Spiritual Masters. - Know what to expect from them.
Your daily efforts to learn self-control, to be considerate of others, and to unite with God through prayer and meditation cost nothing – all this is free. But it is a long process, and as humans are both lazy and impatient to achieve success, they are immediately attracted by someone who promises them miraculous results, even if the price is high. But in this case they should not complain later for having been cheated. When you look for a spiritual master you must know what to expect of them: illusions or truth."
