Usually, when we communicate with another person, we are driven by a kind of neurotic speed.


We must begin to allow some spontaneity to penetrate this speed so that we do not push ourselves onto the person with who we are communicating, do not impose ourselves, do not overload the other person. In particular, when we speak of something in which we are very interested, we do not just talk but we leap at the other person.


Spontaneity is always there, but it is clouded over by thought. Reach out and acknowledge that first openness and through that opening the basic intelligence will begin to function.
