We don't look at each other. I mean we don't really look at each other. We tend to look at others out of necessity, looking for something specific...an answer, a look, a confirmation. Yet, we don't look at each other just to see what is there, to know what is there. This is about looking from a witnesses point of view in which there's no judgment, just observation...in which there's no what's in it for me.
An inspiring life is about looking at things with an eye of wonder. When you slow down and pay attention to what you are looking at, you not only discover newness in the thing or the one you are looking at–you learn about yourself. As you start to notice, patterns about the way you see others and the world around you become evident. You may surprise yourself when you become aware of how you think about certain things and certain people. Looking, then, becomes an opening into self-discovery.
