For this interaction assignment I am commenting on post June 5, 2016 and Sebai Maa’s response (post #6875).

What impressed me most about the interaction was the point highlighted that “a spiritual teacher can only help an aspirant to the level which they are ready to be helped”. This suggests to me that the effectiveness of a spiritual teacher is, in part, based on the readiness and receptivity of the student and where they are at in their stage of development.

I was also impressed by Sebai Maa’s point about HUMILITY and how important it is in “disarming the ego’s capacity to assert its vanity and illusionary value over the soul. Humility allows one to scrutinize oneself and see one’s shortcomings and egoistic tendencies and thus deal with them”. This resonates with me highly as an ideal that I strive
