“The two words ‘Information’ and ‘Communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through.” Sydney J. Harris
This is our last week of ‘Purification‘ and I was thinking about how it applies to communication.
As I was filling up water bottles this evening at the sink using our water filtration system, I imagined the same system for our conversations.
Imagine being able to pour your thoughts, words and ideas into a ‘filter‘ that can trap all that muck! The only thing left is pure and clear communication.
We need to apply the same principles of cleaning our water to our communication exchanges. So much of our communication is muddled, murky, and misunderstood!
It wreaks havoc in our relationships. Creates conflicts in our workplaces. And, it leaves us feeling frustrated, shutout, and shutdown.
Instead of ‘Giving out Information’ – which tends to be a one-sided conversation, let’s focus more on ‘Connecting through Conversation‘.
Open your Mind. Clear a Path. ‘Purify’ your Intentions.
Then look out for a flow of clear, honest, communications!
