Re: Theos-World Barking up the wrong tree, as usual

So you are saying that World Teachers are known by their actions rather than their words?  If this is the case one could argue that Gandhi and Mother Theresa were world teachers.

I suppose one can walk with world teachers or one can walk behind them.   A spiritual evolved soul is probably on the way to being his/her own world teacher.
