True morality, true religiosity and true spirituality are all interconnected, interdependent and interpenetrating. Except for some subtlest differences of an argumentative nature, God, Self, Soul, Spirit, Truth, Consciousness, etc. point practically to the same one thing. Mai is the finalmost name for, God of Religiosity, Self of Humanity, Soul of the Highest Knowledge and Bliss, Spirit of all the Highest Powers with which the whole universe is governed and worked and adjusted, Truth of all the Subtlest Philosophies and Consciousness of the Highest Spiritual Communion and Union-practising Unionists (Yogis).
It may turn the brains of the swollen headed, atheistic modernists, to be told that to enter and proceed on the spirituality zone requires the help, guidance and grace of Teachers, Saints, Sages, Masters, etc. The modern world has simply boasted, out of blind and ignorance-ful egotism about one's own powers and capacities beyond all measures, and has declared its complete independence, with no indebtedness and nothing of the Guru or God. As stated in Mai-ism, on the highest religious plane or the spirituality plane, you cannot take a single solid step without the two chariot wheels of (a) God's grace and (b) Guru's grace and that is the spirituality stage near the border zone of spirituality shown in the Chart. The said truth is fully realised, when the border is touched.
A poor ordinary pigmy creature, whose maximum outlook even in imagination does not go beyond a little hazy and nominal worldly idea of virtue, morality and character, or the man who thinks that life has reached its perfection on living a little virtuously and with a little sacrifice here and there, has absolutely no idea about the unfathomable potentialities of the human life and most intricate and most wonderful and invisibly working powerful machinery, which is at work under the bottom of the human life and destiny. the man if mere bread and butter, wealth and woman, name and fame, power and praise, with a full stop at the end of his worldly intellect, has no idea that human capacities can be developed beyond all visible and believable limitations, and behind the screen of what any ordinary man knows and calls as "man". There are so many occult powers, forces and energies within the different sheaths and bodies of "man", that the real "man" is entirely unknown till now. And one with quite an ant's outlook and complete ignorance about the man's unknown world within him, can never see the truthfulness of the truth, that beyond a certain stage, the Teacher, the Master or the Guru is entirely indispensable. It is only the swollen-headed childishness of little thinking, that resents the very word of a Guru, Teacher or Authority. In fact if the word Guru or Teacher be given the widest meaning, viz. the source form which one has learnt or received or can learn or receive any illumination on any subject, there is not a single person on the earth who can boast and truthfully swear that he has no Guru. When anyone says, "I have no Guru" it only means, "I have not accepted anyone as my Guru" or that "I have none as one single Guru" and not that there has been no source from which he has received any learning or illumination. Under Mai-ism the word "Guru" is used in such widest sense. Whatever illuminates, directs, guides, protects, saves and leads you towards your destination in any subject matter is your "Guru" for that subject, even though he may be only one step ahead of you. Mai-ism insist upon entertaining the concurrent notion of gratitude with possible return or remuneration, along with the notion of a "Guru". Under Mai-ism "Guru" does not necessarily imply perfection or supernatural powers, etc. Under Mai-ism, Guru and service with gratitude, which is the very first requirement of the six G's of Mai-ism, go together.
The popular opinion about full justification for the strongest opposition to the idea of a Guru or teacher, master, Saint or Sage is based on the pigmy outlook and pitiable ignorance about what an immeasurable vastness extends beyond what they call "the capacities of "man" and on the entirely selfish, snatching mentality of the ungratefulness and blind self-egotism. There is surely the other side as well, and it is that of cheating, exploiting, abusing and black-mailing wickedness of some scoundrels and black sheep, spreading havoc in the name of religion. But it goes without saying that such disappointing experiences of two-penny worth Gurus and disciples can have absolutely no relevancy or existence whatsoever, when we are discussing the need of a Guru for the highly exalted and advanced soul, that has passed through so many experiences and tests, as the Mai-ism Chart imposes on the aspirant.
