In order to become Buddha you either have to give up the idea of Buddha or give up the idea of you.

“This teacher-student relationship is never a permanent, co-dependent situation. At the point where we are actually beginning to follow the teacher’s instructions, usually he or she becomes more distant, and we are left to work things out on our own. Then, our life situations become the guru. And simultaneously, our inner guru wakes up.”
