Over the past few months it has come to my attention I need to start writing books. I have stated for years that I did not want to write books, I wanted to teach people how to read at a new level. However, I will be able to share my heart and passions with many more if I am willing to transcribe.
Writing is to reading as speaking is to hearing. Just because something is written does not mean someone reads it for what it says, what is understood has to do with where that person is coming from, what they have been through (experienced), and how they have come to perceive the world.
Speaking is much the same – have you ever had a conversation with someone about something that you found to be fascinating and or of great value, and the person you are speaking to seems glassed over, uninterested, or did not even let you finish – just interrupted or even started in a new conversation with someone else? We have all been there.
With writing and speaking – communication is desired at a certain level, and regardless of the level desired or achieved, communication happens. Communication happens all the time, spoken, unspoken, written, observed, perceived, sensed, felt – yet often, most often, what was attempted was not received – something completely different was received.
The title of my book: True Communication is Not-Verbal.
