Communication is one of the greatest tools we possess as individuals and societies. It can be used to bring us together, teach, heal and create. But it can also be one of our greatest problems tearing us apart. Many of the problems we see in the world today stem from communication — miscommunication, inappropriate communication or sometimes even a total lack of communication.
If we are going to heal the world, we have to start talking to each other. Not just talking at but also listening and communicating at deeper levels. The days of only talking about the important stuff with people we know agree with us needa to end.
I had already scheduled this month before the pandemic. But now communication has taken on a whole new meaning and importance hasn’t it? Stay with me for our regular Thought for Today as well of a few of my own thoughts about communication in the time of social distancing.
Please join me this month as we look at communication. Leave your comments below and let’s communicate!
“You can change direction if you feel like you have missed your way… Decide to do that now! Go back a little more and begin from where you missed it out! If only you are ready to rise again, you can make a right decision in that tight belly of the shark. Jonah did that earlier!”
― Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes
