Stating the obvious, learning is a curve. It's easy because you know this stuff. I learned late, the folks I speak to don't have my background so I have to drop back about thirty years and start forward as if an entry level discussion. I speak as if the person is clueless and build from there. It's about the inexperienced individual, not the experienced person. Without someone to listen, the person doing the sharing is doing so to entertain themselves. It's not about ego, it's about showing the individual the path and then getting out of their way. Some people understand these points, others don't. I'm old, not my worry.
My sharing formula, I find out what the individual doesn't know, then I start moving forward from their state of awareness, not from mine. Philosophically, it's incumbent on the seeing to teach the blind, not the other way around.
