Friday night, Shelley and I went to the State Fair and watched a rock concert. There were several thousand people there and in the dark during the show I was looking around and wondering why I could not assume the viewpoints of the people that I saw. I was looking at them; I could see their bodies; I could see from their postures and faces how they were reacting to the music; but I could not see what they saw. I thought, “I’m gonna write a post on this and ask the question.”
I consider assuming the viewpoint of another to be a high ability and necessary for spiritual growth. What do you suppose is the reason we cannot see what others see? Or, Can you?
