Can A Student Become A Friend Of The Teacher?

laitman_528_04Question: What must a person or a group do for a student to become a friend of the teacher?

Answer: Everything happens gradually, as people rise, and they begin to appreciate the spiritual work and understand that they are not ready to do anything themselves.

They get rid of illusions and begin to better understand what spiritual elevation is. After all, spiritual ascent is not achieved through egoistic actions or efforts; you can’t elbow your way in.

On the contrary, the only possibility for advancement is to step on ourselves a bit, to get closer to others, and in this harmonious relationship, to try to find the place where the Creator is revealed. This place comes from the mutual integration of my properties with other people’s properties as a result of this interconnection.

The entire process happens gradually, and one who is studying with us will come to this.

Question: Is there a situation in which students can become friends with the teacher?

Answer: The concept of a student-friend or teacher-friend exists, but nowadays, this is rather vague. They generally say this when a teacher studies one-on-one with a student.

In general, this is certainly possible, even with many students, but not yet at our current level.
