Fear, anger and stress about themselves or their possessions makes people make bad decisions.
A person feeling out of control, being faced with a threat, or the unknown for themselves can make a person do this.
These things are fine when for others, but when for oneself and so selfish, it can make decision making hard and cloudy.
Love for others is the best cure.
Need to be calm so God and the higher levels can guide a person.
If in a state where a person is concerned for themselves, their pre occupation with themselves will stop them from hearing and listening to these higher levels. . If is an emotional thing need to wait until the emotion passes so are calm again and can hear the higher levels.
Asking God and the higher levels can lead to good answers. Need to then wait for a time for them to come through.
