DWQA QuestionsCategory: Extraterrestrial Corruption of Human InstitutionsA former intelligence agent started a business coaching people in spy techniques and insights that he believed could be applied to everyday life to help people be more effective in accomplishing whatever it is they set out to do. Like most things in life, these techniques and understandings can be used for good or evil. A match can light a birthday candle or start a forest fire. To the extent that others might use these teachings for harm, how much karmic liability attaches to the teacher? Is this a reason why dangerous knowledge was historically reserved for initiates? And even that would seem to have karmic polarity in that it safeguards the innocent and immature on the one hand, but can also be a means to hoard and deny access to resources that one can argue should be more widely shared. What is Creator’s perspective on the “safe handling” and/or dissemination and sharing of material that is potentially helpful but equally dangerous?

This question gives a perfect example illustrating the problem of having knowledge and information not widely known, but having important implications and a potential for good as well as ill if acted on by the wrong parties. There are innumerable moments in life when one person has the upper hand over another in a given situation. It might be knowing a secret about someone close to them and such information might be hurtful to share. This could happen for any number of reasons. Knowing something another does not does impart a certain kind of power and potential authority. This is why education is highly prized and an important pursuit for everyone, because those with a meager education will fall behind and will never likely hold positions of responsibility and have a corresponding remuneration that is in line with their value to others and to society. But high-level knowledge, especially about sensitive matters, is a highly prized commodity but carries with it risk as well. Secrets are always carefully guarded and for good reason. That stems back, always, to the rise of evil, that not all can be trusted, and this is true for many, many reasons, not only facing other beings who are darkened and corrupted and, accordingly, untrustworthy and even dangerous. There are many circumstances where having superior knowledge comes about through the course of life with maturity and gaining adulthood. But then, when having a family and raising children, those children will be naïve and ignorant about many things and, in fact, need to be sheltered from many unpleasant and potentially harsh realities until they are old enough to take it in stride, and have a reasonable chance to stay in balance facing the more difficult consequences of their decision to incarnate on a kind of battlefield—that describes the human condition as well as anything if a single word were chosen. The responsibility parents have to the young include shielding them during their tenderest years and acclimating them bit by bit to more challenging concepts and aspects of life, waiting until they are old enough, ideally, to start bringing them up to speed. Those are basic parental responsibilities and duties. There are many times when people will benefit from being shielded through a withholding of information. People learn to not blurt out everything they might be thinking, especially those things that might be felt as critical and judgmental. People are expected to overlook others' faults at least up to a point. Someone who goes out of their way to criticize will be viewed harshly as destructive and will likely be shunned, so there is an artful approach everyone needs to learn about when to stay silent, hence the wise saying, "If you have nothing nice to say, it is better to say nothing at all." When it comes to large matters of power and control, with implications affecting the welfare or even potential survival of someone, there will be a corresponding increase in what is at stake. So much about life is a kind of dance in making a series of judgments about what to share and what to withhold, what to reveal and what to remain silent about. Each individual will have a somewhat differing perspective and threshold in how they process information and view their role in things, so it is a complex arena all are thrust into and must find ways to adapt and cope as best they can.
