I'm not sure I know what you're talking about, but what do you do when
your mentor/guru/teacher ABANDONS you.  And has not left a successor
or sufficient teachings that one feels they can continue on that particular
path.  I've been there twice.  Once when the guru retired  to Hawaii and
wanted to have as little as possible to do with his disciples and the other
who decided a business money-making path was more important than
the church he headed.

Frankly, the only thing that has sustained me over the years is the
Alice Bailey material.  Seems these teachers have a tendency to
burn out somewhere along the way.
