He is warned not to get involved in the personal problems of others, not to assume responsibility for their own duty of forming decisions, and not to believe that he is helping them when they try to evade the necessity of using their own powers and judgement. At his present stage it is safe only to communicate what he knows of the general laws of the spiritual life. Beyond this he should not usually attempt to go, but should let each person apply them for himself to his individual problems. The effort thus called forth will be more valuable to that person's own evolution than blindly obeying someone else.
