Do we need to blindly follow the order given by the human incarnation or analyze it?

[Shri Ganesh V asked: Padanamskaram Swamiji, What is better, thinking before following the order given by the human incarnation or thinking after following the order given by the human incarnation? Or are both bad. At Your divine feet, Ganesh V]

Swami replied:- Even God Krishna told Arjuna not to follow His advice blindly, but, to do analysis and follow the advice when his inner consciousness gets convinced. Even though the inner consciousness is convinced, unless the Paraprakruti or Prakruti or Jiiva or the impure cit associated with cittam is convinced, the human being cannot implement the advice. This impure cit is the jiiva (individual soul or awareness mixed with strong qualities accumulated from several previous births), which is the final authority in implementation. Unless you destroy these strong qualities with the help of the spiritual knowledge of the Sadguru, you (Jiiva) cannot follow the divine advice. This does not mean that you should not analyze the spiritual knowledge of the Sadguru because when you analyze and get convinced, you have started conquering your impure jiiva (presently yourself only). When you remember continuously the spiritual knowledge of the Sadguru, which convinced your inner consciousness, your impurities present in yourself (impure jiiva) get filtered off. When you become pure jiiva, you are convinced as soon as you hear your Sadguru because you can analyze properly on the spot spontaneously. The impurities, as wrong qualities present in you, are opposing the advice given by the Sadguru creating doubts and hence, your analysis is essential to convince the impure jiiva (impure individual soul), who is yourself in the present moment.
