Association with materialists or sages? - James Swartz - Yoga of Love, Vedanta, Bhakti Sutra Narada

Revision of verses 38-43. Vedanta is a method that the teacher applies to your mind. You are always aware. Elimination of nonessential factors. Bliss in deep sleep. Do you stop existing when you go to sleep? Something that you can never dismiss is real.
The scripture is never wrong. The problem is in my understanding. Consequences of association with negative people.
Verse 44: Association with materialists causes anger, confusion, forgetfulness, loss of intelligence and total spiritual calamity. Verse 45: Rising like waves from association with objects, these bad effects amass into a great ocean of misery. You get a big samskara.
Verse 46: Only those who abandon material associations, serves the sages and becomes selfless crosses beyond maya.
Verse 47: The one who avoids society, loves solitude, lets go of the belief that there is security in worldly situations and transcends the gunas crosses beyond maya. You don’t want to change your state of mind. Gunas teaching. Awareness and the creation of the world. Causal and subtle body.
