Become Self-centered

Such a person, a person who is making spiritual progress, does not use his communication, his emotion, his thought for fulfilling one's desires selfishly. He may use his power of control over others for their benefit, and not for his own benefit.  A teacher who begins to use his power over his students for his own benefit, so that they would adore him, adore her, admire, do this, do that, is no teacher at all.  As one grows spiritually, without others knowing why or how, he becomes more charming.  And, he does not use that charm for personal gain.  So that the life, day and night, through wakefulness, through dream, through sleep, through meditation, his life becomes "other-centered" because it has become truly "Self-centered.
