“In Paris they simply stared when I spoke to them in French; I never did succeed in making those idiots understand their language.” -Mark Twain
In communication, clarity rules.
But logic is only one way people make sense of things.
They also connect emotionally; some key on that more than logic.
Then there’s volitional connection – the language formed around what they most want.
Logic, emotion, and desire – the stuff of the soul.
Communication is a soul-level exchange of understanding.
I can’t communicate to you until I have heard you.
And I haven’t heard you until I’ve understood your ideas, your heart and your desires.
Communication fails when we limit our levels of engagement.
If you want to hear and be heard, third time’s the charm.
