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.
