"Because you can be sure, my dear Crito, that misuse of words is not only troublesome in itself, but actually has a bad effect on the soul." Phaedo

Voiceless Emotions

20150927_065513 bnc hue

We can all understand  our emotions as we are feeling them.  But it is only when we can articulate those emotions in words with complete sentences, where an honest appraisal creates a positive seal between the heart and mind, that we can own those emotions as our identity.  Without the fullness of appropriate words, internally and externally, the evaluation of self is incomplete. A void in the heart expresses the vulnerability of an infant, that in a pre-verbal stage of pure innocence, the mind is more psychologically impressionable because there is no way to, at the very least, identify strong emotions.

This is not easy to do. Even now as I write these words it is difficult to complete a full sentence. Continually, I to run into some nameless void and I can only find salvage in The Word.
