Does a magnet make an effort to draw the iron? there is a natural attraction according to the affinity of the iron and the power of the magnet. Of course, the iron must be near enough to the magnet to be drawn. So is the relationship between guru and disciple. it is a question of the recipiency of the disciple and the spiritual power of the preceptor to inspire and draw him to God.

“…shallow seekers in contact with lesser teachings…”

Jesus said, “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him.” (John 6:44). The omniscient God brings shallow seekers in contact with lesser teachings and spiritual books; from these they derive some benefit commensurate with their degree of spiritual desire and understanding. But deep seekers of God are brought by Him into contact with fully realized gurus who are able to commune with God and to serve as channels in imparting divine guidance. It is their duty to introduce the devotee to God. So, it is ultimately God who brings together guru and disciple, but there is also a desire on their part to come together. Through earnest spiritual longing, the disciple, perhaps unconsciously at first, seeks the guru—one who can lead him to God. And the true guru, when he intuitively knows a disciple sent by God, makes an effort to draw him, and goes out of his way to help him. The true disciple, finding a true guru, becomes magnetically attracted to him and recognizes him as the one sent by god. This is the law.
