As an interconnected, social, will-based creature, the human being naturally finds themselves, at some point, among other human beings and thereby becomes exposed to the influences of others. Naturally, in core concept, influence is a neutral factor, as is, by extension, the giving of advice. Advice in its ideal state is a positive concept, yet, in actual execution, this proves a multitude of variations based on several factors which will be identified. First, it is critical that the human being knows, not guesses, that advice is simply a piecemeal and not the entirety of the decision-making process. Here is where many human beings become confused, especially when the advice may be given by a fairly reputable source, inspiration, teacher, psychologist, friend, lover, brother, sister, people close, etc.
It is the case, especially in regards to human beings who are unaware that the entirety of life is choice, albeit in various forms including unconscious and subconscious factors, that such human beings can take in and absorb without any or very little consciousness blocks and resistances. Yet it must be known that each and every human being, even those who would be considered JHWHs, are still human beings, and thus, fallible creatures that can make mistakes. Even the closest people who one turns to for advice and counsel are thus imperfect, and it is simply impossible, even if the human being is adept at thought transmission and other fine-sensory abilities, for one human being to completely know and feel the thought-feeling-world of another human being.
Thus, advice by default is limited and can only work as a piecemeal at best. It is the case that human beings, as an example, who think very negatively about a situation, a person, a place, thing, obstacle, goal, etc. can, after talking to another human being for advice, be given terrible advice even though it may sound pleasing and harmonious to the ear, simply because the asking-for-advice human being can reflect their own insecurities toward the receiver, and the receiver must make educated assumptions and guesses based off the information being sent toward them. An easy example with this is the case when a pessimistic, insecure human being discusses a bonding partnership in excess with another human being and only vents the negative things. The receiving human being thus forms a negative opinion and sends back negative ideas, suggestions, etc. to the asking-for-advice human, who then receives this negative and doubles the original negation, thereby leading to an even worse situation and outcome.
Therefore, it must be said - be very careful who one seeks counsel from. If the giver of advice has not yet done the work to create a clean, pristine, certain consciousness, then the given advice is like food covered in sludge. It may be tasty, yet deadly to consume. This is not to say that healthy and pristine human beings do not have errors or problems, rather, that they are the better ones to consult regarding counsel. Yet even this must be limited, for even here, an over-positive-degenerative-dependency can be formed. This is why it must be also mentioned that advice can become a negating comfort zone if it is continued to be depended on in excess. The human being thereby loses confidence in themselves and their decision making and thus depends upon the advice of others - be it their friends, family, lovers, teachers, masters, gurus, tarots, astrology, social medias, approval from others, and so forth.
The truth is that each and every human being is in complete and total control of their lives even if they are religiously influenced or think that they're not in control. Influence, advice, and counsel only remain neutral factors, including impulses from Plejaren. These factors are neutral and in by no means any sort of force which means the human being must act upon what is given to them in their own way and their own expression. This is the case even if the human being wishes to say, "Well, this one said to do so", or, "This one said that."
All given information must first be processed neutrally before it is acted upon and one must not be too impatient, tense, and hasty before coming to decisions. This also applies to the innermost impulses which should also be paid attention to as priority over external influences. This is not to say one should get too caught up in a complete standstill, rather, one should continue moving forward but remain slow and steady. Thus, whatever is said outside the human being, whatever book is read, advice is listened to, information is gathered and so forth, should be taken with a grain of salt and neutrally observed to find its validity.
The other factor that must also be brought to the table is the mental, psychical, consciousness-based states of the advice-giving human beings which must be brought into question. As a rule, human beings with negative thought-feeling worlds, even if it may appear as they are doing the right thing or helping causes related to humanitarian and world-betterment interests, are human beings who provide poison with their advice. This isn't to say one cannot make use of the negative, even if the advice is from a negative-stricken human being, however, this is to say that one should have a certain distance and neutrality toward all advice that is given to them - especially in regards to self-decision making for the decision making process is entirely up to the individual whether he/she wishes to confront this fact or not.
