    Who among you would reject important information simply because it doesn't line up with your own personal beliefs and/or may cause you emotional upset?

    White Man Knowledge....I know you're very perceptive so I'll let you meditate on that one.

    White Man Knowledge....Where does White Man Knowledge come from???
    Anyone can answer this one.

    Let me start by saying the "White Man Knowledge" that White Men have been using AGAINST the Indigenous people of Earth had to come from somewhere, baby...Considering he is a "johnny come-lately" to the planet. So White Men are supposed to have false knowledge, yet he's "smart" enough to have over a billion people on the Continent practicing Christianity and shunning their traditional Indigenous Spirituality.

    Even if some info on the links that are provided is tainted, the whole Idea of being "Spiritual" includes being able to discern truth from falsehood. Anyone using their "THIRD" eye these days???

    Y'all let me know what's up.

    AAAUUUMMM

    - since I have no "belief" system I don't qualify to answer this ?. I am guided by the Universe to seek knowledge.........

    - I would though like to see how you would answer your own ?....................

    "White man knowledge"?

    I didn't know information was owned by a particulare race or gender.


    Truth is truth.

    Fact is fact.



    The prinicples and science behind nuclear energy are set and remain the same regardlesss as to whether a black man discovers it or a white man uses it.


    The fact that it takes a sperm and egg to make an embryo is the same whether known by a man or acknowledged by a woman.


    This is what I mean, why must we reject important information just because we don't like it's source or how it makes us feel?

    Why not accept it then put it to use OUR way?

    Just because I may not choose to practice a certain religion doesn't mean I disagree with the positive messages it puts forth.

    So if a religion told you to raise and slaugher an animal in a certain way and drain all of it's blood to rid it of as much disease possible...

    You wouldn't call it "Jew Food" and reject it would you?

    You would accept it as wisdom and follow the practice until a better one comes along.

    For this very reason, I don't eat meat, and wouldn't practice any such system that told me to do so.

    It's interesting, how I've found myself agree with your statements more and more these days, AQI.

    PEACE

    To answer the original question posted here:

    The answer for me is YES, I would accept it.

    The key with knowledge, is that it governs the realm of the Mind (mental) not the Heart (emotional).

    Thus, if you have an emotional response or connection to some idea, theory, notion, etc, then you are not dealing in the realm of the mental, for the mental has/knows no feelings about any subject.

    It is only then, that we can enhance our higher intellectual faculties, when we seek to conquer our lower, emotional aspects.

    I was once taught that the mind and heart move at 2 different speeds; one moves at the speed of light (sight), the other moves at the speed of sound (hearing).

    The key is to coordinate both speeds, to bring them as close to in-sync with each other as possible (though that is not often easy).

    PEACE
