Co-dependency upon a spiritual teacher

TOPICS: Any tool given can be misused by the ego - true gurus seek to help you avoid co-dependency - using the outer guru as a tool for contacting the inner guru -

Question: I came across a channeling where the channeled entity says that students should not enter into a guru/chela relationship because of the chela’s dependency on the guru. What is your comment on that?

 

Answer from ascended master Jesus through Kim Michaels:


Concerning the idea that people should not enter into a guru/chela relationship, there is some validity to the idea that this can cause certain students to become co-dependent upon the guru. In the physical octave, everything is a two-edged sword. The Bible is given to people as a means to their spiritual progress. Yet millions of people cling to a specific interpretation of the Bible and therefore abort or slow down their growth. It is an inescapable fact of life that the tools, which the ascended masters give as a means to people’s liberation, have the potential to become a blind alley that cause people to become stuck at a certain level instead of taking the next step on the path.

Many students develop dependency upon a guru. This is never productive. However, if the student has a true guru, the guru will always seek to help the student overcome this dependency. Therefore, I disagree with the general statement that one should never enter into a guru/chela relationship. The fact that a tool can be misused does not mean that one should abandon the tool. 

 

Imagine that a helicopter has come to rescue you. The helicopter has landed on the roof of a nearby building. However, to get to the roof, you have to climb the stairs. While it is true that you should not become co-dependent upon the stairs, it is equally true that if you do not climb the stairs, you cannot make it to the roof. The guru/chela relationship is indeed a viable way to attain swift spiritual growth, and for many people it will be extremely difficult to attain that growth without an inner or an outer guru.

The key to overcoming the problem of dependency is to realize that the outer guru is simply a tool for helping you attain conscious contact with the inner guru, namely your Christ self.

Reminder about Estonian conference 2018

2018-10-28

In about a month, we are having a conference in Estonia, and I expect it to be building on the very profound and useful teachings we got last year about the primal self.

 

The topic is how you can come to feel at peace with being on earth, and I think all spiritually interested people have issues with being on such a dense and difficult planet. I am sure the mastes will have profound dictations to give us and that we will have some very fruitful discussions.

 

There is still time for you to join us, and if you want to come, it will be helpful for the organizers if you can sign up as soon as possible so we can plan it in the best way. I look forward to seeing you there.
