Exactly. Knowldge and experience shows you what is truth-the proof is in the pudding! Like you say you will be directed to the truth if your intentions are honest. Ask and it shall be given you.

So choose wisely-live your life with truth and humility, taking responsibilty for all that you say, think or do or choose to be just like everyone else and live with deciet and lies. One bears fruit and creates the other destroys and goes nowhere. All is choice!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10860089

I agree that one should always seek out Knowldge and experience.

Without going into too much detail about myself, I will say this. I have never been a very religious person but I have lived my life according to certain truths I think are important.

At one point when I got a little older I went through a very bad time. I had given an oath to God years before about a certain matter. at some point, in order to keep my word to the oath I took, it looked like I would be ruined by this oath. I had to make a decision. Break the oath to God or go down with the ship in ruin. I decided to go down with the ship, I just could not bring myself to break the oath for some reason even if it seemed like the most logical thing to do. When all looked lost it all ended. All my problems vanished.

I don't know how it happened. I have no explanation to this day. One day I was on the way out and the next day I was stronger than I have ever been. I hate to sound like a religious nut case (which I am far from being) but the only way I can describe it is it had to be some sort of "miracle".

I can only speculate as to what happened and I would probably be wrong. I think I was being tested or being tempted to break my word and when I decided I would go down with the ship, I was somehow protected by some power. I know it sounds crazy but believe me, I would not type this if it did not happen just as I state it.


It is why I think your word is important...very important. Nothing to trifle with.

If you do the right thing, regardless of the cost to yourself you will be ok and looked after because you are creating something with a positive intent. Also be true to yourself and live your life with your truth and turn negative situations into positive ones. Afterall a negative situation is there
to teach you something, so look for the reason and find the positive, look with positive eyes and you will get the best outcome. This has more power than people realise.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10860089



"you will be ok and looked after" . . . Who is going to do that. . . .the universe. . . Your higher self? . . .coffee4
 Quoting: George B


You will be looked after by your protectors. You will be guided in the right direction, it is still up to you to do the action and make the choice. They do not need you to believe in them they are there anyway. By gaining knowldge you will find this out yourself and just because you don't believe in something doesn't mean it is not so. Your belief in something or not is irrelivant.

Another thing that will guide you is your instinct, however, it is still down to you to choose to listen and make a choice of what to do. Also the choices you make will determine the outcome (consequence) wether it be positive or negative.

You may not beileve any of this, that is your choice to do so, it doesn't however make it not so, it just means that you are not ready for this knowledge yet. The beliefs you have at this moment are based on your own experiences and what knowledge you have gained to so far. I have true knowledge, which is different to just a belief. True Knowldge can be tested and verified. However it is amazing how blind people are to true knowledge even when it is put right in front of them. Again this is choice!

Your protectors are usually loved ones who have passed or old family members. They choose to watch over you and guide you, they have this choice. You may also have protectors from previous lives with you also. You would call them your spirit guides, which I suppose they are, although it is not a mystical thing.

I know what I have told you to be true because I have been trained and taught many things by a private tutor for over 20 years. I have had evidence many times over and experienced many things to know what is so. Everyone is on a personal journey so we are all learning what we choose to learn.

My journey has brought me the knowledge that I have. However, from your point of view the knowledge I have is just some one elses opinion, so unless you go out and question and search you will never know if what I say is correct or not. This is the start of the search for truth. As I said before-seak and yeah shall find. this is not a religious thing, just true.

To learn you must question, question, question and test everything. Never believe what you are told until you can confirm it yourself. You will be guided in the right direction if your intentions are pure and humble, because after all knowledge can be a blessing and a curse, and a little knowldge can be dangerous, without full understanding. True knowledge can be tested and confirmed because it is built upon solid foundations and can be verified.

My searching and questioning brought her to me, you could call it destiny. She is no longer here and was not part of any religion or group etc. The closest philosophy that I can point you towards is buddism, because it teaches you about self and not to worship anyone/thing and to be true to yourself.
My teaching was focused on choice, questioning, non-judgement and understanding. The first thing before you can really learn is to learn about who you are. Know thyself, which means soul searching and tapping into and accepting all you positive traits and negative ones and accepting who who are

Proofiness: The Dark Arts of Mathematical Deception [Hardcover]

The bestselling author of Zero shows how mathematical misinformation pervades-and shapes-our daily lives.

According to MSNBC, having a child makes you stupid. You actually lose IQ points. Good Morning America has announced that natural blondes will be extinct within two hundred years. Pundits estimated that there were more than a million demonstrators at a tea party rally in Washington, D.C., even though roughly sixty thousand were there. Numbers have peculiar powers-they can disarm skeptics, befuddle journalists, and hoodwink the public into believing almost anything.
