Just a stray thought.

Sometimes, I feel it's most important that people know and believe the truth – which is passion, but also no small degree of arrogance, to imagine I know such a thing. But other times, I feel it's best they believe whatever comforts them, regardless of my ideas of truth (and fact), so long as they do as little harm as possible. But that's pretty much the whole of the Law, isn't it? (Rhetorical question.)

Belief is, in my (humble, yes) opinion, intended to provide both awe and comfort. As you said, so long as they are minimizing their harmful impacts, it's all good.

We all have infinite time to discover Truth, and I do not believe (there's that word again...) that this existence is one in which people can easily or frequently access it.
