If you not part of the solution then you are very much part of the problem.
Human language has a vocabulary suited to our daily needs and functions: the shape of any human language maps approximately to the needs and activities of our mundane lives. But few would deny that there is another dimension of human existence which transcends the mundane: call it the soul, the spirit: it is that part of the human frame which sees the shimmer of the numinous.

Communication and relationships is everything and the breakdown of that is what has led to a lot of tragic things in our current society – homelessness and marriage breakdown, even early school dropouts, substance abuse.

If you understand why somebody is behaving the way they do, you’re more likely to be sympathetic. And that understanding really only comes from talking and perhaps even, more importantly, listening.
