      I would share with all. Then those truths would be available for others to decide if they are willing to accept it or not.

      what if you knew the truth? I would tell.


      would you share? Yes.


      or use it to your advantage? Absolutely not. Knowledge is the key to success. smile


      would you use what you know to destroy beliefs or strenghten them? Strengthen those beliefs.


      what if you had that knowledge????????  If I had the knowledge, I would share but there are times when the truth can hurt someone. I tend to hurt people's feelings on occasion because they wish not to always hear the truth. sad

        AEvans:Those who don't want to hear the truth, don't want it because they are scared to have it revealled and find out they are wrong. Strength comes from knowledge of the truth and being able to apply it in a beneficial way for yourself and for others.

          You seem to be attempting to display some sort of wisdom in your words or at least trying to sound profound, but knowledge is just one aspect of finding truth.

          Strength comes from understanding self, being honest with self, so faith in self can be reinforced.

            I think, therefore I am.
            If you have all the knowledge, you would therefore have all the truth too and be able to sift out that which is truth and disgarding that which is not truth.Self has nothing to do with it.

              Not quite. lol
              Actually, self has everything to do with it, because if you're not honest with yourself about being honest with yourself, then you will not be able to discern anything from the knowledge in which you gain, regardless of whether or not, you have ALL knowledge.

              How you discern the knowledge gained is what creates wisdom? If you're being dishonest with yourself, then you will falsely believe that you've gain wisdom. Thus, you will have sold yourself a lie.

              Nice try. wink

    I would share anything and everything I had that would benefit someone else in pursuing their dreams. This for me is something that I have lieved by all my life. This is the foundation of which I stand on. You can't get where you want to go, if you don't see a road map, instructions or find support. Selfishness has no place in a society that wants to create and aspire to better things. I as well believe in what you dish out, will come back to you ten fold. The whole Karma thing. So..I thank you for asking this very good question. I will look forward to reading more of your insights! take care.

      thank you for your replies however if the knowlegde was in your hand think about it the power to control how easy do you think you would find it to share that human nature being what it is????

        Knight: My answer would still stand. I would share it in a heartbeat. Knowledge has no boundry and should not be priced like a tomato. If we share our knowledge with everyone, maybe we would have peace.

    I'd share everything willingly and freely. Just as Almighty God does.

    Truth is already available to all people. It's universal, because it comes from the same place for all of humankind. Those who choose not to see it for what it is, are those who choose to remain ignorant with regards to accepting answers, when answers are given.

    Wisdom is limitless and it is what brings truth to the open. wink

    @ Knight 6

    Okay. well it is in my opinion that nothing is ever easy. Life, relationships, jobs, and people. or the way they choose to treat others and themselves. When you can give me one instance that is easy to do, create or apply, then we can really have a topic of dissuccision! smile

      @jo_goldsmith
      religious belief spritiual belief a god a buddha etc all these were so very easy to create and apply because people wanted to believe in something anything however it is in the contining of it that it gets hard thus if you had the knowlegde do you think you would be able to not use it for your own uses good or bad remember all belief systems start with knowlegde and sometimes a persons idea of the truth so if it is a topic lets call it "if you had the knowlegde and belief you knew the truth would you use for good or bad?"

    I knew what I had to be truth, I'd share it freely and let the chips fall where they may. I wouldn't push it. Some people don't want truth and should have the freedom to believe what they want.

      By doing this, it holds back humanity. People should understand that beliefs are not to be solidified. Life is ever changing. smile

        Absolutely, but I still wouldn't push. Those who don't want to change won't.

          However, pointing out their actions is still important.
          This is obvious. But, it also show how little they understand their own life and that too should also be pointed out to them, regardless of whether or not, they accept it. wink

            I don't know. It depends on what this truth was. How it would affect society, as a whole, by not accepting it.

            But, I think if I had the truth; once I'd settled into accepting I definitely had it and whatever I said was 100% accurate; I probably would become insistent after a while. I'd grow tired of people ignoring it.

      if i was to tell you that every living thing on this planet of yours has all the knowlegde inside them what would you say?and you are spot on with human nature it is always bad to let humans call the shots however that is the boat we are in but if you could use that knowlegde to change human nature would you remember weather you like it or not that knowlegde i speak of is in the mind of all living things and it is not about being scared it is about accepting

    knight   ty . and  to the first question    id say ours its not my planet its ours  my idea of what life is isn't narrow .  life is intelligent  i think all of it.      i don't fear knowledge  but i do fear  that we cant handle the truth. the question alone  shows that.     soon as we  know everything  first thing  wed want to do is change it. the truth   if we find it will be set in stone.
    these are just my ideas
