What We Do Not Easily Talk About

I. Everyday experience and how thinking changes in small ways over time

II. Epiphanies: unexpected feelings, memories, insights, flashes, ideas, recognitions, explosions

III. Observable connections between abstract ideas and concrete experiences

IV. Questions, issues, unknowns that continue to interest us over time; ambiguities, tensions, issues that do not go away

V. Crafted truths, composed out of our own experiences and unexpected lessons

VI. Erroneous expectations as legacies from our parents and families

VII. What we fear about our own beliefs: that they may be wrong, that we have been unfair, that we must revise our ideas

VIII. Compassion, empathy, kindness
