Wise counsel may be brief but it is vast.
Wise counsel may be short but contains much.
Wise counsel is a name, but it is also a story.
The meaning of wise counsel can be analysed with a single sentence and yet, volumes of words may be unable to convey it’s meaning.

Everybody has a question about an issue in life. Sometimes, these issues are so serious that nobody would want to make a mistake with decisions concerning them.
Naturally, we often have a few answers that we consider worth trying, concerning these issues.
For example, we had an issue to analyse and it was tha saying; a word is enough for the wise.
We generated questions surrounding this saying.
One of the questions is; which word is enough for the wise?
In answering this, remember that I asked you to generate your own answers. If you did, then you must have had a certain range of alternatives to what the right answer could be. When I asked if you were sure of the answer, you probably narrowed down to a more precise answer. Just like you probably did for all the other questions, you kept looking through the entire post to pick up clues and even after all of that, you would like to know my own answer.
Another of the questions is; whose word is enough for the wise?
To answer this, you can also recall that the fact that you have an important issue and would not like to make a mistake, restricts you from seeking answers from just anybody on the streets or anybody that does not have reliable expertise/relevant experience with the issue. The person must be wise.
And the last question; who is the wise?
I am sure that you now know that since the word must be from a wise person, the wise may be the advicer. Not a bad guess. But the fact that you had questions in the first place and the fact that you sought both answers and clarification increases your probability of being the wise.
Which word is enough for the wise?
There are many words, concepts and explanations in this entire piece. Some particular ones probably resonated with you. The word that best suits your ideas, values and beliefs must be the word word that is enough for the wise.
Whose word is enough for the wise? As I earlier mentioned, a person who has relevant experience, expertise in the issue concerned or a wise person. Never under estimate anybody, especially if there words resonate with your secret values and truths. The word may just come from anybody, afterall it’s a confirmation, because you have already generated answers from within.
Who is the wise? The one who is resolute to act on the best advice and to produce results is the wise. Advice streamlines your own thoughts and directs you to the right answers. If you do a good job within and have a precise answer for yourself, you will know the right word when you hear it. The wise is the one who has a question, who seeks for an answer within, who compares it with other sound opinions and bravely does the best, irrespective of the numerous conflicting opinions. The best advice is the one that perfectly resonates with your most true values.
To have sought answers to your questions and to further seek endorsement or approval is to have sought wise counsel.
Wise counsel is the advice you get from the wise that perfectly aligns with your personal wisest answers.
You are still responsible for your decision, irrespective of who gives you advice and that is why you must be wise and apply wisdom in taking decisions.
