Excellences (faza-il) motivate us to do good deeds while technicalities (masa-il) make the journey comfortable. These things are told by the Elders. That is why people go to the Masha-ikh. Nowadays people have started saying that there is no need to visit the Elders. This is regretful. These people will be themselves deprived and will deprive others by their words. The way you have experts about various technical things you have experts about spiritual things. You have experts who help in self correction. If you leave this world without self correction then there is the danger of being caught.
