We keep hearing of how important it is to pay attention to body language, to make eye contact, to use and observe non-verbal clues for effective communication. We’re told how it is not just the words that we use but all the other signs our bodies display that make a conversation meaningful.
This is especially true for love…the words ‘I Love You’ are empty and meaningless if there are no actions to supplement the words, or if the follow through is antithetical to the concept of love.
Here’s a Haiku that, I hope, conveys what I’m trying to say in a better way…
Speak to me of love
let your eyes, your lips, your touch
do all the talking
Tell me what you think.
Do you notice when people say things that don’t resonate with what their bodies are showing you?
