We are all different. We are all on our own individual path to our own awareness. One way for one another way for someone else. There is no one way. D.

Wonderful then.

Loving kindness: it decreases our self-grasping and the mind becomes naturally expansive. If you have loving kindness, you have understood the essence of the Dharma.

So, it is important to practice with devotion to the teacher. It is also important to make practice a habit. You should practice
at all times
by working with emotions.

Oh, Mother of the three times’ buddhas
who loves all sentient beings as a mother loves her child:
may I become free from the iron shackles of self-grasping and may my activities that benefit beings equal yours.

May the prayers of faithful disciples be fulfilled.

The mind of the guru is a union of emptiness and compassion. These are the qualities of the Buddha's mind, and their union is the ultimate quality of the guru's mind. The Buddhas and gurus act to liberate the minds of sentient beings, and since we rely on a guru with such qualities, we should see our guru as the actual Buddha. We have the potential to attain enlightenment because we also possess Buddha-nature, and so, contemplating in this way, we (initially) cultivated fabricated devotion.
In order to destroy self grasping, we have to rely on the instructions of the guru. Hence, we must first establish a connection to the guru. If you understand that karma is within your own mind, then you know that unless you let go of self-grasping, you will never be liberated from samsara. This we do through understanding that our minds are exactly the same as the guru's mind. Then, we establish a connection of love and compassion, and then a connection with the Ultimate Truth of emptiness. Through the union of emptiness and compassion, we can destroy self grasping and merge our minds with space, relying on the instructions that we have received from the guru. -The All Pervasive Lamp of Wisdom: A Commentary on The Three Statement of Dzogchen by H.E Garchen Rinpoche.

Progress in your practice depends on devotion. With great devotion, there will be great progress. If you see your teacher as enlightened, you will receive the blessings of an enlightened being. If you see him or her as an ordinary being, you will get the blessing of an ordinary being.

"To me in this world there are only two types of beings: my benefactors of love and my benefactors of patience. The majority is my benefactors of love; they are very kind and help me. Some try to cause harm and create obstacles; these are my benefactors of patience.
The kindness of each benefactor is equal, and thus my love for them is equal. Maybe my benefactors of patience are even kinder to me, as they allow me to practice the perfection of patience. I am thus very grateful to all those who do not like me and make me tame my anger. At the same time, I feel great compassion for their sorrow, but as they allow me to practice patience and my anger and jealousy to gradually diminish, they are my teachers.
Thus, in the end, when I attain enlightenment and all my anger and jealousy are no more, it is due to their kindness. For this reason, I love them greatly."
