I came across this web page: Spiritual Business
The author is supposed to be an enlightened being according to himself. He comes up a rule for spiritual business:
"An excellent test to see if the spiritual group you belong to is a spiritual business or not is: if fees are charged or any money is accepted as a donation, then that group is a spiritual business. There are no exceptions to this rule."
Under this rule, Adyashanti and Eckhart Tolle are well qualified for being spiritual business men instead of truely enlightened teachers.

and..what may i ask caet,is money?is it not energy?
when we go to a spiritual businessman for an issue.he expends /uses his energy in helping you and you give him back energy in the form of money.
so youre even.
no one owes anyone anything.no obligations.no nothing.quits.
im personally wary of people who don charge anything.its like -whats the catch why do you want me to be obliged to you?why the favor?what do i owe you now?are you trying to control me?
so id rather pay up.and be paid.

How important is it seriouslly a true spiritual seeker won't take anything for granted. Truth is yours to be found.
Most of the so called teachers, that I came across to don't really emphasize on them being Enlightened. They will acctualy tell you not to belive them.
From my point of view, the best thing I can do is listen, if something clicks, fine. If not I will look elswhere. As far as I am concerned, every person I meet, can be my spiritual teacher, if I am willing to look.
As for the money part, I don't belive there is anything wrong with it as long as it doesn't become an atachment. And since I am not Enlightened, I Could be wrong myself.
