"People are more interested in being right than effective"
So many lovers in the world crave connection. We crave relationship on many levels: parents, children, significant other, friends, co-workers, etc.
All of the knowledge in the world (ie. facts, stories, statistics) DOES NOT affect connection when it comes to matters of the heart. Connection comes from understanding that person you crave connection with. Knowing the facts of their world may not create the same connection as being with them in their fears, dreams, and triumphs. Understanding that person's heart and language of love is an understanding that cannot be measured, calculated, recorded, or documented.
I invite you to let go of knowing the "right" thing to do or say and BE with someone on a level that allows you to hear at the level in which they speak. Let them tell you who they are. Let them show you how they wish to be seen. Let them dream out loud with you and you will be able to see their future with them. You will see, hear, and feel a whole new world that has been in front of you all along. You may see that person in a whole new light.
Expand this to a global perspective, wow. Understanding an entire race, culture, or lifestyle!? Can you imagine letting go of everything you "know" and just allow yourself to understand? Allow yourself to actually not know and create room to learn! Allow yourself to be taught. What a beautiful opportunity in connection between insanely large and diverse groups. What an amazing opportunity to unify polarities for all the best reasons.
I invite you to go out and connect. Let go of knowing. Start listening to understand.
Share your understanding with the world. Keep creating lovers in the world.
Live the life you love,
