truth & discourse

We cannot simply accept what we read on the WWW, or in other media, as truth.

Incorporating new data into practice requires filtering, development, adoption and the goodwill of all stakeholders. To simply accept data as knowledge is wrong. We must critically reflect on this information, and, with experience, wisdom, discourse we can move closer to truth and enlightenment.

Bloggers, I follow several folks: writers, journalists, and those who look at life around them. It open up my eyes to other person's experiences. It important to reflect on what we read here.

We must explore truth as we understand it, to come to a better understanding of ourselves and our world. We must question what we perceive as truth, take it out and hold it up to the light in the presence of others to approach enlightenment.

I find it both interesting and defeating that some bloggers cannot abide a difference of opinion and lack the wherewithal to accept that 'just because we don't see eye-to-eye doesn't mean that we can't walk arm-in-arm". My opinions have been changed by perspectives previously reflected in my ideas, life, experiences.
