In general, is something that is helpful to me, helpful to you?
Does a concept belief that is good for me good for you?
How do we draw the line in the advice we give? We are almost always giving advice based on our experience but is that helpful?
I'd have to say sometimes yes and sometimes no. We're all at different points on our journey - hence we find some answers helpful and others we just don't resonate with right now - either because we've surpassed that point of understanding, or we haven't reached that point of awareness yet.
If we are giving advice from a heartfelt place and with good intention, I don't think we can really go too far wrong. Advice given that has been learned from personal experience will carry more weight than advice given from a text, simply because the giver is coming from an authentic place. However, it is always up to the recipient to discern what feels helpful.

Yes it is 2b2.
In fact i place more value on what works for others in a practical sense than i place on any amount of theory and rhetoric.
If someone tried something thats been good for them,then chances are it will be good for me and work.
Sharing of what works and what doesnt is surely vital for any development in this life.Sharing anything thats blessed you in any way is the least any of us can do for our fellow man.
Of course they may not accept this. Thats their choice.

I believe in the concept that two heads are better than one! Given that fact, we do need to share with each other to learn from each other, and to grow with each other.
Of course we would be using our better judgment in the final analysis, and we would be making decisions that are right for us, in our particular situation. So in essence the answer to your question is yes, if it suites the purpose, then it will work out just fine.

Yes. Anything that helps you helps us. How can it not?
No matter what others might think. We are in this together.
