Word is action

Unlike what is generally considered,
Word is not a static symbol, a listless and powerless repetition.


You cannot purposely talk unless you have this insight.

I like my friend Richard´s collocation: “pragmatic verbalization”.

The paradox of being verbally pragmatic while “conversing”, is to be versed in the art of impartial listening,
to be highly open and sensitive for the elusiveness of the other´s Now, as if you had no memory or experience of your own. 

Indeed, it´s about being able to decipher what the other tries to say beyond words… 

To speak to “the other” as if you never uttered a word before…
Almost an impossible task for the average mechanic Mind.

Verbal Renewal…Nothing repeated. Wording as a constant surprise…

Heeding the other, embracing the fleeing moment but empathizing with the predicament and
issues of the interlocutor,
being simultaneously aware how words can set you, and the other free…

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.
