I spoke yesterday on both an IG and FB live about mentors, meditation and corporate yogis. Every Monday I give a lecture and upload it to my FB pages, YouTube and Patreon account. Feel free to DM me for links, or google Rajan Shankara for everything.
Mentors are role models. Tradition used to have them in our lives and now it rarely does. Our parents take the first role as figures of wisdom, maybe, and then the extended family expands our tribe, helping raise us through the challenges and pains of being alive. But we've lost all that, especially in the west.
Now role models, wise figures of culture and mentors are few and far between. Maybe they are the celebrity speakers like @jayshetty or @jordanpeterson. Or maybe pop culture icons have filled the void and young people are guessing that since they are on TV they know what the hell they're doing.
If parents don't step up and become role models for their children someone else will, and you have to endure the consequences of that. Young girls without a father, meaning young girls who are never anyone's little princess, will grow up looking to fill that void with lust and licentiousness...men too.
If you can, find a mentor, find a role model that teaches wisdom and the art of living well and you will do much for yourself. You are your future son's first leader, or your future daughter's mother.
One day someone will look up to you, and if you are still discovering who you are and what you're all about then they will look elsewhere for love, wisdom, trust and connection. Don't step on the path just for yourself, step on the path for everyone else yet to come.
