Of course we know that we have to help eachother when asked so feel free to ask for any guidance and it dousn't mather if it is sl or rl related.

As all is always a reflection of your inner state of being and we are here and now to learn true experiance then its wise to use guidance of someone that can't thell you what you already know but can point at it.
