"Sometimes when people see the so called Dharma teacher's slip is showing, they get discouraged. And they go looking for someone with no slip showing. Well that's okay, but, again it's usually pretty dangerous to think that so-and-so, not only has no slip showing, but doesn't even have one. That's how cool they are. This is usually dangerous, because then you are, so to speak (although you can't) giving up your own awakened mind and putting it on someone else. That may be a necessary stage, but at some point, the Dharma exemplar has to make sure that you stop that. That you take it back. Sometimes there's even a little ceremony for that."
