Another interesting thing* is how present their "presence' can be anywhere, anytime. As others have said perhaps better, teachers act out the infinity that one is. Giving a series of dimensional "snapshots" of the dimensionless.** Giving one a more dimenioneless view of their own Oneness.*** For me, the power and clarity of these encapsulated expressions of the infinite -- "reconstituted" anywhere/anytime -- can vary by teacher.** Some simple are "here" for as long as I care to accept it *While having yardsticks to measure others enlightenment is not my cup of tea, in that labeling infinities with finite terms such as "enlightenment" seems odd to me, and measuring the infinite with finite "yardsticks, that is "how much infinities", seems amusing. **Which may be either my own limitations, or simply having a greater propensity towards a cert ain "structure". MMY said any teacher is always available via "like a golden thread" and it was ALL in the "seeker" -- to make the connection -- the teacher did nothing. (Which is not "MMY SAYS" but an observation of a particualr POV.) ***I find that this can be via spiritual art also, yantras and dance -- though perhaps in a less intense form. And these envapsulated "structures" of bliss and knowledge are analogous to quantum packets. They have a structure, but are also formless.
