Love’s a verb. Put yourself in their place. Try to be them. See how they see without judging. Feel how they feel without judging. Try to understand the world through their eyes as best you can.

Then continue that. There’s no real motivation I can think of, you just start. Practice.

You should become the worlds first agnostic spiritual guru, because I think you just said one of the most important things ever, and I have never heard a so called guru say what you just said.

I practice this a lot, a really good way to start is to wait in a line while some old lady keeps making a mistake with her EFPOST card and holding up the line forever. Instead of thinking how annoying it is to wait in line, try and think how hard it must be to be that old lady, the struggles she has to face every day.

Philosophers who undertook the  Eleusinian Mysteries described the experience as stepping outside of themselves.

I think true initiation is being able to move from the self and into the other, and it is through the other that you know your self.”

I RESPOND:
Thank you both so very much. A guru is something I thought about.  From the time I was a boy, I admired people who could speak and others would listen.

Yet, while I enjoy heartfelt appreciation, because I feel heartfelt appreciation, I don’t think I could do it for a large amount of people.  Yet also, I tend to resist getting too close to anybody at the same time.

So, neither too close yet not in groups: Where does that leave me?

Here, i guess.  I do ok when I jump from idea to idea, thing to thing, sharing and then disappearing and then reappearing again.

But when I am very involved in somebody, I can get lost and disappear.  When I am on stage and can see an audience of people, I want to feel something for each person as an individual and yet I can’t in that environment: it’s too many people at once…  so instead I get nervous, scared and uncertain.

I never gave talks in front of audiences but I have performed the piano on stage at different times and I find it very uncomfortable.

But you two REALLY really made me feel so good.  I can’t express how much in words.  Thank you so very very very much.  Maybe I will do something more one day with this.  Maybe I’m doing exactly the right thing for me right now, by expressing my feelings and thoughts online: I don’t know.  Could I stand on stage and say things?  Share?  Maybe someday?  I don’t know.  But maybe I will.  Your encouragement makes me think that maybe I can.  Maybe.  You inspire me.
