Sharing an idea does not diminish, it can enhance.

Remember that spirit knows no difference between having and being. The higher mind thinks according to the laws spirit obeys, and therefore honors only the laws of God. To spirit getting is meaningless and giving is all. Having everything, spirit holds everything by giving it, and thus creates as the Father created. While this kind of thinking is totally alien to having things, even to the lower mind it is quite comprehensible in connection with ideas. If you share a physical possession, you do divide its ownership. If you share an idea, however, you do not lessen it. All of it is still yours although all of it has been given away. Further, if the one to whom you give it accepts it as his, he reinforces it in your mind and thus increases it. If you can accept the concept that the world is one of ideas, the whole belief in the false association the ego makes between giving and losing is gone. T-5.1.1: 5 - 14

There are many experiences where sharing increases gain not diminishes such as sharing a song, a joke, applause, an idea. The sharing enhances, it does not diminish.

In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to accept one another and encourage spiritual development by sharing ideas, singing songs together, applauding when things give us joy, sharing our humor.

Today, share a joke, a song, an idea and watch it blossom among those involved.
