Simple Living Global delivered a blog called REAL TALKING a year ago.
This is well worth reading and re-reading as there is much being said about the Talk stuff.
Here is the link –
The following blog is an expansion on Real Talking and invites the reader to take the first step when it comes to Honest communication.
What does it actually mean to Say it as it is
Think about young children and it is easy
Have we noticed our kids just Say it as it is
It is like they have no sensors and no agenda and nothing stops them expressing exactly what they want to say and it just comes out.
There is no calculation needed, no working it out and controlling what comes out of that mouth.
Most of us just love it when our child just happens to Say it as it is.
We find it refreshing, uplifting, inspiring, real, amazing, funny, beautifull and the rest…
So why on earth have we stopped doing that
What is the internal dialogue that caps that
What is going on in our head that blocks it
What is our intent when we don’t Say it as it is
What if we started to practice this ‘Say it as it is’
What if we observe our children to see their movements, so we can learn to Say it as it is.
What if we are really the same as children but somewhere along the life road we made the choice to stop the “Say it as it is” thing.
Have we conditioned ourselves into making sure we never say it as it is because we know it may cause problems and Complications.
Do we hold back from saying it as it is because we think it might hurt other people.
Do we worry about the backlash if we just Say it as it is to friends and family.
Do we get concerned in our workplace when we feel to just Say it as it is.
Do we have a job and security to think about so to Say it as it is never seems straight forward.
Do we hate saying it as it is because it is the Truth and others might stop talking to us.
Do we avoid saying it as it is because we just want to be nice and liked by others.
Do we feel a tension inside our hearts when we want to Say it as it is but never do.
Do we have lots of thoughts feeding our heads when we just want to Say it as it is.
Do we plan in our minds what we think we want to say instead of Say it as it is.
Do we feel bombarded with scenarios of the consequences if we simply Say it as it is.
Do we procrastinate when we know it is needed to just Say it as it is.
Do we mince our words and talk jibber jabber instead of just Say it as it is.
Do we go around the houses and never get to the point when all we had to do is Say it as it is.
Do we consistently play games with others instead of Say it as it is.
Do we put the invisible tape on our mouths as we are afraid to Say it as it is, because we really don’t want to offend anyone as we are too nice.
Do we grit our teeth and feel our body harden when we want to Say it as it is but just don’t.
Do we feel our body pulsing with frustration at yet another missed ‘Say it as it is’ moment.
Do we find ourselves getting Sick when we simply do not Say it as it is.
What if we were taught from day dot to use immediacy of Truth.
In other words, we immediately verbalise what we see and feel.
What if our world and its brothers – that means all of us would benefit if we just Say it as it is.
What if there is purpose and meaning when we simply Say it as it is.
What if speaking instant Truth would help us all to evolve and re-turn to who we truly are.
What if it is time to just SAY IT AS IT IS because our body is telling us so.
Could it be that Simple?
