultural influence for one to become a guru.
