Not everything is always as it seems.

Much of the time, we only interact with the world superficially

We take things at face value; accept things as they appear

But the reality is, life has a certain depth quality

What you see on the surface, may not be a true reflection of what lies beneath

So it’s important to be aware

To be able to exercise a level of discernment

To be able to ask the right questions,

To remain curious

To be willing to deep dive into things if and when required

There’s a certain risk with accepting the most common narratives at face value –

The risk of being led astray.

Just because everyone believes it, it doesn’t make it right and just because everyone is saying it, it doesn’t make it true.

Sometimes the truth also lies dormant in what’s not said, in silence, in what’s omitted.

So learn to read between the lines

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
