If there is any doubt that culture strives to contain our perceptions, thoughts, and vocabulary, try this exercise.
Choose two words that you use often and go one day without uttering either. You will be amazed at your mind’s desire to continue its pattern, and you will have to catch your tongue often.
The two words I strive to avoid are: hope and wish. While these words are not obnoxious, they add little to one’s declaration.
The point of this experiment is to speak from an original place and to know the true meaning and power of words.
