We can only share what is given in scriptures.  However, cannot point the 'Ultimate Truth' to somebody.

The one who has realised the Ultimate Truth can only take the responsibility of pointing this to somebody else

To become a Guru / Acharya is not an easy task and our Gita teacher used to scold us when
we used to think & point towards someone who is 'less intelligent' and unable to cope up with studies.  
When we think that someone doesn't know anything / knows something; it implies that we know more in compared
to that person.  Unknowingly, we slip into 'मिथ्याचारः' 

Quite often, these tendencies of 'teaching others' slip from our pen but as far as 'adhAtma-vidyA' is concerned,
we shouldn't don the role of Guru / Acharya.  This is very dangerous in our path of sAdhana.

कृष्णं वन्दे जगद्गुरुम्

        Dear Sri Venkata Sriram,
 I  completely  agree  with 
 you.The  Ultimate  truth  has  to  be 
 pointed  out to  all  the  persons 
 irrespective  of  their grasping  power. 
 When  their  aMtaHkaraNa  gets t  uned  to 
 that  frequency  resonating  to  the 
 Ultimate  Truth  by 
 Grace  of  The  Guru  and  The 
 Divinity, the   reciter  no  longer 
 remains  as  a  reciter  but abide  as 
 the  KNOWER  of  RECITATION. Is  it  not 
 a  fact?
 respectful namaskars,Sreenivasa Murthy

 True....but we must not
 forget that people have different IQ & intelligence
 levels and
 power vary from person to person. 
 bahiryAga leads to
 antaryAga...and the the 'devotee' in us should not
 ignored in the
 pursuit of knowledge. 
 becomes mukhya and jnAna as gauNa initially and later
 jnAna becomes mukhya and
 karma as gauNa.  At the end,
 karma merges in jnAna and only jnAna remains...
