What exactly is communication? Is it talking? Is it listening? Is it making eye contact or avoiding eye contact? Or is it silence?
Communication is not just about talking, listening, making eye contact or just being silent. Communication is all of these things AND more. Things like body language, tone of voice, choice of words, how the words are said, the context of the communication, and the energy that is present between the people. These things along WITH talking, listening, making eye contact or avoiding eye contact is what communication is all about.
What communication is NOT is texting and emailing. These things are not communication because the main parts of communication are missing. Such things as body language, tone of voice, the context of the communication, eye contact, and the biggest one, the energy that is present. Texting and email CANNOT convey the true energy of the communication. For this part of communication to be received accurately, people need to be near each other physically. And this part is missing in texting and emailing.
How many times has someone received an email or text and the wrong message was received because key elements of communication were missing?
I know we have all been on the sending and receiving end of miscommunication and all the issues it creates for all who are involved in the communication.
Just consider this as this is how our world is working now. And to me, it is not working well.
Namaste, my friends.
