I am doing #inktober again this year, where there is a daily prompt and you have to do an ink drawing and share it to Instagram.
Today’s prompt was ‘collide’ and that got me thinking that most humans ‘collide’ when communicating rather than meshing or melding or gliding together.
Communication, most of which is actually not verbal, is one of the things that humans are most challenged by, yet it is one of the main parts of our everyday life.
Communication is so ego driven from the filters in our mind that portray the story of ‘little me’ in our head and to the exterior world. This means that we rarely sense, see or hear the other person as we are so wrapped up in our story. The thing is, so is the other person, so we ‘collide’.
If we seek to understand and listen to other person, if we let go of our story and free ourselves from the ego, we can communicate with others without collision.
