"Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice." John 18:37

1. Suppose in the past I have had a "Guru" who nevertheless commits adultery and fornication (and acts of violence, theft etc.) but who has made sincere efforts to help me. Should his or her words be forgotten, or rather trusted and obeyed under the pretext of learning even from an evil person who is not wholly evil? Is there any hope of converting a person like this, who is liable to take advantage of me at any moment?

Would it be prudent just to move on and remember this person's immoral actions as an example of exactly what not to do?

2. What about a Guru in the physical world who does not fornicate and commit adultery and who knows the great Arcanum, but whose instructions do not seem relevant or helpful to one's life as it is at the present time?

In other words, how to use one's discretion in taking advice? Whose and which instructions to follow?

You will know a person by the fruits of their actions. Words have no value. Actions do.

As well:

"...in this day and age, it is very dangerous to just simply follow someone. What is best is to seek the Inner Master... we advise our disciples not to follow anyone. Let our disciples follow their own Self. Each of our disciples has to follow their resplendent and luminous Inner Being. Each one has to adore their own “I Am.” We beg, beseech, our disciples not to follow us. We do not want henchmen or followers. We have written this book so that you, our friends, listen to your own Internal Master, your resplendent “I AM.” The Innermost is your Master: follow Him."
