Your practical suggestion is to make up a new word for an experience with no word in English. I'll try that, in fact I just did . "Danga" will be my new word for a feeling that doesn't come very often these days (at all) but was one which I often had when I was 19,20,21. A feeling of excited optimism, but much more than that. I can't describe it, so it will be called Danga. I'm not sure how that will change my perception. Quoting: chaol 183770
Excellent! Use it from now on your normal verbiage and you will increase your interaction with such experiences.
It works! I remembered another feeling; one of burning joyish feeling in the middle of my chest. I have called that "Zime", a bit of a spin off of sublime I suppose. The more I've spoken about it the more I am feeling it, surreal. I'm feeling right now! This is the feeling I have gotten in the past when I was being very creative, in fact, a little type of poem writing has resulted. Here it is:
We represent who we are, and choose to go what is not far.
For I is you and you are me and we all a part of the same happy family.
To be up is down and left is right but what to do when in flight.
Is there here? Is here there? Where am I when I am being fair?
Where is the bonding between you and me when I work for myself and not for thee?
How many lives end unawakend, their golden ladder climbed forsakened.
Their gold is not joy, their ladder is not theirs. Theirs is not mine, for I am Zime.
I am the Danga of past times, the feeling of youthful joy that burns by mind.
For I am you and you are me and we are all part of the same happy family.
