Kinds of Power 4

Ideas need to be shaken before they can clarify. So I invite disturbance.

Expanding ideas comes first; widened practice follows.

To become conscious of anything we have first to get the words right, because words are loaded with implications.

Language can express every shade of emotion, that is precisely its beauty - and its power. Deprived of the sense of words our emotional expressions become primitive, physical and senseless.

The Chinese have said for centuries that people resort to physical violence because their words have failed.
