Being with guru’s physical body will never ensure proximity to guru. If you are one with the guru’s consciousness, you are always with Him and totally as well as completely connected with the guru. This is more permanant as well. Do not have the misunderstanding that those who are physically close to the guru are actually “close” to Him. Some of you who are far away physically from guru are closer to him (through unity of consciousness) than those who are physically near the guru. Being in physical proximity, and at the same time being totally ego-less and in complete surrender, like Shama or Mhalsapati to Shirdi Sai Bhagawan is a real grace and blessing. Then the disciple and the Guru are one, though in separate bodies. This is possible and achievable, if you have consistency in effort and total determination and a will for the annihilation of individual ego.
