Once you have secured a Guru, leave everything to him, even the desire to achieve liberation. He knows you more than you yourself ever can. He will direct you as best as is good for you. Your duty is only to obey and smother the tendency to drift away from him. You may ask, how are we to earn our food, if we attach ourselves to a Guru like this? Be convinced that the Lord will not let you starve. He will give you not only food but also immortality.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
