When a teacher shares his or her knowledge and each student knows how to retrieve from the whole the part that he or she needs, then this information migrates to the territory of experience. This kind of teaching urges disciples to investigate their possible "candles." The teacher's flame does not light a single, particular candle but is offered to the students so that they may kindle whatever they need to. Such a teacher recognizes that the hidden world manufactures candles, and that just as fire can light them, so can it outshine them.
