Question: Why is it that when we discuss Integral Education and information in workshops in a simple language the idea is rapidly lost?
Answer: When you speak in a regular spoken language your inner emotions dissolve into sounds that awaken completely different emotions in each one of us, and each one draws a slightly different picture that doesn’t match its internal image.
Suppose that I have read a text by Baal HaSulam that brings up particular emotions for me, creates some kind of inner image that fills me. And now I hear this text from you in your own words and this causes an internal shift in me: The image that it described to me previously diverges from the image that I imagine when I hear you, like an unfocused lens or perspective when there are two objects that have not transformed into one. I feel dissonance from this.
Therefore I must delete my image, enter into your image and dissolve into it completely, flow together with your words as if they are mine. This is called integrating with each other. Without this we would never attain a common desire, mutual integration, and inner understanding.
