Being Outside of Ourselves
Wholly stepping outside of ourselves is questionable. I am not sure if we ever really do this, though we like to think that this is possible and that we are able to do so effectively--you know, that walking in the shoes of others thing. But what I know for sure is that in merely pracitising stepping outside of ourselves we hear others better and through this hearing we ourselves are challenged and changed and are made better. I am humbled when I hear others in this way and in so doing hear myself.
