The Power of Language

The Power of Language

February 14, 2020

We experience and learn so much as we travel across our journey that there are times when we don’t even realize we are learning and deepening our understanding of our experiences. Much of it comes unconsciously from what we are doing and who we are doing it with. We often cannot even describe in words what it is we hear or state but for sure we understand it because it is in the context of our lives that it happens. The elegance of this circumstance can become explicit from time to time when we are asked the question - what does that mean? Often we hesitate, although knowing what it means but unable to describe it. Like an idiom that perfectly describes the situation but its meaning coming from the context and less the words. And so our curiosity gets the best of us and we go to find out what does it mean, explicitly, and we find ourselves satisfied by what we hear, the meaning defined in words.
