"What separates actions from words?"
The ability to put those words into action.
I can write down "I am going to personally and physically explore the surface of Mars tomorrow", but the ability to do so will not be there.
Therefore, what I just wrote will become a piece of fiction tomorrow.
I can write or say things in such a way that will convince a woman to go out with me after she reads or hears it, then take action to try and make
that happen. But if she says no, then what I wrote becomes a piece of fiction and what I said becomes..........something else. Only in this case, my
ability to do that will be stifled by the woman....not me. So in this case, my ability to put those words into actions is dependant on the woman, not
me. Not if I did everything in MY power to make it happen.
"Can words be experienced without actions?"
Of course. If by "experienced" you mean "felt". People do it all the time. "Forever 17" by Tim McGraw describes a certain type of woman. When a woman
who is this way hears that song, or reads the words, she will be affected by it because, by and large, women like that feel as if they're the only
one's like that. She will feel certain emotions because of those words. She will experience those words without any action being attributed to them.
And to take that even further, if a man brings that song to her attention she will have no choice but to feel something for him as well. Again, those
words were experienced by both parties without ANY action being taken.
Does our decision to say things influence our decision to take action?
I believe it does. And that influence can go either way. You can say that you're either going to do something or not do something. Saying it or
writing it down can help you decide either way if you started out by being on the fence about it.
Of course these things only apply to people who like to think things out before doing something. You will always have the type who "Just Do It"
without any forethought.
Maybe the best way to answer your questions though is to point out that you can very easily over think things. Doing this almost always has a negative
effect over what you want to do. Only YOU know when it is time to stop thinking or writing about something, and do it.
Good Topic DG.
