There are no words…

Words are like boxes on perception,
they help us draw lines around shared experiences.
The failure in transmission of meaning and intention
is a difference in the association of experiences with words.

Rituals reiterate shared experiences,
creating trust in a mutual perception.
Understanding someone
is best acquired through shared experiences.
Your definition of I Love You …
Is different from my own.

Let us not fight over what we meant….
Let us expand our understanding of old words…
Let us orient ourselves for new words…
Let us merge our perceptions into one shared reality…
