The fruits that can’t be held « Dokodemo Diary

“(When you are silent,) you see it” or “You find it”. What struck me was that this “it” made it sound like a person experiences or practices silence and the result is immediate or even immediately visible. Of course, I think that it’s presumed by the speaker that it isn’t actually so simple. It’s just that the language is not sufficient so we rely on the presumption that the listener understands that there’s more beyond the words. Two things come up for me: one is the use and handling of form, in this case words or language; the other is the tendency, or danger, for people to not notice that they are handling a form at all.
