When one’s consciousness is externalized, ensnared in the belief of the existence of the personal identity, you’re trapped on the wheel of birth and death and experience endless cyclic change due to the laws of karma. Your karmic load is increased with every breath.
The Guru’s grace awakens the kundalini and begins the all-important process of the unraveling of the karma. Without the Guru’s grace, you would never be able to unravel the karma fast enough. In this time and place, the way reality is put together, even those beings that are enlightened at birth need the protection of the Guru to ensure their successful unfoldment.
The Guru clears the karma, and intensifies and focuses the pathway; this brings about the most dramatic unfoldment and resolution of fate and destiny.
