A way to humbly challenge someone without initiating conflict is to put them to the task of having them answer why they would say or do something and simply hold them to a standard of honesty. No over-rehearsed talking points! No dogma! In this way, if successful, they turn their awarness on themselves instead of you as the object. If it won't take, perhaps because they refuse to have any insight or have become increasingly irate, I suppose you should just let them be. Some just aren't ready and for that time are beyond reaching. Simply treat them with compassion.

And false security is always delusion IMHO. Better to let nothing rest. To be ever striving for the "truth" by evaluating and re-evaluating EVERY BELIEF or scrap of so called "knowledge". To do otherwise is to fall into delusion, albeit you could via chance be correct. But that is just me and I'd never tell anyone else how to live their life except as admittingly highly subjective and failable advice.

Is this humility or impotence in your opinion?
