Real Teacher would never be too acceptable

The Real Teacher would never be too acceptable. He would not look like a pleasing fatherly figure because only that pleases you which allow you to continue as you. And the Teachers’ responsibility is to not to let you continue as you.
What is it that you find pleasurable? You find only that pleasurable, which is an extension, a continuation of your ways, of your ego. So, if you really like a teacher, you say, “Wow, nice one! I want to go to him”, it only proves that he is some kind of a plum cake for you, pleases your senses.

You like going to a shopping mall. You also like going to Satsangs. You are the same. The ‘liking’ too is coming from the same centre.
