 We have 5 sense organs. They are meant to be used as a set to understand our environment. In our hierarchical way of living the visual is placed at the top of the pyramid and considered the most important. As a result the other senses are underused and we don't get the full picture.
We also have 5 organs of external action. These also have to be used as a set. Here again we have given speech the most important place neglecting others. Is it any wonder then that we cannot communicate effectively.
I have tried to live a wholistic (some consider it simplistic). As a result i have been able to relate with the world joyously.
