A “lesson learned the hard way” is one of those common phrases that seems a little strange after you stare at it a while. I was trying to think what a lesson learned the easy way would be. Or the fact that some of these things are more like skills acquired. I thought about commenting on one hard to accept truth that I resisted believing for years. It has to do with a fundamental difference between most men and women. It has taken me decades to deal with the fact that logic and intent counts for absolutely nothing. All my learned lessons from science and mathematics about cause and effect and the shortest distance from point A to B have to be suspended when communicating with the opposite sex. But I don’t think I’ll go there. I’d have to use logic to describe it and so the message might be lost on at least half the audience. (Note tongue in cheek.)

Turning from the altar of Logic is really just a subset of a bigger lesson anyway— the lesson of how to listen. In some ways, reliance on logic makes you think you don’t have to listen. Thought flows to thought, action to action to result, predetermined. A logical guy knows what the next thing said will be, or should be. Pretty stupid, I know, now. It just never occurred to me that there was more truth than logic out there. Truth you can hear if you listen. I know now there is a background whisper of universal truth. I’m sure it’ll take the 2nd half of my life to tune the hearing aid appropriately, but it’s clear that the entire answer guide is continuously broadcasting.
