HAHAHA - Cool Beans, John! COOL BEANS, INDEED!
Phew! Glad we got these cleared up - okay, back to amazing connections!
John, my friend,
No apologies necessary - AT ALL!
Whenever we have a chance to converse, I relish every word of our conversations. And, too, I ALWAYS learn something in all the threads in which we participate... (Still happily astonished at a blog post of yours you shared in one of our last conversations...)
Just noticed I misspelled your name, Lesley - my apologies.
Vincent, my apologies if I came across as diminishing your discussion of the word "guru" - your words always carry an inspired light, if not command our respect and attention!
If anything, I just wanted to emphasize that the worse guru's are those who believe they "know it all" - someone who knows and appreciates what they don't know is a true teacher!
And Lao Tzu said that the ultimate leader is a true teacher.
For me, Melissa, you hit it right on the head with this: "...we just strive to provide value."
By the way: you and your family are moving to a great place where you NEVER want to be called late for dinner: HOUSTON! :-)
I, for one, have often been called an expert and, while I sometimes enjoy it, I try not to relish in it or take it to heart because I want to continue to be real and continue to strive to be "better" always and never stop growing...
I can't help it...I have to say...call me whatever you feel fits ...just don't call me "late to dinner" :) hehe
ok so I think you guys are on to something quite interesting...I think at issue is not what we are called, as long as we are not calling ourselves these things. In truth, we all want to be careful not to overstate who we are so that we aren't perceived as stuck up or insensitive. In truth, we want to be acknowledged as experts/gurus or even sensei by others who work with us or under us or who learn from us rather than insisting we are those things...
We are mentors first. And, should we choose to share purposeful and meaningful information, then others may see us as experts or a guru or even as a sensei but, we just strive to provide value.
the beginning "goo" and "roo" and the ending "roo" could make it reasonable to assume that "goorooyarro" is related to "guru" but, at this hour, the closest I can get is that "the meaning of Yarroo is unknown".
So, we'd have to have something more definitive than what I was thus far able to find... (I found the nature reserve and the parrish but, no definition of "goorooyarroo"
Speaking of guru, I went to a small event on the weekend (I'm in Australia) and we went past the Goorooyarroo nature reserve and I wondered at the time if there were any Gurus there.
That is a great story.
Words are amazing things.
