allay *181* on advice

We think we advise according to our ideals, but we really advise according to what we are. Our ideals are tainted by our reality. So take advice from the one you envy, not the one you pity: take marital advice from the happily wed couple, not the cynical spinster. Ask financial advise from the millionare, not the hobo. Ask the patriarch about having children, not the priest. Take from he who has, not he who think he has, having nothing at all. For the resplendent god full of light, he gives advice freely and without trying: the people emulate him without wanting to or seeming to or knowing they do so. The one eager to give advise fools only himself. The one bitter nobody takes his own advice would do well to take it himself. We pass for what we are and happiness can't be faked. Love glows like a fire and cannot be hidden.
