When you look at this photo...do you smile?
It is "Soul to Soul " communication.
No words are necessary.
It is the best form of communication, however, one of several.
There is also...
Head to Head communication = Conflict
Head to Heart communication = Manipulation
Heart to Heart communication = Understanding
This morning I read the knowledge below, by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and felt compelled to share it.
I have read it and practiced it many times. It has taught me patience and the skill of communication.
This knowledge has served me so well in my personal and professional life.
There is no value using our words to hit someone over the head with a hammer.
Even if you're right - you'll stand alone, feelings are hurt, and belongingness is destroyed.
There is also no value in not speaking at all to someone you are close to, when their behavior is negatively impacting themselves or others. I've found the best way to communicate is authentically, and from a space of love. It's important to choose the right time, i.e. when you feel that person is ready to receive what you have to share. Do not scold or guilt - who responds positively to that? That is simply layering negativity upon negativity, to get what you want.
Share from a space of love, with the aim of creating awareness of how their behavior is negatively impacting themselves or others.
If someone still chooses not to wake up to reality - then Sri Sri suggests, take a stick. Let them know how you will change your behavior toward them, as they are choosing to continue on the same negative track. This will maintain belongingness along with your peace of mind.
Let me know how it goes as you apply this ancient wisdom in modern times....
