Many people wonder whether it is good to have a teacher on their spiritual paths. Most things have two sides and on this one also it depends on if it is a good choice.
It is good to keep in mind that a spiritual teacher was once on your side only a little further than you. This is because they know the roadblocks and pitfalls and should help in having the path less painful and easier.
You can reflect on an issue in a different perspective with the assistance of a teacher. On the first episode of a spiritual path, there is a lot of honesty that is does not come easy at this stage. One of our companions is denial and we are known to be afraid of pain though we are doing it without our knowledge. Therefore a teacher is more responsive and is able to scrutinize the egoic and mental approaches that we are keen to justify as well as defend.
From the safe and supportive atmosphere that is prepared by a spiritual teacher offers one is able to open up in the mind and heart. A professional spiritual teacher does not apply anything that has been previously used against a person which can hurt them, and does not use information to manipulate with information. The discussion you have your doctor is the same as you have with your spiritual teacher which is treated with full confidence.
Take care not to rely on the spiritual teacher to an extent that you feel left alone if he is not with you. You can be seen as self inadequate. Once the spiritual teacher lets you go you should follow the saying that goes you should enter an open door alone after the teacher opens it.
