You are correct. Many of these writings are tailored towards the seeker who is ripe for the loneliest and most intense path. It is in complete internal aloneness that one comes in contact with the grace that annihilates the conceptual self that masquerades as your first name. These are the ones who become teachers by default, just as a light illuminates the things around it by its very existence. Not because it intends to become a light, but because that is its nature. Therefore, shines forth without effort and is self illuminating.
This teaching is described as “a prayer for death.” There must be a death of the preconceived, a death of the accumulation of all one knows. Which then allows for the full spectrum of potential action without ideas of right and wrong, should and should not, oneness or separation. It is only in this state that a teacher is poised to deliver a custom tailored response to the Living Moment, and meets It as Such.
When teachers talk about just being, or having complete allowance etc., that is directed towards a specific person on a specific part in their specific journey. This may not be the appropriate response for other spiritual seekers. Or appropriate for a homeless person who looks you in the eyes with sheer desperation and asks for something to eat. Or a wife who finds out that she has cancer. At the same time, such a response can not be ruled out either.
When there is no center where thoughts gather to form a persona, then one is allowed access to whatever the moment demands spontaneously and without effort. Sometimes it’s a hug, a sandwich, silence, a stern warning, an intense gaze, a casual conversation, a punch in the face, a gentle rub on the back, an intense conversation, just listening, or getting together and playing some hand-drums. That is the beauty of Life: That nothing is outside of It.
