“New paradigm spiritual teachers claim no authority over others. They do not pretend to have the answers for others. They speak only of their own experience. They invite others to share in what they have learned from their experience, and to draw whatever conclusions they will. They do not take responsibility for what others choose to see. They do not preach. They do not try to fix. They simply accept others as they are and encourage others to find their own truth.
They empower. They see the light in others and encourage it. They don’t close their eyes to the darkness, but they know it is ultimately of no significance. When love is present, the darkness dissolves into light. They do not deny the darkness or do battle against it. They know there is nothing wrong, no evil to oppose, no battles to fight. They just gently encourage the light. They know the light itself will heal all wounds.”
Paul Ferrini, in “The Silence of the Heart”
