The saints and sages tell us that the world is nothing more than the projection of our own minds. This means that we all create our own reality. So rather than assume that others know how we see things, we have to realize that every person comes to a situation with a different mindset.
If we wish to engage in effective communication, we need to know the places from which others are coming. The better we understand ourselves and others, the better we can communicate and avoid misunderstandings and “hard’ feelings such as fear and anger.
