No one prescribed method guarantees true discernment. In fact, some prescribed methods must be transcended and perhaps subverted, before true discernment occurs. In the absence of integration with other ways of framing and responding to questions --- the specialized methods of isolated: scientists, politicians, scholars, and religious leaders --- cannot assure that there will be any true discernment. Specialized methods often block the asking of the most relevant and timely questions --- by imposing restrictive: assumptions, beliefs and convictions --- and by subverting dialogue with those who are not likewise specialized --- to the exclusion of complementary methods of seeing and knowing. Discernment may entail the recognition of the answers to questions which HAVE NOT BE ARTICULATED --- because of dominant forms of exclusive-specialization. It is not easy to accept answers to questions which have not yet been framed and asked! How is one to prove that the answers make any sense? What honored specialist is going to be supportive of a discernment which transcends their own exclusive manner of specialization? Discernment may make sense to only a few people who are ready to receive the insights entailed in the discernment --- without first having asked/articulated the question(s) which related to the discernment. The value of a revolutionary new discernment process cannot be authenticated by any traditional authority, ritual or formal process. The value of a discernment process depends upon it helping people make sense of their experiences which here- to-for have made no sense to them. Through discern- ment --- people who have been entrapped by "The Domination System", "The Fallen Powers That Be" and/or domineering people --- see what they could not see before, hear what they could not hear before, understand what was incomprehensible before; and do what was apparently impossible before. True discernment leads to new kinds of perception- with-integrity --- of-the-integrity-which-exists-within: some people's relationships, within some individuals, within some communities, and within some conceptual frameworks. True discernment leads to greater clarity about what/who is: true, honest, authentic, and worthy of reverence. True discernment leads to revolutions which subvert in gracious ways --- the ways in which domineering people support their collusive games of mutual self deception, "The Fallen Powers That Be" and "The Domination System". Many powerful people will seek to subvert any true discernment, often as covertly as they can --- so nobody will know what happened! Revolutions are displeasing to many powerful people! Be aware and beware! (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
