Four Levels of Guidance

I say it is impossible ― you prove that it is otherwise.
Paweł Rewucki

The first is when a person who has not arrived at their own beliefs tells you what they think things should be like. It generally only adds up to the confusion.

Then, the help from a person who might have found some ways for themselves but does not really see your situation. The more similar you two are, the more likely it is that their advice will be of any use to you.

Third, when someone of understanding can see you as you are, things might actually take two courses. You may want to receive practical hints to be followed in particular circumstances or they may try to skillfully initiate your self-reliance.

The last one is when you do not really need to ask what to do.

The point is, the rain should be falling in you.
