Impress vs Express
late 14c., "have a strong effect on the mind or heart, to stamp deeply in the mind," from Latin impressus, past participle of imprimere "press into or upon, stamp.”
late 14c., "represent in visual arts; put into words," from Old French espresser, expresser "press, squeeze out; speak one's mind" (Modern French exprimer), Medieval Latin expressare, frequentative of Latin exprimere "represent, describe, portray, imitate, translate," literally "to press out."
One involves pressing energy in, the other involves pressing energy out. Are you #impressed by what you see and taking it into yourself or do you #express your energy and let it out? Both have their value and significance but have different functions. If you are #impressed then it’s like having a vacuum suction on and #absorbing#information; in which case are you #aware of what you are taking in and who you are impressed by?
Both are energetic currents and move in different directions.
Do you have balance in between your impressed and expressed energies?
