Revealing a Sense
When you become aware of something, you gain a sense for it. You then must translate that sense into words if you mean to convey it through spoken or written language. It is the sense that is first born, and it is the sense that can never fit into words. Can words effectively lead one to a sense at all? The only way to gain a sense through another persons words is to take the words with you on your own path and test their application, yet be weary of how much trust you put into them. Even then, it will translate differently to each perspective. The words; life is beautiful, can not mean a thing to those who have yet to experience that from it. Yet it means completely different things to those who have. This leads me to believe that experience can be the only true teacher. We gain our senses through experience and rationalize with our words. Maybe the saying “come to your senses” can be applied when we become buried in words of contradictions where no sense can be made. There is no conclusion to be found, just an ever evolving sense.
