Q: Why is keeping the company of the wise important ?

A: Keeping the company of the wise is very important for multiple reasons.
You can learn more about the teachings from an hour conversation with a sage than from what you have learned theoretically through several books. Wise people, sages, saints, enlightened personalities having already become one with the Divine, they have that experience of what it is and feels like to commune with the Divine, so they can easily remove or correct the wrong ideas or concepts you got from reading a book or listening to people who are not yet Enlighted, and lead you along the path of Truth.

Enlightened people have also a positive and strong liquor of MAAT surrounding them, which can influence or alter the electromagnetic field around them, people, places etc. So, Khnumt Nefer can also raise your vibration due to the right understanding of the teachings you get from the sage. Your vibration and your understanding can gradually go from ignorance to glimpse of Truth (kind of intellectual) until it becomes intuitional and Nehast is attained.

Q: How should a spiritual aspirant think about good association and what actions should they take to insure they will receive and benefit from it?

A: Personally, as a spiritual aspirant, good association is a wonderful opportunity to speak freely so that the sages, saints can gauge your level of understanding of the teachings and correct if necessary.

And for that to be beneficial, the spiritual aspirant should not think that the Sebai is targeting him personally but instead that it is the unrighteousness or the untruth that is been corrected. And also, do not try to speak or answer in order to please the sage otherwise the erroneous concepts can still be buried deep down in the unconscious mind while in the conscious mind you are fooling yourself, do not be afraid to speak your current understanding and spill your ignorance so that it can be corrected. And finally, when corrected by the Sage, sometimes the wisdom is deep it burns instantly the wrong conceptions and ignorance, if not you should reflect, feel it and meditate on the new understanding so that new impressions can balance the old ones until they are suppressed or cleared.

It will also help to try and emulate the sages, not in a fanatical way without understanding what you are doing. But knowing that an Enlightened being has already experienced Nehast, so by thinking, doing and feeling like him or her with the understanding that you are not trying to be his person or personality but you are trying to reproduce the inner state that he or she has reached which is the closest a non enlightened person can see from a time and space perspective. Be humble to look up to a sage, it is not a problem as long as you avoid fanaticism, once he or she has showed you the way of becoming like them like “God” you can be on your own.

Q: When can you as the aspirant choose those disciplines which suit the personality?

A: Once you learn the correct methods of spiritual discipline.
In the beginning you can start with the shedy discipline that is more natural and easier to practice for you.
But as you go, it is better for a balanced spiritual evolution to make an effort to practice all the 4 shedy disciplines (rech-ab, uashu, maat, uaa) in an integral manner in order to cover the 4 aspects of the personality (intellect, emotions, actions and will).
