Beyond words | Healing communication

“Think vibrations. Think waves. You do not need words to communicate. All of nature, all animals, can and do communicate wordlessly, humans included. Release your dependence on the spoken word, the written word, the conceptual word, and aim to know what is being communicated. Pay more attention to feeling and knowing. You can communicate quite well with those who do not speak your own language, for in fact you are all radiating the same basic language: light. In the beginning was the Word, but in what language was it spoken? Light. Vibration. And what is the highest vibration? Love. The more you turn up the love light within yourself, the more you will simply know.” – Sanaya

“The total number of minds in the universe is one. In fact, consciousness is a singularity, phasing within all beings.” Erwin Schrödinger, Nobel Prize-winning quantum physicist

We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles. Meantime within man is the soul of the whole; the wise silence; the universal beauty, to which every part and particle is equally related; the eternal One. And this deep power in which we exist, and whose beatitude is all accessible to us, is not only self-sufficing and perfect in every hour, but the act of seeing and the thing seen, the seer and the spectacle, the subject and the object, are one.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Deep down the consciousness of mankind is one. This is a virtual certainty because even in the vacuum, matter is one; and if we don’t see this, it’s because we are blinding ourselves to it.” – David Bohm, quantum physicist

The ethical implications of our fundamental connectedness are profound. Because of our intrinsic oneness, health can never be merely personal, and neither can illness, poverty, or hunger. The unity we share requires a recalibration of the Golden Rule from, ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,’ to ‘Be kind to others because in some sense they are you.’ On this realization, our future on Earth may depend.” – Larry Dossey, MD

“The notion of a separate organism is clearly an abstraction, as is also its boundary. Underlying all this is unbroken wholeness, even though our civilization has developed in such a way as to strongly emphasize the separation into parts.” – David Bohm and Basil J. Hiley, physicists

Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.” – Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“As a scientist, I utilize my mental-intellectual mind aspect—through which I approach truth as something objective. …As a student of mysticism, I utilize my subconscious mind…and my spiritual superconscious aspect, approaching truth through my emotional-intuitive capacities. These can be dimensionless and formless and they can be just as real as the objective physical level of reality.” – Hank Wesselman, Visionseeker

When we view ourselves in space and time, our consciousnesses are obviously the separate individuals of a particle-picture, but when we pass beyond space and time, they may perhaps form ingredients of a single continuous stream of life. As it is with light and electricity, so it may be with life; the phenomena may be individuals carrying on separate existences in space and time, while in the deeper reality beyond space and time we may be all members of one body.” – Sir James Jeans, astrophysicist

“Sometimes a single word changes everything. Robin, a local teacher, asked her colleagues if they had advice on how to cook a wild turkey. Her husband had hit the bird with his truck and he had brought it home for his wife to prepare. Several colleagues offered advice and recipes, but one bystander pointed out that the bird was in fact ‘road kill.’ Robin prepared the turkey according to the recipes, but she couldn’t eat it. Once it had been named as road kill, everything changed.” – Peter Johnston

A frightened person can start to heal the moment they hear calming words. The words also make a big difference in how they remember a crisis event. The right words can help a person remember the crisis, not as the worst thing that ever happened to them, but perhaps as a time when people came to their aid, or maybe even a time of their own courage. Because of that reframing, they often don’t have to experience post-traumatic stress. That is a stunning outcome.” – Judith Simon Prager

“From time to time, sit close to the one you love, hold his or her hand, and ask, ‘Darling, do I understand you enough? Or am I making you suffer? Please tell me so that I can learn to love you properly. I don’t want to make you suffer, and if I do so because of my ignorance, please tell me so that I can love you better, so that you can be happy.” If you say this in a voice that communicates your real openness to understand, the other person may cry.

“That is a good sign, because it means the door of understanding is opening and everything will be possible again.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

If there is no communication then there is no respect. If there is no respect then there is no caring. If there is no caring then there is no understanding. If there is no understanding then there is no compassion. If there is no compassion then there is no empathy. If there is no empathy then there is no forgiveness. If there is no forgiveness then there is no kindness. If there is no kindness then there is no honesty. If there is no honesty then there is no love. If there is no love then God doesn’t reside there. If God doesn’t reside there then there is no peace. If there is no peace then there is no happiness. If there is no happiness—then there is conflict because there is no communication!” – Shannon L. Alder

“When a person realizes he has been deeply heard, his eyes moisten. I think in some real sense he is weeping for joy. It is as though he were saying, “Thank God, somebody heard me. Someone knows what it’s like to be me.” Carl R. Rogers, psychologist

How it is that animals understand things I do not know, but it is certain that they do understand. Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it. Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak, without even making a sound, to another soul.” – Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess

“Thousands of years ago, man lived in harmony with the rest of the natural world. Through what we would today call Telepathy, he communicated with animals, plants, and other forms of life–none of which he considered ‘beneath’ himself, only different, with different jobs to perform. He worked side by side with earth angels and nature spirits, with whom he shared responsibility for taking care of the world.” – Benjamin Hoff, The Te of Piglet

How much better might human communication be if words were as precious as diamonds? If each of us were allotted only 100 words per day?” – Jerry Spinelli, Today I Will: A Year of Quotes, Notes, and Promises to Myself
