HOW TO RECOGNIZE A REAL SPIRITUAL TEACHER — The Female Grail with Durga Holzhauser

HOW TO RECOGNIZE A REAL SPIRITUAL TEACHER

Let’s keep it short:

A real spiritual master creates masters.
Not followers.

He was a healer before.
He will heal you.
He is a realized teacher.
He nurtures and creates teachers.
He is a master.
He will make us masters of our lives.

:: to the feminine

A real spiritual feminine master creates feminine masters.
Not followers.

She was a healer before.
She will heal you.
She is a realized teacher.
She nurtures and creates teachers.
She is a master.
She will make us masters of our lives.

Back when I was a girl I was asked: What do you want to become when you grow up? I said: “I want to be enlightened.” I like the idea. As a revolutionary I like the idea of everybody being enlightened even more.

I do believe times have changed. These days we leave our monastic ashram robes behind and step into the world. It’s easy to withdraw from the mundane. But I do not believe in this as a final liberation. Instead, our destiny is to face life as our initiation path, as a pathway of Shiva (the creator and destroyer). Therein lies freedom.

Measure the masters and feminine masters
by your heart’s temperature.

I must admit I love them, the gurus, the realized teachers who mastered it. The ones enlightened enough to lift me up. I have met them. My heart knew I had to and I searched them out in places leftover from a long time ago. This world has become a melting pot of spiritual movements. My heart likes the real ones.

So I observe them and love them, and then I go back what is the real spiritual path for me.

I have my own personal dictionary of spiritual teachers.

: AVATAR (*my personal stars)
A God incarnation, reflecting one aspect of God or many. Their life force can put our souls into a new life, erase karma and heal with a word. Jesus is one, Babaji, and Sai Baba are others. Never try to analyze them, simply know them with your love. Their light has no limits. Their consciousness is all. They are not limited by time or space. Their teachings are beyond words. They change the destiny of humanity.

: MASTER
A soul who has mastered her Self. Her heaven and earth are melted and not separated. She knows: to understand God you must be a little bit of God yourself. They teach knowledge. Measure them by their devotion.

: SPIRITUAL TEACHER
One who has mastered a domain or an ability. They teach what they have mastered. Are they unlimited? No. But we can learn what they have learned. I love to learn from them what I do not know.

I believe we need more spiritual teachers for life. Followers tend to put their stars on stage to admire. And the sun may shine for a while. But I ask my stars to teach me how to shine myself. I want no imitation but inner wisdom.

You must measure yourself.

You are free to choose your spirituality.

At the Age of 24 I had my moment of enlightenment. It was two weeks of feeling like a bottle of pink champagne. I was beyond death and the love had me back home. God, I want that feeling everyday.

You know what effect it had my life?
I am hungry
to live.

I chant the Asato Ma Sadgamaya:

Om, Lead us from Unreality (of Transitory Existence) to the Reality (of Self),
Lead us from the Darkness (of Ignorance) to the Light (of Spiritual Knowledge),
Lead us from the Fear of Death to the Knowledge of Immortality.
Om Peace, Peace, Peace.

I read again and again:
The Autobiography of a Yogi
Daughter of Fire by Irina Tweedie

I pray:

This world needs spiritual leaders in every corner.
If you want to be a leader you need to be a healer first.
First heal your inner world, then heal your environment, then lead what you want to change.
Then come out and tell your sacred story.
