Pearl

We often hear the aphorism “Take what you resonate with and discard the rest.” + “Use your own discernment.

This is good advice.

—Except—

Why discard the rest?

Look closely at what you discard. By understanding what doesn’t resonate with you is to discover what does.

To find truth one must know untruth.

This is the process of developing personal discernment. To discard information is to rob yourself of that process and expose yourself to dogmatism and closed mindedness.

To reach the pearl we have to discover the beauty and danger of the ocean it resides in.
