Oooh! Oooh! I Discovered A New Analogy!

Okay!

You know how when you’re driving along, looking through the windshield, you say to yourself (pretend if this doesn’t apply to you, okay?!) “Damn, I can’t see shit!”

Well, who knows for how long icky, greasy, gunk has been building up on the inside of your windshield, and because you only clean the outside, you’ve become used to not being able to see well. And you think it’s normal! Until YOU CLEAN IT. And suddenly you can see clearly. And then you say, “Well, Shit! All I had to do is clean the inside and I can see just fine!”

Take that example and apply it to life. We perceive things that are clouded over by our emotions and preconceptions and filters. But when we take the time to consider another person’s point of view, this is cleaning the inside of our internal windshield, the world looks clearer and sharper because we’ve expanded our awareness.

Just a thought.
