I recently used this sentence "I enjoy being enlightened!" It wasn't until many hours later I had realized this could be taken entirely wrong in my intention.
1 . It could mean as I intended I love learning and being awakened by everyone and everything!
2 . I know everything and to rub it in your face I have the biggest ego to tell you I am enlightened!
So by switching it from a verb (humble and very grateful) that I used it as, to a noun (seems boasting not grateful) that I had no intention of switches the entire meaning.
I have seen this happen here many times but I wonder really when we read anything. Whether from here or a book, the newspaper anything really if we are coloring it by what we believe is being said. Also if so we could expand and try our best to see it from other possible perspectives of interpretation.
This approach may even give new light on many books we thought we knew and understood well.
This seems to show the limitations of expression vs the limitations of understanding. In other words since we can not communicate thought to thought it gets translated as best we can into words spoken or written. But then it has to be correctly translated back into the original meaning as thought in someone else's mind. This is kind of like breaking a code (again this could mean two entirely different things depending on what I mean by code) lol
it may not be an issue with the expression of the thought,
