After several months, he responds: Oh.
I love it! You have to love it! And to top it off it's an edited response. How many ways can I say oh... let me count them...
My favorite concept after reading this was the "intention" behind the actions. That's where I notice if I'm being devious or direct. Many times I'm about to say something or do something and there is a feeling that comes with it of being justified and right, but it doesn't feel the same as glowing and happy. It doesn't feel like a celebration of consciousness. That's when I like to pause before expressing. I'll notice the concepts in my head continue to grow like a flower, incorporating this and that, and when finally they are mature and ready to be expressed, there is a feeling of shear joy to them.
I think all expressions are perfectly valid, just like you can eat a green raspberry or a red and juicy one. I just like the flavor of the red and juicy ones! MMMMMMmmmmmm! They are sooooo good!!!!
