When I express my experiences – in words or writing – it seems has several effects.
- Expressing it makes it more real. While I express it, I deepen my exploration of it.
- Putting it out in the world allows me to let go of it. I don’t need to hold onto it anymore. I can empty the cup and allow it to be filled with something else.
- Expressing it makes it abundantly clear how incomplete the realization is, as well as how incomplete the expression of even this limited realization is.
