Knowledge Mobilization (KMb): Multiple Contributions & Multi-Production Of New Knowledge

Compassion Of Being Open To Knowledge Leads To Wisdom


Human beings fear ridule of their knowledge. We worry that others might say that we are stupid, not as knowledgeable, our understanding is limited, or our talk isn’t clear and so on. The important thing to remember is that no one is perfect, so why should we be so concerned with how we share our knowledge as long as we are sharing our knowledge for social benefit and not harm.  If we can bring into our lives more openness and not be so critical of our own ability and value of sharing knowledge, then life is more fulfilling.

A person who knows how to be open with oneself and others has compassion and knowledge that leads to wisdom. When we encounter others and are open to them when they may not seem as knowledgeable but are still willing to share their knowledge we are actually showing compassion and kindness and making the world a better place.

Why should we be so concerned with how much knowledge a person has if we are all on our own personal knowledge journies to keep increasing our knowledge and the knowledge of others when we are open to mobilizing knowledge together?

    I agree, when we share knowledge with compassion, we often end up learning more. The challenge is not to be sidetracked or demotivated by people who play manipulative and competitive knowledge games

      Thanks for your comment Sharon. I always think knowledge can be used for good or harm. The personal choice we make in how we share our knowledge with integrity and openness is the same as how we live our lives in treating others. Unfortunately, there will also be people who will not take this approach. They may sidetrack us or we may become demotivated but we still have a choice to get back on track and return to being motivated with integrity and openness. Thanks again for making such a valuable contribution to sharing knowledge for good and not harm.
