Dangers of being around Enlightened Master

The biggest one is that not a single fear or incompetency of yours will stay untouched. You will need to clean all the mess and learn all that you are teaching your children to do. 
Every time I say that I am not good at something I end up doing exactly the thing that  I was trying to avoid. 
To give you an example,  I really never liked Math.  Maybe I did not spend enough hours practicing it but I was always convinced that it is not my subject and there was no way i would ever understand it.  When my son was little I gave the task of helping him with Math to my husband and when it did not work out I found different Math programs (although he just got his Bachelor with majoring in Math and minoring in Physics).  Anyway, now my daughter is in six grade and I am still avoiding her math homework.  
I was speaking to a friend of mine who is a full time volunteer in the ashram now.  She is putting different amazing programs together.  The plan is to create a website with a lot of lesson plans so teachers and parents can follow and kids can learn different aspects of blissful functioning (including Vedic Math !).  I wrote myself down for volunteering and teaching the program but when I saw Math on the curriculum I told her that I have strong doubts that I was a  good fit.  She laughed and said that I just do not understand but because I am an artist it would be very easy for me.  I want to repeat the words: "It will be easy for you because you are an artist". .. Fascinating approach.  I wish all these programs would be available in our public schools.
