About seaching for a teacher, Francis Lucille, from my point of view, says something worth concider;
"Stick to the best available teaching. If you are seeking water, it is better to keep digging at the spot which seems the most suitable rather than to dig shallow little holes everywhere. We should find the teacher whose teaching we feel to be the best according to our heart and intelligence, and follow him/her for as long as we feel that way. We should choose our teacher for this reason alone, not for convenience such as proximity, access, gender, tradition, etc… We should honor the Truth buy seeking the best teacher. We cannot buy the Truth on sale."
