This question is only relevant depending on your answer to another question: Do we resign ourselves to the idea once we find a solution we don't need to continue improving it?
I wrote that question to be ambiguous because in my mind it has applications to relationships, life, reality creation, and everything in between.
Often I observe that when people are given what they view as a 'solution' or an 'answer', they no longer seek to find further validity in it and resign themselves to the idea "this is how it is meant to be done, there's nothing more to see here." This is why I always encourage others to take the standpoint that we are all students, and anything we learn is subject to adaption.
Though I feel this is one of the most important things I can teach anyone it doesn't always come across, and people will take instruction and then follow it to the T leaving no room for improvement or adjusting it to fit one's self more comfortably. It seems that 'just saying it' isn't always enough. Is this my fault as the instructor by coming across as an 'authority' that is not meant to be questioned?

Snow I think that this is a very important question for teachers/uplifters. We want our students to learn. We want our students to take our information and live a better life. We want them to grow so we can feel fulfilled and happy. It's our heart's desire to teach. Do you agree?
What I learned is that the biggest mistake a teacher can make is when he wants his student to
But each person is different. Each person feels differently. Each person thinks differently. Each person is in a different vibrational state.
You may have the talent to learn constantly and seek further validity in everything. But not everyone is like you.
Some like to learn concepts only. Some like to learn "how to's" only. Some like to know one piece of the puzzle only. Some like to know cause and effects of everything.
We must respect that. Otherwise we shoot ourselves in the foot.
You might know the ultimate solution to something. But if you tell someone everything that you know, he might get bored. If you expect everyone to be a self learner, you might expect too much.
So sometimes it is just better to offer just one piece of a puzzle that the students wants to know. If he wants to know more afterwards, he will come back to you, guaranteed. So I think that it is better to relax and don't bother about teaching everything to everyone.
Just offer one piece that the student is ready to hear.
Teach what your student thinks is important, not what you think is necessary!!!!!!!!!