The human being must know that they are their own lord and master and everything external should be aiding that process to steer his/her own destiny and ship in a positive manner and wise. Thus, whatever advice or information one gains outside the self should be neutrally processed before it is digested into a positive equalization in order to bring about good effects from it while stripping away the bad and the useless. Of course, it is possible the human being can gain good counsel and wisdom from other human beings, but such is not a given norm nor should it be ever expected. One must hold their distance, mentally, to all other human beings and remember that all things external, while needed and must be respected, still work as digestion products for the internal nature of the human being.
Thus, the internal can indeed be considered the true President of the human being, and whatever factors externally come, it is for processing and assessing so that the internal can radiate with positive-equalized-processed factors from the external food it was given. Another factor that must also be considered is that every human being lives his/her own individual life, and thus, advice naturally finds its own limitation here which is why given advice, if one is to be the giver, should aim to be as neutral as possible, especially when it comes in regards to personal relations. If one puts themselves too deep into personal advice, then this causes a dependency upon the giver, in addition to the possibility of altering the given's life and the lives of others which could be impacted in a very negative way if causality is not studied.
Of course, it is possible this can work positively, given in exceptions, but, any giver of advice should refrain as much as possible from becoming too personified in situations and keep a neutral distance in order to bring fairness and balance. Yet even then, the giver of advice is limited, because the asker's thought-feeling-world is something only the asker can truly experience. No other human being can feel another human being's feelings, regardless of having direct information or knowing detailed psychological factors. Each and every human being feels their own feelings and even if they influence others to feel similarly, this still works, at best, only as an influence.
No human being can feel the feelings of another though it is possible to sense them - this is still within the limitations of what is being sensed and felt in one's own consciousness. Thus, thought transmission, empathy, compassion, feelings for others, etc. are all still self-created factors to identify the relevant transmissions, waves, information, and so forth that the human being receives. It is critical that the human being remembers that they and only they are in control of their lives and all external factors work as a bonus and addition to this truth. Therefore, one's destiny; one's life, essentially what one makes of what one is given, is completely their choice.
This is why it is important that one maintains a distance toward even the good-giving-information and good-giving human beings in the context that the givers are not exalted so much that become the new god, lord, and master over the asking-for-advice human being. Indeed, such a dependency can be formed, even if the giver, the teacher, friend, lover, family member, and so on, may be innocent. One must not only seek to be advised, rather, seek to only take in the information from others so that it could bring a profound, positive effect upon the human being and the path of their own lives.
However, if this is not possible or not happening; that is to say that the advice is empowering, encouraging, and overall, positive-progressive-equalized, regardless of if the matters being asked or dealt with is of a tough, challenging nature, then the human should refrain from seeking counsel with those who deteriorate their thought-feeling-psychical-world. Indeed, even the hardest and most negative of things can be counteracted with the right given advice which should of course spawn from the human being themselves but can also be the case with confidants and counsels.
Thus it is also important that the human being seeks advice as little as possible, that is to say, that they do not become so hooked on the idea that they must be advised on every nook and cranny, every fiber and penny in their lives, and see to it that advice gradually becomes rarer overtime. The point of this is to exercise the human being's own control over their lives and to gradually eradicate the need to be reporting to others or gaining approval from them; for such living, that is to say, living solely for the thoughts and acceptance of others leads to a great loss of self-confidence and certainty, leading to self-weakness and mistrust.
One must always remember that the innermost Creational nature is within his/herself, and it is one's duty to continue growing-swelling and progressing the evolution. It is not necessary that one needs to talk, ask, and find approval from anyone or anything other than themselves. Of course, from there it requires a certain sense of altruism and self-responsibility that one handles this freedom with nobility, honor, love, respect, tolerance, and feelings for others along with the self, compassion, dignity, and patience.
