sometimes , we are uncomfortable hearing or reading certain things; because they serve as reminders that we need and we would rather "escape" them. Things we need to learn most are ironically the things we are extremely resistive to.
my learning has been that the teachers recur in different avatars until we learn.
Truth reminds us from myriad sources. We mostly tend to focus on the sources, rather than on our responses to the stimuli. Secure concepts we have taken refuge in are threatened in such stimuli. The role of stimuli as I see it, is to test our concepts and then to faciltate a stronger adherence or a drop off.
Shutting off merely "manages" a conflict. To me, it indicates, shakiness and off-centring within.
Always , a matter of personal choices , though.
