“I MAY NOT REMEMBER WHAT YOU SAID OR WHAT YOU DID, BUT I WILL REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE ME FEEL,” what a beautiful and powerful quote from Maya Angelou. The ability to move people’s SOULS is a very effective way of COMMUNICATING. As mentioned in previous posts MEMORY and EMOTIONS are in the same part of the brain, the limbic system. The rational part of the brain is the cortex.
One’s WARMTH and COMPASSION do not have to be learned or cultivated, it is within most people naturally. There are those that are afraid to demonstrate their natural COMPASSION for fear of appearing VULNERABLE. We all have to remember, to appear VULNERABLE is a definite sign of STRENGTH. MAKING SOMEONE FEEL NECESSARY, TO FEEL WANTED, TO FEEL LOVED demonstrates the power of your presence. As Maya said it is NOT WHAT YOU SAID OR DID, BUT IT IS HOW YOU MADE A PERSON FEEL.
THE JOURNEY OF FEELING is what the CIRCLE philosophy demonstrates; WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND STRONGER. The FEELING that one presents to another comes back with more fullness, more depth. The MEMORY is connected to the EMOTION. Hopefully we can ALL take advantage of this wonderful limbic system.
Thank you Maya Angelou, I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW I FELT AFTER READING YOUR QUOTE. SO UPLIFTING, SO ENLIGHTENING. THE JOURNEY OF FEELING HELPS TO BROADEN ONE’S KNOWLEDGE.
TAKE CARE, STAY WELL, STAY HEALTHY
