This question might make some people uncomfortable, but it's one I've been pondering on a lot. It's about the credibility of someone who claims to be a Master for those who can't figure it out in the internal worlds yet. I've seen critiques from people (which to me seem valid) about this certain person wearing expensive clothes, perfumes and gold jewelry and also not coming across as very humble. It is suspected that their income comes exclusively from donations. Would a true Master present themselves in this fashion instead of opting for modesty? Or is it legitimate to wonder if they have credibility?

"The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, "master, master." But be not ye called master: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ." —Matthew 23


Regrettably, our human “I” wants to appear everywhere. Our human “I” wants to be applauded and admired by everyone. The human “I” lets his hair and beard grow and wears strange clothes in order to appear publicly on the streets, so that the naive can call him master, elder brother, etc. Thereafter, like a harlot the human “I” publicly undresses in order to show off his powers, qualities, and lineage.
Yes, the human I’s “love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Master, Master” [Matthew 23: 6, 7].
The human “I” has no humility; he boasts about everything, he swaggers about everything, he shows off everything without any modesty whatsoever. The human “I” is an actor who works in order to be applauded and admired by others...
An authentic guru does not go around boasting about it. The authentic guru is the Inner Christ. A true master goes around everywhere anonymously and unknown. He does not exhibit his deeds or powers, and is filled with modesty. A true master is before anything else an upright citizen. The authentic master is never an intellectual, since the intellect is an animal function of the human “I.” The true master is like a child, pure, holy, simple, and natural. The true master is the Inner Christ “that is the true Light, which lightens every man that comes into the world” [John 1:9].- Samael Aun Weor, https://glorian.org/books/the-major-mysteries
