“When we communicate with others we often fail to understand... that we don’t understand.”
— James McPartland
Our external realities stem from the stories we carry around with us in our minds.
Imagination then has us using words that impact the way we view our external reality in order to conform reality to the stories we tell ourselves.
We do it often. We look at the world around us and create a dialogue to justify a story we’ve created around why we feel stuck, because of external conditions in our lives.
How then, do we come to have harmony?
One of the most powerful things we can do is have the courage to ask ourselves, “What am I pretending not to know?” If we pause and seek to be honest
with ourselves, we can take personal responsibility for how we show up in the world around us.
And choosing to be responsible for how we communicate brings alignment between who we are and the messages we are trying to get across to other people.
