REPRESENT.

OA_16_EdUncategorized

People create personal statements about their life, usually in professional settings, to chart the choices they make about their life path. Their personal statement becomes an open letter to represent oneself.

So, the representation is there mainly to represent and interpret (communicate) the message. This concept also works in everyday life when people know what they stand for and radiating the truth of who they are. When this happens, we must be in a frame of mind that’s open, alert, sensitive and centred. Because representing what you stand for has its undercurrents.

The dynamics of representing are in main ways. Firstly, looking at how some people are easier to read what they represent. They make their representing (as distinct from entities) provide a convenient way to represent a different notion of purpose. Whereby the main focus is in terms of the purpose served rather than of the cause by which they arise. For example, the undisputed, logic, automatic representation of a fruit is food and the representation of a jar is to contain (i.e. to be the instrument of containment). These entities are artefacts, which typically have a clear purpose.

Moreover, the sense representing have its own types and instances; an instance of a representation which requires a corresponding person or entity. Whereby the correspondence is established through these two, the ‘played-by’ and ‘purpose’ relations. When a person or entity is related to a representation, it potentially makes the two ‘played-by’ and ‘purpose’ composed together. A representation that is both a ‘played-by’ and ‘purpose’ is much better that a representation that separate the two. By separating a ‘played-by’ and ‘purpose’ relation, this is what happens.

• The ‘played-by’ composition represents a role that is duly based on availability and represents that a person is actually participating in an event. For example, when a model is participating in a modelling event, the contestant’s role for the modelling event is played-by the model.
• The ‘purpose’ composition represents a role that the person or entity is intended to play but says nothing to indicate about whether it is actually going to do what it represents. For example, the purpose of a hammer is to be the instrument of a hammering event, which is true even when the hammer is not participating in any hammering event. But when a representation is both a ‘played-by’ and ‘purpose’, the result is beyond doubt.

This realisation can be a wonderful learning experience. An experience that sometimes internalise what it represents. A learning experience that is more about knowing how things are presented by knowing the inner self. This span makes the learning adventure a major pursuit in and of itself, undertaken for the purposes not for recreation or excitement. But taking time to explore the foundations of what makes you tick. All this sums up the tell-tale that is instrumental to what makes the source of our motivation more relevant. Even so, being aware of what we represent does not only ignites the purpose but will improve and help us appreciate learning the process. In addition, when we play our roles in representing a particular life directs our chosen paths with answers to stand knowingly. At the centre of it all expanding our cognition and enabling us to find depth of information through the experience. This often results in asking questions around the subject, and even coming up with far reached answers.

Somehow, we all are representing something or someone. It is good to take note or be thinking of those things we represent. This may take a lot of courage. If you keep this at the forefront of your mind, you are likely to represent with accountability and keeping it real with your motives purely to the task. Sometimes what we represent is not for a lifetime. Hence, you might be working on what you are currently representing. Again, to some it’s about what they wish to represent.

What you represent is not only about the message you’re putting out to the world right now. It could be what your heart instructs to the things the outside world don’t know about yet. At this stage what you represent cannot be relied on someone or something else. This is when we bring our power back home. Because when we represent to the world, the audience is outside. And when we represent to the inner person the audience is inside. This can be so awakening.

What is involved? And what are the benefits of incorporating it into your internal communication strategy? It brings a better understanding of personal overall philosophy. A philosophy that will tell your story to inspire individuals from a place of belonging. And using your environment to build a storyboard about where it all began. So, knowing what you represent by itself builds a philosophy that is unique.

But what happens when what you represent doesn’t make sense to the outside world? If the world didn’t get, the response is, ‘’Erk! What is that?’’

Whilst your inside world understands and you do know whether what you represent is something new born, toddler or developed. Remarkable – that is. The early stage indicates the process, just learning to walk around unsteadily. Then develops to the stage when old enough to stand colourful in the marketplace. All the same it’s a journey!

So, the case of representing one of the questions is whether the audience outside or within, the same applies to the heavenly side. And when you find your footing (purpose) to stand, stand still.
