Anyone who seeks real connected communication must be ready for a hurdle.

Most often we find ourselves longing to be understood, to let another know of what and how perceive. In so doing, we might be overcome with eagerness. We get caught up in our expressing we fail in communicating.

To avoid this situation, we must come into the interaction with an open heart and a great deal of courage, patience and faith.

An open heart enables us to listen, courage allows us to embrace the unpleasant about us and the other, patience makes us persevere, and faith grounds us to what is vital.

What is vital is the intent that when two people come together to communicate, they are sharing valuable pieces of themselves, glimpses of their Higher Being that seems to know all things.

Faith in this knowledge is that which is essential. It is that which tells us that everything is not for naught and that the gathering serves a purpose.
