Connotations 

07/23/2016

​A word or phrase 

holds various connotations. 

So when you listen or read, 

you inevitably interpret meaning. 

You do so with the aid of context, 

with readings of body language, 

and by your knowledge and experience. 

Often, you are wrong. 

Often, you do not listen, 

but hear through your own biases

hopes, and expectations. 

In these cases, you are only 

talking to yourself. 

When you do truly listen, 

nothing is the same

as what was

because all of now

is in it.
