i am posing this question because, i feel, if you are here then you think differently than most others. i also hope that you all feel that if we were all on the same wavelength regarding the more pressing issues, life for all would greatly improve. now, i'm not saying that i aim to influence the motives and actions of others, but i would appreciate any access to effective learning/teaching tools so as to inform our brothers and sisters that through understanding we can achieve harmony.
As much as you want them to see the world as you see it and "believe" it is to be, sometimes the best thing you can do is pray for those brothers and sisters. I am with you in this thought, the thought that you are a few feet from your family but your lives are miles apart, and that you might lose them. You feel helpless. I do think that Jae Woodward mentions this powerfully and that is "In order to help those that you love, you first have to help yourself" (something along those lines).
Truth only needs to be spoken (in the vernacular of the audiences). Truth is energized when acted upon (understanding optional), but when truth is not adhered to then consequences begin to steamroll (small at first many times but building as the truth is rejected).
I heard it once described as the "Brickwall Principle." There is a stop sign before a perpendicular road. Immediately across the street is a massive brick wall. Those of good sense will stop, look both ways and proceed. Those without a sound mind will continue headlong into the brickwall.
In other words, you can lead a horse to water, if he's thirsty he will drink. You can give a man the answers, but you can't make him think.
By being gradually persuasive.
Just telling them flat out what's going on will send them into complete denial and the taught-in response most of them have.
You gotta inform people at their own level of understanding and progress further as they are catching on.
I like it straight up please tell me
well well guys, knowledge is sought because your soul thirsts. No one on this forum was told to look into this or that, it was an awareness call. our proclamations are but warning signs on the highway of ignorance
Heard a great line once, "You can lead a horse to water; if he's thirsty he will drink. You can give a man the answers, but you can't make him think."
Freedom of speech means nothing without freedom of thought, Without freedom of thought there is no truth. Without truth there is no wisdom,
Why are you so mean? I am not dumb, or stupid. Does it make you feel better to put others down? You are in my prayers .
