Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?  Winnie the Pooh

Have you ever driven at dusk and have someone almost plow into you? They honk at you, you honk at them, a few less-than-kind words are mumbled, and you drive away with your heart pounding. Then while you are stopped at the next intersection, the car cross the way flashes its lights at you, and you realize that although you’ve been able to see where you were going, others could not see you because your headlights weren’t on.

Trouble brews when you are absorbed in your self-conscious awareness with the subjective assumption that others know what you are thinking and expecting. You must communicate where you are, whether you’re driving, cocreating or cohabiting. Not everyone is a mind reader so be clear in communicating what’s going on because even if it’s perfectly clear to you, it’s not to the rest of us.

Spiritual Contemplation: What are some of the results you created by assuming others understood you when they didn’t? What have you learned about clearer communication?

Affirmation: My light shines bright for all the world to see!
