When the pupil is ready

When the pupil is ready, the Teacher appears. Don't think that this precept means that some Teacher in the physical, some Master will come to you and give you some magical personal power. In reality, the Teacher who appears is just the thing that can teach us to take the next step. Sometimes, it is a friend quite as ordinary as ourselves; another time it is a book, another an incident in our lives. But it is always just the thing which teaches us to take the next step.
