What is the difference between God and Guru (preacher)?

God is like doctor. Guru is like compounder (Assistant to Doctor). Compounder gives the medicines as per the direction of the doctor. The compounder cannot analyze the case as affectively as the doctor does. Similarly Guru preaches whatever preached by God (SatGuru).

Just my opinion

True bhakti yoga leads to self. Meaning that by worshiping the God within we will eventually realize we are worshiping our "Self".

Jnana Yoga

Jnana Yoga means recognition of the Lord in human form in your human generation. Such recognition can be misled by several factors of ignorance. The real diamond is mixed with several artificial diamonds. To eliminate the real diamond from all the other artificial diamonds requires knowledge of the real diamond and also the knowledge of artificial diamonds (Jnana Yoga). Thus there are several fraud incarnations in this world and only one real human incarnation exists.

As the real diamond is recognized by its total multiple internal reflections of light in various angles, similarly the real incarnation is recognized by the various reflections of the internal knowledge in various angles. Such knowledge is called as Prajnanam, which is special to the Lord only and is not possible for others. The other scholars can have only the knowledge learnt from books, which is called as Jnanam. The refractive index of diamond is very high by which the real diamond is recognized. Similarly by the special knowledge (Prajnanam) the real human incarnation is recognized. By such special knowledge you will be liberated from all the worldly bonds and that is the salvation. Coming close to the Lord in human form is called Sayujyam and Kaivalyam. Thus you can attain both the benefits i.e., Moksha (Salvation) and also Sayujyam (Becoming close to the Lord) and Kaivalyam (becoming one with the Lord, which means that whatever you wish the Lord will have the same wish or vice versa).

You are close to the root of all fear.

And that very idea is the most frightening realization for many people. The source of all divine phenomenon and experience, is the observer himself.

The root of all fear is the belief in separation, not the realization of unicity.
