How do individuals decide what is right rather than what is convenient to do?
Esteban, I like the resolution the message is clear. Yes the Truth gives us what each deserves, it can validate one to be attractive to what is good in Life. The really real things have the characteristics of being true to what they are and are not counterfeit imaginings. If one smiles on top of a snarl they may be smiling but they won't be smiling long. I would like to wish you a Happy and Joyous Eastertime.

How do individuals decide what is right rather than what is convenient to do?
Esteban, I struggled with "both Truth and deception are self validating". Originally that is what I wrote but it conflicted mentally to me. In a general statement I think that would be true but on a personal level I can only validate one at a time. Validating one invalidates the other, so a decision in validity to end self conflict was in order. Correspondence between what is claimed to be and what happens to be would seem to be the integrity of one's willingness to atone to Truth and the resulting perception of a Supreme Reality. The Truth makes things really real. For the some and many may they find the God of their understanding. As we know "Some Will Smile In Truth and some will snarl in self deception". Your old saying works everywhere! Best Regards

Well Esteban, I remember now "The Absolute Truth is Self Validating" and so self deception and denial must be self invalidating and Spiritually debasing. To embrace the idea that there is no Absolute Truth is to say the Principals of Creation are invalid on both the physical and non physical levels, science and Spirit are meaningless. Life with that misunderstanding in mind has no purpose and serves nothing. Truth is revealed in the experience of Life. You can't give yourself Truth but you can seek and find. That is vision of mind not perception of the eye. The mind being the source of perception. Perhaps Snowden woke up one day and decided to follow the Truth no matter what, forsaking all else. Perhaps the Truth is what is correct and right and could be used as the same answer for all decisions convenient or not. PS: It would not matter if I know the stand of Ultimate Authority, I could follow the Principle of Trust, knowing or not knowing. Best Regards

How do individuals decide what is right rather than what is convenient to do?
Esteban, I had noticed that things did appear to turn into something else in reading through the conversations. I wonder what would cause such an effect to unfold? It is true for me that I perceive past, present and future, time and space, all connected. What I cause in present time is seen as effect as time unfolds and is stored in memory of past. Perhaps a way that time becomes a good friend. Cause and effect appear to happen in the same instant although I do not always see it. Similar to expansion and pressure, where you find one behold you find the other. That is interesting you use the same answer and I make one decision. Maybe the same answer for all decisions make all decisions one decision. In error I have decided for anger and asked that my misuse of will be guided and experienced a transformation of effect to that of Peace, I attest that it works for me. To be clear I am not referring to appeal or deferral to authority, I am expressing that my decision making process be guided by Faith in Creation as I have come to know and believe in. I would agree for the most part, past experience is a crap shoot. I wish you smoother roads and gentler pathways with your posted question.

My goodness why is Mr. Trevino asking a question he already knows the answer to? Decisions are directed toward what awaits in the future, the past has been decided. How do you decide what is right or convenient in the unknown of the future, past experience? Perhaps surrendering to the guidance of Greater Authority is the better way, after all there is only one decision I must make.

Is the role of the non specialist in technical matters useful?
Thank you for being clear on the details. At first I thought you were talking about a group who were looking to make the Earth bigger and then were going to ask me to drink their special Kool-Aid. As a layman I don't find the expanding earth hypothesis to appear that far out. We are sitting on top of a molten thermal core. Heat energy gives rise to expansion, expansion gives rise to pressure, pressure gives rise to movement. If I have got any of it correct so far it's only the tip of the iceberg. I could see where there are many, many other factors at play such as surface thickness, material, temperature and so on. I don't see where expansion being a driving force to move the plates necessarily would mean expanding the total volume of the Earth. Our little blue planet is quite the system. If nothing else I have gained a new found respect for what it means to be a geologist and what they do. BTW: I do not believe you think the idea is "crackpottery".

Richard, What about reclaiming the Moon for mineral assemblage or pumping air into the core and creating more surface area. Would you mind an Earth with a hollow core. I am not clear on why anyone would want to expand the Earth. My observation of the Universe as a non specialist is to try to grasp the patterns of movement to gain a view of transforming energy and try to understand. It seems movement must occur prior to anything occurring. Did something move out of nothing or has something always been moving and I misperceive it came from nothing? The plot of the mystery thickens, am I in a layered dream where the moving conscious mind is moving a static universe somewhat like driving and everything appears to move outside. Then we have the concept of the multiverse where things no longer explode big bang like from nothing but gently percolate into existence from something. Digging into ones mind is much like digging into the sentiment you can only go so far until it disappears into the core erased in time and you're left holding supposition.
