Truth is a form of tapping into direct knowing which is nothing like an opinion. An opinion is a warped twisted fact that is birthed from an agenda and driven by the ego. Direct knowing is the vibration of love. Because love and truth vibrate at similar frequencies. Most things people share are opinions. Truth has no agenda except to free people of the ego.
Those who tap into direct knowing have no desire to defend truth. They understand that some are privy to it and some are not. Those who appreciate truth will use that truth as a coordinates to tap into direct knowing for themselves. There is no need to stuff the brain with facts and figures when you are tapped into truth. Because all you need to do is ask a question and you have a direct line to the answer.
Doing this frees your energy up of needing to seem smart or proving that you know it all. A wise person does not need to lord information over others. They do not debate to engage in “one-upping” others. They share because they sincerely wish others to be free to engage in truth as well. There is no hierarchy in truth sharing. There is only a pass and fail perhaps. Those who lord information over others to feel superior are not passing.
They may not even recognize this in themselves because it is so subtle. But there are subtle signs that feel diminishing. One clue is using pet names to address others that depicts superiority. Another one is the feeling of inferior or insecurity that accompanies engaging them. Even a sense that person is more advanced than you.
Thinking someone is more gifted than you or more advanced is a cop-out. It is a way of ascribing them with an advantage that you don’t have as a way of preventing yourself from even trying to expound out of the scope of average. We all have super powers in a sense. It is a matter of tapping into our own worth and having the courage to show our abilities to others. So what if they don’t see them at first. The growth is for ourselves and how to express incredible love and gratitude for the experience of interaction. The joy of this makes all other trinkets of accomplishments pale in comparison.
