We (eventually) amplify that which is most salient to us.

We leak our secrets.

No need to pick others’ minds: all – in its Earthly irrelevance – is (eventually) known by patient mind.

No need to bang on closed doors, just wait till they swing open on their own.

(But, of course, it’s okay to issue a tactful knock of invitation, now and then).

The first 99% of communication is patience.

The other 99% of communication is compassion.

The remaining 1% of communication is language.

Strange math, indeed…
