Your comment is on target.
Anyone who is sensitized to truth and justice and has the welfare of
humanity at the back of their thinking and action, whether a formal chela
or not, is IMHO, likely to be more perceptive and thus is likely to see
opportunities to help. Krishnamurti describes this as being "responsible".

In the physical world, everyone is likely to make mistakes. It is said that
even Lord Buddha made some mistakes and it was left to Shri Shankaracharya
to set them right.
