The boundaries between a teacher & student can get blurry but
|since you can hardly swing a cat without hitting someone who well educated in the Dharma, I think you should just leave & find yourself another teacher. Like yesterday.|
It not about giving him another chance. It's that a teacher with your best interests at heart would want you to try another teacher unless he was snared by his own intentions.
If this arousal disappears with a new teacher then you can just continue on without such a confusing complication to a beginning practise.
If it arises in the same way for a new teacher then either you are choosing similar types of teachers or this arousal is actually about you. Either way, choosing a new teacher will provide you with very useful info to move forward with.
