shalom :)

thinking just is ...

what ever you put after the is .. is your own autogenic metaphor to what ever
you experience from thinking..

and because it is a subjective experience, your metaphor to it can mean
something to you, and something totally different to some1 else..

if you don't know for yourself what is your exact metaphor for thinking..
then you can do some exploring..

(all of this is a new way of thinking for me... after finishing the 7days
symbolic modeling and grovian metaphor therapy (www.devco.deamon.co.uk  for
articles and explanations about it and about clean language) ..
and it sure gives a total different view on ppl and their systems!!!)

take care and stay happy
Mik.
