How do you realise that THIS is the teacher you've been waiting for?

Hi - Bob here - Actually, I think that a "true teacher" does "give
paths, techniques or methods on how to live or how to find Truth."
Ramana directed us to ask "Who Am I", Ganga shares breath and
awareness techniques. Papajeff also. Even Judi ridiculing "seeking" is
pointing to how to find Truth. Swami Sivananda only met his Guru
physically for a few minutes, but stated many times that he kept him
closer than his heart. Through Grace alone, the veil of illusion is
ripped asunder, and the infinite, eternal divine reality presents
itself. The classic spiritual understanding is that when you need a
teacher, the universe will present one to you. Until then, perhaps the
best we can do is to follow the suggestion that Swami Sivananda
gives..."Be good, do good".
Peace and blessings,

repairman comes and replaces the broken part, and the picture gets
sharp? You then can say that this repairman or woman is real. Well,
similarly, when you realize your enlightenment, and the picture clears
up, you'll recognize that this or that person was your teacher. For
now, don't worry a bit about it. When you are ready, they will come.
Peace and blessings,
