An important aspect of learning spiritual knowledge is service to others. Intellectual understanding is not enough. You need to be aware of that the experience of knowledge by those who have not reached your level. Intellectual knowledge can appear as arrogance otherwise.
Knowing when and how you express spiritual knowledge to others comes through service and between teacher and student. There are many kinds of students, their ability to comprehend, speed of learning, and any obstacles to learning. A step up in knowledge brings all kinds of issues; emotional, relationship, financial, in all areas of life.
Service as enrichment
Service brings enrichment to your life and to the lives of your students. You also have to know when to keep quiet – there are times when introducing new knowledge is dangerous. Only experience, which means you are bound to make mistakes, will allow you to know when and how much you can bring out new knowledge.
Dissemination of spiritual knowledge continues at the level of silence, and you need patience. When the consciousness of the student becomes aware that of the new knowledge, but that does not mean that he knows how to get that knowledge. There are times when teacher suffers in silence while he waits for the students to have the awareness and confidence to start action. I know – I have been there. The service of the student to the teacher is reversed! Ultimate service is when the teacher is in allowance of the abilities and short-comings of the students. If ever there was tough love, this is it!
There are many levels of silence. It is only through service that awareness grows of other levels of silence which reveals other levels of knowledge.
