With kindness, care, and a smile when possible, knowing the world will still turn if you persuade no one at all.
Listen first. Then listen more. Hear beyond what’s said. Empathize. Then make your case with understanding.
Focus on truth, not ego. Let the light shine through your words to illumine and not blind others.
Tell a story that says it all. Reason works best with imagination's help.
Invite others to see things as you already can. Then accept their invitation to perhaps see more.
Raise your voice only when you're in front of a very large group and are without a microphone.
Suggest. Don't insist.
Respect people, regardless of what you think of their positions.
It should never be about winning, just discovering and sharing.
Seek Truth, Beauty, Goodness and, ultimately, Unity.
Use logic and love in equal measure.
