A Kundalini Yoga Teacher is the one whom the pair of opposite does not affect. To the ugliest and to the most beautiful, she only gives blessings.
Deliver the student to the infinite, not you. Elevate the student to the awareness of the infinite within them. Connect the student to the flow of the teachings in Kundalini yoga. That will always stay with them and support them. A teacher who abuses his or her power will practice yoga teacher karma as an insect according to Yogi Bhajan. Good to know!
Once you are the representative of the students higher consciousness, never betray that projection. If you do, it is equivalent to a self limiting karma that will give you a teacher who will limit or miss lead you. A teacher who wrongly limits or holds back a student will be reincarnated as a cockroach according to Yogi Bhajan. Be like the spirit: steady, timeless, graceful, and trustworthy.
Serving the Consciousness of the Student
Do not mean to direct or control a person. It is to serve his consciousness. You are not a teacher if you discriminate for any reason. Just standby you’re right teaching, and allow the student to stand by his wrong, and communicate.
The keyword here is selfless. Instead of holding your high ground, reach out and offer your hand. Speak and connect at the frequency of the student.
People are in pain, and they need for the pain alleviated. They need to know that you can see that pain. If a person is hungry first feed them. To a starving person food is God. Once they are satisfied and a little secure they can consider the possibility that God is food!
The ability to apply Krishna/Christ Consciousness will make you a good teacher.
