This class of conversation is oftentimes erroneously interpreted to diminish the importance of the domain of concepts and beliefs in life in favor of (as if one is somehow "not as good as" the other) generating a context, a stand you take for yourself. Diminishing the importance of concepts and beliefs is both foolish as well as in denial of their essentiality. For example, you'd never have gotten to these Conversations For Transformation in the first place if, before you started, you didn't have a concept like "Conversations For Transformation are available on the internet".
The thing isn't to diminish the importance of concepts and beliefs. The thing is to distinguish the domain of concepts and beliefs, and be clear it's a different domain than who you really are. That it's a different domain isn't because I say it is. It's a different domain because that's what's so.
