Unquotable Quotes #2o…

(A paraphrase, really…)

A friend: You know, for someone who is supposed to be an expert communicator, you’re not really getting your point across…

Me: I know…  I mean…  umm… Yeah…

Right!…

Fade to silence…

  1. How does one communicate ideas our language isn’t evolved enough to describe? Once upon a time, individuals who wished to communicate ideas the sheeple could not accept, wrote fairy tales and parables and even then, they did not expect to be “heard” in the true sense.
    …Mt. 13:10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to
    the people in parables?”
    Mt. 13:11 He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of
    heaven has been given to you, but not to them.
    Mt. 13:12 Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an
    abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be
    taken from him.
    Mt. 13:13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they
    do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.
    Mt. 13:14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “`You will be ever
    hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but
    never perceiving.

    • Yes. Such is so evident these days. More and more silence appeals to me. And then something (could be anything), forces new words from me, still trying to communicate. I fail, of course, but I can’t yet totally stop trying. Perhaps that is my cross to bear…

      • Rosaliene speaks of having taken on the language of poetry. This means there is a language any of us can find, or develop, to use to express the ineffable. You will find your language, methinks, if you don’t beat your head against to wall too much. Let it come, gently, quietly… like baby talk. One word, one gesture, one sigh… and you will speak, unblocked and openly. The biggest problem these days is just too many words of too little meaning that leave us empty and hungry.

  2. Communication eh? And the door swings both ways.
    Someone can be very eloquent and supply reasoned arguments, but if the audience does not like the message they will not listen.
    Not a new problem of course, but in this age where everyone has access to a wide audience….Just try talking sense on the big social media sights and see where it gets you…..
    Long may WP prosper
