The Mind of The Guru and The Mind of The Businessman Day 277

What Is The Similarity between The Guru's Mind and The Businessman's Mind?

Let's have a REAL Look at Their Fears and Desires: 

The Guru
>Fear of surviving - fear that when he/she does not help  others - the poor, the sick etc. 

he/she will not have eternal life
>>Desires to help the poor, the sick  etc. so he/she can survive - as the 'eternal' self - within 'oneness'
>>>makes an organization to do what he needs to do
>>>>monks and devotees join the organization
>>>>>monks asks for donations from devotees
>>>>>>gets more donations, the non-profit organization survives
>>>>>>>more projects get done
>>>>>>>>guru becomes happy  (Desire satisfied)

The Businessman

>Fear of surviving - fear of not making money 
>>desires for opportunities to make more money to get to a bigger markets to get big profit
to survive
>>>analyzes market trends
>>>>makes a plan
>>>>> implements the plan
>>>>>>gets into a bigger market so one will survive in business
>>>>>>>gets more money, so business survives
>>>>>>>>he/she becomes happy (Desire satisfied)

The Guru's Mind:

Fear : Fear of surviving as that 'eternal self' - who helps the poor, the sick etc.
Desire: for the non - profit organization to survive 

The Businessman's Mind:

Fear: Fear of surviving - as the business - 
Desire: To get a job that pays a salary so the individual can survive - having food to eat etc.

In essence, both has FEAR of Survival which is fueling the Desires

The momentary reward upon getting what was desired 
is happiness (positive energy experience) 

This is who they have become - who we have become as the mind,

A program

> > Desire
>>>Satisfying the Desire

Fear of Survival is behind our Desires
