When the  formalist barnacles fermenting in the foolproof formald­ehyde  of habit  awaken from  their stagnant pool of slumber  and realize that  the life-gi­ving waters of the world  have shifted to more fertile shores,  perhaps then will they  swim with colorful crustac­eans  and learn to wiggle a bit more comfort­ably  out of their weary shells

主語と述語の関係、そしてguide(動詞)の使い方について。"Now you can guide"だと「今あなたが(誰かを)案内できます」なので、"Now we can guide you"(日本語で普通考えない案内する主語のweを入れるべき)が正しい、と最初はそれだけを書こうと思ったが、もう少し考えたらこの文脈ではguideが適訳ではない。マッサージなど、何かのサービスを提供する店で、「予約不要、しかも待つ必要がない」という意味で"Walk-ins are welcomed. No waiting."のような英文が自然だと思う。つまり、こういう意味の「ご案内できる」という言い回しは英語に直訳できないと思います。
