"If a blind person leads a blind person,
        both will fall into a ditch."

In this case, those who are "blind" are those without "light". As described in the earlier verses, the light is the "clear light" of God. Jesus is advising everyone to find a teacher/guide who has realized the "light" (soul) and not just follow anyone who calls themselves a teacher.

"It is not possible for someone to enter
      the house of a strong person
       and take it by force unless
       he binds the owner’s hand

  Then he can steal from that house."



From a friend

Quote:
The hands are what we work with, so I interpret the hands as representing the "doer" or the "ego."

Strong person's house = energy body of person with strong ego

Tying his hands = subduing the ego

Loot his house = clearing the obstructions



One cannot clear another energy body until that person's ego has been subdued. A person subdues the ego themselves by surrendering. It seems one can aid that process with effective teaching.

Faith in God reflects that the necessities of life will be provided. If an expectation is not fulfilled means it was not a real necessity. Not understanding how Faith works in this matter may reflect a person’s true relationship with God.

           "Don't be fooled by appearances,
    neither when awake, nor when dreaming!
                    It's all symbolism."
