Understanding is different from Knowledge

 

Understanding is deeper than knowledge. There are many people who know you, but very few [truly] understand you. – Nicholas Cage 

Is it part of the human condition to be misunderstood? Rarely do I find myself in the company of anyone whom I feel understands me for more than a fleeting moment, if that.

Yet, I often feel that I can see the motives and emotions of others, even as they work to suppress  and bury it all deep within themselves. 

It is an odd place to be, to have such empathy, yet to feel so misunderstood myself. So I write, sometimes ad nauseum, connecting more deeply to myself; becoming a master at understanding the inner workings of this incarnation called Tiffany.

With each dive, I resurface with a greater understanding of where I have blocked against understanding; against love; against my true self. There is still so much to explore and see. A sea filled with great treasures, potential and mystery.

For how can I expect you to understand, accept and love that which I myself cannot? The practice here is love and acceptance, through which greater understanding is acquired.

Namaste.

    1. Michael, Thank you for sharing your understanding =)
      I’m enjoying exploring your site. It’s bringing up some interesting insights for me. Probably one of several things recently that is causing me to question monogamy. Funny how we can each spark something in someone without ever having met in person.
      Namaste.

      1. Thank you for sharing this Tiffany. I wondered if you had a chance to browse a little. 🙂 I look forward to reading and learning more from your journey as well. Monogamy is something I will write about a lot. Well, lack of monogamy I should say.I believe in a deep sensual connection but also feel like bringing in another person for naughty fun can add erotic tension and pleasure…extending the feelings we experience when love is new. I have a post coming up on this soon…hope you’ll give it a read. 🙂

      2. The monogamy post goes live on Thursday morning. It’s lengthy at >900 words. I may try to pare it down further, we’ll see. It seems the longer between scheduling and posting, the more I change things as I, too, evolve. I’ll do my best to keep an eye out for your post.
