I am not sure how anyone, can know if anyone else in "on the Path" even
if one knows the person however intimately. Is it possible that even a
person who is "on the Path" -- however it may be defined, not consciously
know that he/she is on the Path. Also one could be deluded that one is on
the Path.

If a person belives (or knows for himself or herself) that he/she is on
the Path, I am not going to argue. Each person has their own right to
believe or know that they know. But when it comes to question of trying
to determine someone is on the path, I think there are very practical

I for myself do not know if I am on the Path or not. Personally, it does
not matter to me as I did not join the TS looking for personal spiritual

My 2-1/4 cents worth ( 2 cents adjusted for inflation!).

    Peace to all living beings.
