The ancient teachings tell us that the fundamental problem is desire for objects. Do you agree?
It is not objects as such that we desire, but an envisioned outcome from relationship with them. At its root, that outcome is the experience of Satchitananda, the contentment of Being Consciousness. However, the wrong tool can never produce the right outcome just as you can’t hear a sunset.
If you were to sum up everything you’ve understood in a few sentences, what would it be?
See what you are; be what you are. No effort is required to be what you are. Effort is required only to sustain what you aren’t.
It is important to me to know whether or not you are my Master and whether satsang is right for me.
When there is no ‘me’, questions regarding masters will be unimportant.
Any satsang has never been your relationship with the teacher. It is your relationship with the teaching and is evidenced by how you live the teaching.
In it, there is no submission to the teacher, only submission to the teaching. It’s an attitude wherein your life is lived in service to That.

Give consideration to these words. Accept and live them, reject them, or investigate their validity. These are the options I present to you.
What do you expect of me?
I expect you to fan the spark that has been given until such a raging inferno arises, an inferno that consumes everything you have brought here including yourself.
What can expect to happen if I follow your advice?
I can’t tell you what to expect. I can only advise that you do nothing deliberately. It’s entirely outside of your control and influence. Whatever happens, comes from within, unexpectedly.
