Cloudy or Clear?

Do you ever wonder why people misunderstand you or get the wrong message when you communicate?

The first reaction to miscommunication is ‘I already told them. Were they not listening?’ Yet so often they did listen but what was communicated was not clear.

When we communicate we describe what our mind perceives. The mind holds thoughts and expectations which colours our vision. We often take basic details for granted. We don’t see them and thus they are not communicated.

It is not about how much information is given, as too many words can be confusing and overloading. It is about the clarity, completeness and accuracy of what is given.

Think before you communicate, use words wisely and listen to what you say. Waste no words – each one should be necessary and valuable, leaving no room for doubt. There will be no extra, irrelevant, comments, opinions or remarks to cloud the issue.

Regular meditation acts as a refining process which brings clarity to all expressions – verbal and subtle – until it becomes the natural way of thinking and being. The more I learn to go into silence and experience peace and clarity of the mind, the more I will have the ability to communicate clearly, wisely and appropriately.

 

Om Shanti

    Thank you for this wonderful post. Very helpful to recognize that it is my internal clutter that prevents me from listening to others. I would like to hear more about how you meditate to remain in silence. Often when I meditate work thoughts or other thoughts start coming in my over active mind. I would love to get your perspective.

      Hi,
      Thanks for your comment.
      We practice Raja Yoga meditation which used the mind and thought in a positive and powerful way to create or recreate an experience.
      We do not stop the mind from thinking as we believe that is un-natural. The purpose of the mind is it think. What is key though – is what it thinks.
      So we actively create thoughts in the mind, and experience them.

      When the mind is absorbed in doing this it will not be pulled to think other things…like you were saying.
      Instead it will become absorbed in another track of thinking which is creating positive feelings in the soul also.
