We are always pursuing meaning—beginning from the meaning of life to why is my CEO making a suicidal decision for the company?
The strategic direction you take your family, friends, and colleagues may not always readily understand. What it means to you may not always make any sense to others.
The search for meaning is akin to a blind person feeling the elephant. Maybe an elephant is just a giant thick blanket!
The gap between the expressions and what we want to express is knowledge. No one has total access to another person's knowledge. No one fully understands everything, so we can only try.
The next time you have sharp fluctuations of meaning in understanding anything or unpacking a situation, try inquiring for more knowledge.
Perhaps, it will contain the range of understanding.
