Speaking Clear, Speaking True

March 2, 2007

When someone wants to confuse you, they use jargon. Mumble-jumble. An appeal to a textbook. You just want to know why, and how it works, and they come back with a whole bag of garbage.

The truth is ever simple.

It is spoken with the clarity a child can understand. A story that moves from one simple place to another, a step by step process.

Experts know a lot about nothing.

The holistic view is what separates out true understanding. Seeing all the pieces, all the consequences. How it fits together, and being able to communicate this.

Simple, precise, elegant language. Being able to communicate and empower. Painting a vision to help you help yourself. Words that live on in the palace of time.

Speaking clear, speaking true.

There is no Monopoly on Truth

February 7, 2007

There is no monopoly on truth,
it’s just out there,
waiting to be grasped,

by whoever’s floating by.
just ask the question,
and there is the answer,

groaning through the mist.
Through science, through the arts,
man confronts each day,

the sunny nature of truth.
A seeking, a search
a long mystic glance,

a meditation on all that is.
All that is, was, and will be
the timeless truths of man

out there, in here, waiting.

You nod your head and say “Yep, that’s true”
