As far as the conditioned soul is concerned, there is no wonder that he has some sinful activities in his past life, this should be admitted and confessed before the Lord. As soon as this is done, the Lord excuses the sincere devotee. But that does not mean that one should take advantage of the Lord's causeless mercy and expect to be excused over and over again while he commits the same sinful activities. – The Nectar of Devotion, Page 81.
The disciple and spiritual master are never separated because the spiritual master always keeps company with the disciple as long as the disciple follows strictly the instructions of the spiritual master. This is called the association of vani (words).
Srimad Bhagavatam 4.28.47,
The Lord is like the sun, which illuminates everything and cannot be illuminated by anyone.
Srimad Bhagavatam 8.3.10,
The mind is not to be killed. Mind or desire cannot be stopped, but to develop a desire to function for spiritual realization, the quality of engagement by the mind has to be changed. The mind is the pivot of the active sense organs, and as susch if the quality of thinking, feeling and willing is changed, naturally the quality of actions by the instrumental senses will also change. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 02.01.17.
