Answer: You don’t become like the teacher, you specifically develop in your own way and form. Externally, as a result of a shared connection, forms of speech and grammar or something similar like the teacher’s may appear in you, but this has no connection to spirituality. Everyone is unique in spirituality.
Question: Do you suppose that not being like your teacher is the right message?
Answer: It makes no difference. Even if a student thinks one way or another, the curve always leads a person to the “straight line.” Sooner or later the students will understand and everything will work out. I don’t give guidance about this. A student must gradually understand everything for himself.
