I would agree that whole-hearted and total commitment are required, though
they don't necessarily come all at once; I think you work up to them.

Perhaps the trick is in realizing that there ultimately is only one Master -
the inner teacher-essence - beyond individual names. Then you find it coming
out at you from virtually every pore of reality. Or from within - the
distinction blurs.

So have we transformed "Unity in Diversity" into "Monogamy in Polygamy"?

Better be careful!  As always.  :-)
