characters of the message,

are more potent than,

character of the messenger

    Oh so true. Until the message is "I love you" LOL

  • Fay Slimm.

    Your poetically wise observation outlines the power of words so finely Suresh -- its message states truth
    with short-line skill I have always admired.

  • Doggerel Dave

    Agreed – and therein lies the problem, doesn’t it Suresh. The message cannot be detached from the messenger, whose identity must always be taken into consideration.
    Had to think a little about this and for me it was rather early in the morning – your timing wasn’t up to much, mate……

    • SureshG

      Our inability to divest ourselves from the messenger, precludes us from unfettered understanding and the message remains obscure.

      I do appreciate your input

      • Doggerel Dave

        I think you are disagreeing with me, aren't you Suresh?
        The trouble is that the message itself doesn't exist in a vacuum. The message exists to be understood and utilised in some way. It is imperative that the who the why and the when be taken into account.
        Can you show me a particular message you have in mind?

        Yes - I would appreciate your further input.

        I've often tended to the other way - the character of the messenger more important than the characters of the message.

        • Doggerel Dave

          Orchi never in my wildest dreams would I believe I could agree with you so comprehensively.
          What is to be done about this?

          • SureshG

            His message has become an integral part of you. Does their meaning diminish in His absence? If yes, then everything becomes irrelevant, if no, then that’s your sacred text.
