It is very important to remember this model when communicating in cyberspace as the non-verbal cues are missing and they make up a very large piece in what we understand a person to be saying. We only have language to rely on. Misunderstandings can occur much easier, illusions can be created, people can be unnecessarily hurt. Swan

OK, we make werbal(written) statements and the nature of the mind and werbal communication indicates that we came to these statements by personal experience, or the influence of others experience we syncronised with. So we expect others to automaticallty understand our statements as we see/feel to be so. Our statements are missunderstood, because we do not know how that peson came to a certain conclusion, in short: i think it is important to give examples that will give an idea to others as how we arrived to understandings we hold on subjects of any kind.
I started this in my comments and statements as giving an exaple to what i am trying to communicate, just as a glimpse into that wast/limited something i find myself to be.
example: I am saying this, because i found the mind to be just a part of what i and others are.

I think the spoken word is very special for the fact of engaging so many channels at once, especially is something less formal than debate and more transactional than lecture. When we chat, we get all sorts of information from our reactions and responses in the moment (or could at least, if we valued the other as human rather than as a means to an end). I think writing takes much more courage since we only get feedback after everything's done and done, whereas in exchange we can check in with the other (eyebrow raises, small smiles, leaning towards or away) and customize the exchange in real time. I suspect a lot of opposition and obstruction comes from one party's apparent devaluation of the other. On the flip side, well it seems that with George W. as with Ronnie R., many who cooperate with the man point out how they disagree with the contents, but really like the man. So the question of intention arises very powerfully ... do I want to inform and empower the other? or enthrall?

I believe that emerging expressions of sacred art are going to open up new opportunities to allow for communications to bypass some of these spaces, and perhaps open more congruous connectivity. Your article is very important and my initial response was that the more congruous we become in relating with ourselves, the more that will show up being able to relate more effectively with others. Doing our personal work is essential to open up more harmonious relating with others. As within, so without. I feel that certainly, the cultural and environmental factors are the most important ones to look at and address, because even though we may become more conscious and congruous within, the ways we have learned to tie symbols and culture to our experiences, imprints us to view life within certain constructs and perspectives that are rich in diversity. I truly think art is going to assist us in bridging higher forms of communication in the coming days, and I am most excited to meet others who are interested in looking at how the tapestries of cultural experiences can be woven together through artistic expressions, via multimedia forms. I also trust that as we become more tuned to our souls and open in our multisensory awareness, that the doors to communications will open to more harmonious and more universal connections and expressions.

Indeed, I think that online communication makes it even more important to be congruous with oneself. In part because it is much easier to be misunderstood when there's only words on a screen. But at the same time I think it is also more likely that people will pick on the incongruities. Since there are only the words here, and we have some time to sit and read over them a few times, people will tend to look for, and find, the inconsistencies in what one is saying, and how it matches what one is doing. And we also try to pick up what is between the lines. Sometimes that is a total hallucination, but at other times it is that we sense that there really is more to it than what the person actually says. One way or another, the path towards more successful communication would be to be in alignment with ourself, and be honest about it, before we can begin to expect that others will just get what we mean.
31 May 2002 @ 13:44 by scottj : I would like to suggest a slightly
different model here, one in which we do our communicating with reference to a wellspring of shared experience that goes back to the beginning of time.
For me the idea that we are separate beings doesn't really ring true and I wonder at times that there really only ever is one person and all of us are that person. The onederous illusion is the one thing we are certain of, namely our identity, which is the only thing that really doesn't exist at all.
There is a story of a person looking out of their window on the most beautiful landscape imaginable. One day this person decides to paint the landscape on the window to preserve it for all time. Painstakingly over many days the person colours in every detail. And then when the last brush stroke is applied the room goes completely dark. No light can enter the room and the person is in total darkness unable to either see the landscape or their painting of it on the window.
I believe this is what we have been doing as a species over several thousands of years. Our knowledge is the painting on the window our understanding is the landscape outside. When knowledge replaces understanding the lights go out.
Now we are reaching a point where reality is an only half remembered vision from our tribal ancestory. Little wonder we have problems communicating! Somehow we have to dare to trust more than we normally do and see ourselves in one another. This is the only way we will get our I's back.

Your metaphor is similar to one I have used re: our beliefs, emotional memories and attitudes, as blocks built before us, stacked until we can no longer see out in front of us the immediate beauty before us in each moment. Similar metaphor. When we come as the Divine Child or Fool and are ready to step into the moment as our authentic self, willing to adventure into seeing and experiencing life anew, we open to seeing with new evolutionary eyes and senses that enhance our capacity to perceive and receive more of the abundance always present. As we become instruments for universal communications, we are able to receive and transmit moment to moment, and can be utilized as powerful channels for Source. I do see us as a multicolored spectrum of that Universal Self. I think that each of us, if we can take turns looking through the eyes and experience of each of us here with value and adventure, we will experience it all with richness and abundance. I feel that we are now stepping into this process more with these sharings about perspectives and building the house called NCN. Our newslogs provide the feeling tones for these energies to grow as our individual sanctuaries. These dialogues provide the livingroom sharings that bring about community building and those collaborative actions that can bring about the realizations of our individual and yet common visions.

That tragedy on Pakistan is constantly on the worsen simply because relief components and enable fall far except what important. More enable is seriously needed given that the potential for lots of fatalities starts off to loom.
