Keeping Our Eyes Open

Updated: Aug 14, 2022

"The range of what we think and do is limited by what we fail to notice. And because we fail to notice that we fail to notice, there is little we can do to change; until we notice how failing to notice shapes our thoughts and deeds. R.D. Laing, Scottish Psychologist

I mentioned in an earlier post advice given around keeping our eyes open, suspending judgment, and being useful. In that post I wrote quite a bit about suspending judgment and I shared a bit about being useful. I wrote a small blurb about my personal obstacles to keeping my eyes open. However, MUCH more can be shared around the research related to keeping our eyes open.

Many positive consequences follow from learning to keep our eyes open. I will be sharing in several upcoming blogs the possibilities, some quite unusual.

According to some, keeping our eyes open and noticing others, naturally leads to compassion. Here is a less than 3 minute video about keeping our eyes open. We can get ideas and examples of keeping our eyes open as we interact with others.

How might we notice what we notice and what we fail to notice as we journey together to The Good Life? As usual, if you are a subscriber, you can send me comments by hitting reply to the blog email. Love, June
