Understanding

Without a doubt the worst habit is unawareness. I meet more people who intentionally make themselves unaware of things around them than those who missed things in the mix of chaos, fatigue, and stupidity.

Unawareness, those who are tone deaf to the obvious needs of their own wrongness and those who hide behind their professional titles, who hide behind their electronic devices to avoid connecting with people face to face.

From Tomorrows World Magazine: We’re losing social skills the human interaction skills, to read their body language, their nonverbal communication, how to be patient until the moment is right or press a point.

Too much exclusive use of electronic information dehumanizes what is very important part of of community life, living together and understanding who and what we are about.

The unaware, the conscientious impaired, seek half-truths, ignore information that can help them, and put their heads in the sand when it comes to facing off with reality. Staying in a state of unawareness is life a slow gnawing cancer to the soul and a sign of a true lazy coward- Shannon Alder
“The words understanding, empathy, humility, & compassion would all be under the banner of having maturity. With all of them you need to access your total self in order to be of some soothing affect or help in solving a problem.  So when you are listening to somebody, then you are listening not only to words, but also to the feelings of what is being conveyed, to the whole act of it not just part.”- Jiddu Krishnamurti
“With understanding we must relinquish our comments & opinions and engage as an active listener. We are required to observe way more; holding off on our knee-jerk judgments & weigh the facts. Not only is this characteristics of an understanding person but a mature grown up. Rather than thinking in terms of good & bad it is more helpful to think in terms of conscience and unconscious, aware & unaware” – Joan Boysenko

FIRST UNDERSTAND YOURSELF THEN SOMETHING BIGGER THAN YOURSELF

Going through the process of understanding yourself requires a very pain staking process of not only looking in the mirror at who you are and what you are doing but seeking someone you can share this process with Most misunderstandings in the world could be avoided if people would simply take the time to ask,”What else could this mean?”
-Shannon Alder

Lets Finish Up Here…Understanding leads to insight & insight leads to living a discovery-in-depth life.The Bible says this about understanding…The purpose of a man’s heart are deep water’s but a man of understanding draws this out Proverbs 20:5 AND HERE’S MORE…A wise man will hear, allow himself to think and take it in and increase learning, a man of understanding will attain council, seek guidance no matter what their position in life is.
And my favorite from Proverbs 3:5 …Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.

Lets Step Into Our Lives Everyday With Understanding!
