No matter how much or less experience you have or how different or diverse each and every one of us are ... individually or in a group ....
WE MUST STICK TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY AND NOT IGNORE OUR NEIGHBOURING FELLOW TRUTH SEEKERS AND EXPLORERES, ETC OR OTHER GROUPS JUST BECAUSE THEY MIGHT BE DOING SOMETHING A LITTLE DIVERSE OR DIFFERENT. EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OPINIONS WITHOUT JUDGEMENT... BUT THATS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE :(
When we are doing this important work and sharing and helping to guide others, especially when people are new to this ... it's ok to let them know where you (the guide, mentor, facilitator or coordinator) are at and how much experience you have with this but keep it REALISTIC and don't egotistically fluff it up .. theres already enough disinfo out there.
If you are new to this work ... ask questions of those you have seeked out about their experience in this field your interested in and to share their experiences. Make sure there is transparency and legitimacy.
Make sure the person/s or group guiding you or you follow doesn't have hidden personal agendas ... ask them a straight question "what's your personal agendas with doing this work" ... if there's no agendas there will be no hesitation in answering.
Newcomers have fun learn and share but be diligent and discerning. Unfortunately there are disrupters in all walks of life, including spiritual and fringe topics like Ufology, etc.
