Seven words

Postby Lily » 16 Feb 2011, 18:52

don't know if this has been posted before, maybe even by me, but I quite like the concept (I have no idea about the people behind it, I just like the words and associations that go with it)
No is about Boundaries Identity Choice Truth

Hello is about Attention Openness Exchange Communion

Thank You is about Appreciation Valuing Giving Heart Essence

Goodbye is about Realization Appreciation Completion Moving On

Please is about Vision Intention Cooperation Prayer

Sorry is about Responsibility Remorse Repair Release

Yes is about Permission Acceptance Agreement Surrender

That pretty much sums up my "must know" words when I visit a non-English speaking country as well.

Danke!

I've been thinking to align these with the festivals, which could be turned into a whole year's cycle of work. Of course the eighth is missing so I chose silence. Also, I think some of the concepts (whichI made to be red) fit better to the individual festival.
