I am sitting on a bench in the park. At the neighbouring bench, two mothers with babies are having a conversation. One of them is definitely dominating in the dialogue. She talks a lot and very much aloud too. She also have a hoarse voice to boot. This lady's gabbiness is a sure indicator of disbalance in her throat chakra. I go deeper in my reasoning. Loud voice - agression, ego, fear...of what ? Of not being accepted ? Or heard? Upon reflection quiet voice is also agression,ego and fear but directed inwards.
Very few people have the skill to be engaged in a normal and pleasurable conversation. To be in perfect balance with the ambient world and themselves. To use that pleasant and measured pitch of their voices not to encroach others' teritory and not go in the other extreme by talking too quietly thus giving their listeners a hard time trying to hear what they have to say. To know and be able to await answers after their HOW ARE YOU ? To make others feel really heard. To weild the art of obtaining and resending the energetic ball of words. To joke... These, so necessary , islets of life energy.
I watch the two ladies, the other one, who I hardly heard utter a word, is biting her lips. She glances at her watch too often. I can feel her suspense. I feel compassion for her. Cos after all she has been attacked by a Komatsu buldozer in human flesh which sweeps away everything on its way, only to be heard, at any rate.
I sit on the bench for not more than 5 minutes. For as long as to be inspired for this blogpost
Then I make my way to a quieter place. I ask myself WHY PEOPLE DO NOT STOP GIVING AWAY THEIR ENERGY TO THOSE AWAFUL, EGOCENTRIC VERBAL EGOISTS?
