Just a thought that has been rattling around in my brain today:
I used to drive a Ford Windstar, a pig of a van that was built on a truck chasis and steered like a cow Anyway, this van had the most awesome blind spots, whole sections on either side where even side view mirrors couldn't help you to see what was in the back quadrant. I can't count the number of times that I was taken totally and completely by surprise to try to change lanes and get honked at vehemently by some small vehicle blythely hanging out near my back pannel
I've also found that I have spiritual blind spots. Things that my intuition just don't pick up on. Somone can point something out to me - hand it to me on a silver platter - and I just shrug and say "this doesn't apply to me, I would never do this" or "this could never happen". And then, wouldn't you know it, I find myself taken completely by surprise by the very things that have been pointed out to me.
One way I've found of discovering what my spiritual blind spots are is in becoming aware of those blind spots I am pointing out to others. Sort of the moat and beam effect, only this is more like a moat and moat (or beam and beam, given the situation). Its as if there is some part of me that recognizes that this or that thing is lacking in my life, but it can't come out and admit it, so it points it out in someone else's life.
This ad goes away when you register.
So what are your spiritual blind spots? Or, more to the point, how do you recognize/discover what is riding in those blind spots if you can't see them clearly yourself?
