in seeing the similarities and differences

In conversation, what comes back to us is not precisely what we said but only similar; in seeing the similarities and differences, the new is born. As each of us meets that new thing, even more new is born, not least of which is each of us. The persons we meet are brought forth each instant; so too the persons we are. Indra’s net sparkles. The persons are changing before our eyes, ears and hearts. It is a flow. Most important are the threads, ever moving, when they touch sparking. The threads are not things but accustomed pathways, made real only by thoughts pulsing and blowing through and around.
