When it is said that the readiness of the seeker determines the appearance of the master, this applies to the first fundamental initiation of his spiritual life. It does not mean that a master will come into his town and seek him out, but that he will come into his life. And this may be brought about in various ways--as by the seeker himself being led, either by worldly circumstances or by his own seeking, out of his own town to the town or country where the master is living.
