Spiritual World and spiritual authorities: what is the difference?

Most likely, not everyone understands the issue of spiritual authorities. Let me suggest to take the first step and look into this. Let’s supplement the table together...

 

SPIRITUAL WORLD

    |

“spiritual authorities”

   
It is one and open towards every human being.     | Each person has one’s own authorities. As a rule, such a pattern is imposed on the person since his or her childhood, starting with parents. There can be many authorities for one person.
 
Simplicity     | Complexity
 
 Unceasing communication     | A personal meeting is hardly probable or takes not more than 5-10 minutes.
 
It is always, every minute near, “closer than one’s carotid artery”.     | An authority may reside in another country or another city.
 
Never speaks at all. It can only be felt, and everything is clear in that deep inner feeling.     | Speaks incomprehensibly, often confusing one’s consciousness
 
Gracious and caring every minute     | Hardly takes care of anyone
   
All people are equal, there are no “favourites”.     | Somebody is closer to the leader, somebody is farther. Usually there is a multilevel hierarchy.
   

Only love and grace are felt.

    | No comments. As a rule, a state of ecstasy passes into a state of despondency. (The following thoughts arise, “He (they) are great and has (have) achieved much, but I won’t make it.”)
   
Every human being follows the way on one’s own.     | The way is regulated via the rules imposed by other people.
   
A person takes responsibility for oneself and one’s own evolution.     | A person is responsible towards the authority (authorities) for his or her every (or almost every) step. 
   
The spiritual way commits you to nothing in the earthly life. For all your deeds you are accountable to your conscience.     | A person automatically becomes “obliged” to other people because they (the authorities) undertake responsibility for the person’s spiritual evolution.
   
A person reveals oneself in love, if he or she really wants this.     | A person starts fearing erroneous actions and censure of other people, therefore he or she stints oneself in cognition of God and His love, seeing the “truth” in external manifestations. (“I do as the book says.”)
   
A person is happy, unworried, and fears nobody. He or she knows nobody can prevent him or her from reaching God.     | A person is unhappy because he or she is in illusions.
   
A person never imposes one’s opinion on other people, but only offers them to look inside themselves.     | A person falls into rage if someone disagrees with his or her opinion. He or she becomes a fanatic of other people’s ideas, sometimes even claiming those ideas as his or her own.
   
First and foremost, a person takes care of one’s own inner purity and never longs to “save” others.     | Sometimes a person feels oneself obliged to communicate the “truth” to other people.
   
God is the Truth     | An authority is a human being or a group of humans. Hence, in any case there can be no objectivity.
