The light of reason is just a reflection

I feel cut off, as if there is a barrier in my throat when I am “in the head only”.

On the other hand: communication with other human beings is often over/ in this reflection. We can share a conclusion we arrived at by reasoning. Science works that way. We wish very much that politics works that way.

Yet: how much more rewarding in itself is the direct light of feeling! When we communicate with our pets there is no “yes” and no “no” – just pure being there.

And sometimes that even works with our friends.
