nuggets… part 4

When I want you to experience the thoughts or feelings that I am experiencing I use words.  I take a thought, match it to a word by using the context I heard the word used in.  That personal, subjective experience of learning that word is my definition of the word.  I speak the word to you.  Not my definition, not my context, but the word.  You hear the word.  You take the word and match it to your context of the word.  You match the word to your personal, subjective experience of learning that word.

What are the chances when I use a word that you think exactly what I’m thinking?

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
