Good navigation, avoiding pitfalls, they remind you of stuff...they are sort of like the missing part of your brain.
- What's in it for them? Are they bored or something?
I'm confident my guides are NEVER bored. Their pay-back is of little use for us to know; they're giving back what they, themselves, have been given.
I have a guide and been thru a few, but i am still having trouble since i read the Screwtape letters.
I enjoyed the statement about them being the missing part of my brain, and this seems true fro me also, except i might add that part of the brain that can hold you accountable in truth, like a mirror. But exactly like simple conscience but a sharp razor.
I wonder sometimes if we are meant to absorb the guide....which brings back the screwtape letters.......
