    Within the narrative of the fictional Transformers universe, a spark, also called an AllSpark, is usually the "soul" of a Transformer. In the Beast Machines television series, it was also a term used for the Transformers' afterlife. In the Transformers 2007 live action film, it is a cube-shaped artifact adorned with glyphs and designs which is capable of granting independent life to normal electronic and mechanical objects and is the source of life for all Transformers. In the Transformers Animated series, it shares a similar history and capabilities with its 2007 film counterpart, but resembles the Autobot Matrix of Leadership. Usually, the Allspark is the main source of Energon, the "life-blood" of the Transformers race and "blood" of Primus. Energon is usually stored in devices caled Energon cubes. These devices are used by characters in the series, usually by the Decepticons, the main antagonists of the series. In the "Shattered Glass" universe, where the Decepticons are good and the Autobots are evil, the Transformers possess "embers" instead of sparks.

    The word "GURU" stands for Philosophical and Spiritual Guide. Interestingly, in its spelling (GURU) is embedded the hidden message "Gee, you are you", i. e. the knowledge and guidance is with no one else but you. You are truly the part of the same Supreme Power that created you. Hence the knowledge and guidance that you are seeking from outside is really within you, in your deep inner mind where lies that divine spark of intelligence from the Supreme Power. Really and truly, you are the best guide, the best spiritual leader that you can find for yourself. Seek within, and believe in yourself - always! The path of illumination always begins at this very juncture of Self-realization, and recognition of the Supreme Power within.
