Found this great piece on fake spiritual teachers vs true spiritual teachers. Enjoy!
* For a long time I've noticed there are alot of psychological manipulators who claim to be spiritual teachers.... * They know how to build rapport, how to anchor certain emotions in you...and more...so beware...and use your own intuition to weed out the fakes from the reals.... * A true teacher will never claim to be a teacher..... * A true teacher is not looking for followers.... * A true teacher will encourage you to find your own path instead of following the herd or him/her.... * A true teacher just IS.... A true teacher does not boast overly. * A true teacher considers himself/herself a normal average person just like everybody else.... Not being higher because of the knowledge or experience possessed.. * A true teacher is a student who learns from everyone (the ignorant and the enlightened) * A true teacher is very humble... but not a pushover... * A true teacher is a powerful listener and master observer.... * A true teacher is not afraid to shock others....and does not care what others think about him/her.. * A true teacher is not jealous of others... * A true teacher will speak their truth with no remorse (sometimes comes across as being unloving but it is far from so)... * BLESS I hope you enjoyed! I'm grateful that you've had the opportunity to see this. Enjoy! d_redant Mystical Wonders (TM)
