A model for sharing wisdom

Sharing wisdom is not always smooth. First, we both have to have a common language and understand each other. And then, we have to help others think of how the wisdom fits into what they already know. This is even harder in the face of those who believe that their way of receiving wisdom is the only proper way e.g. insisting that you believe that certain doctrines and certain things are incompatible, despite of people accomodating them together successfully. Wisdom of life is to be used individually and therefore flexibly! In the long run, such a blind attitude will impede us all in accessing the wisdom. Therefore, we must start cutting through it today.
