A lot of suffering and needless anguish is caused by fake spiritual teachers who lack basic human decency and empathy, who are prepared to hurt and cause outbursts of unpleasant emotion. All they serve to teach is that people are evil and will lie and twist in order to get some kind of kick. I don't understnad the kick that a lot of people talk about. Perhaps it's something to do with my mental health problems, but there's nothing cool about being smarter, or knowing something and holding it back, or even just assuming spiritual dominance over someone. I feel cool when I'm earning money for myself and eating well.
Percpetions make huge differences to what we can do, what we feel comfortable doing, and what we find morally acceptable. Many spiritual teachers lack basic understanding of this, and will hurt people's feelings in the name of teaching. Hey teacher, leave those kids alone. Hey spiritual man, stop laughing at others who don't have as much self love as you have. It's hard to love ourselves, anyone with a conscience will tell you that self love is one of the most difficult things to have. The only right way to spiritually teach is to promote self love and self compassion, and to stop twisting perceptions of abuse and theft, perceptions of belittling and a bullying attitude, and start being gentle, kind, and understanding.
