One thing I've learnt in my spiritual journey is that years in a spiritual movement is not the sole measure of spiritual accomplishment. That doesn't mean we shouldn't respect those who have been practicing for many years. In reality, however, it’s not the number of years in your life, it's the amount of life in those years. So, we shouldn’t have an unrealistic or utopian vision of spiritual practitioners who may perceive as falling short of the ideals.

Crystal clear Maharaj...your purity,your kindness,.... is your
Strength to inspire the fallen fortunate souls
Beauty shames the ugly. Bright shames the dimwit. Strength shames the weak. Death shames the living - and the ideal shames us all.
Taking inventory of how far we have come takes off the 'self-judgement' burden that weighs us down while marching towards the ideal.
Practise makes perfect
