A Short Random Thought: Knowing of vs. Knowing
Knowing of vs. Knowing
The woman or man that you meet---study, learn, and examine them to understand:
Where do they come from?
Where are they going?
What is their background?
What are their desires? Goals? Aspirations? Regrets? Secrets?
Mistakes? Likes? Dislikes? Wants? Needs?
What inspires them? Who inspires them?
What makes them happy? Sad?
Take notes of their actions. Moods.
Whether they are: Alone. With people. With you.
Consider their relationships with their parents, friends, social groups, and occupation?
Consider their relationship with children---own or another’s?
How do they care, respond, and/or treat that person?
These actions will perhaps be the same for you or what you bestow upon them/others.
The point: know someone by spirit not by name, status, class, size, color, or affiliation.
Knowing them beyond the width of their soul proves that their spirit speaks louder than tongue.
