Oft times, we find ourselves ‘ooing’ and ‘ahing’ at that which is displayed (or is it trapped?) for us behind the glass, wondering if whatever is on ‘the other side’ is just as wonderful and/or lovely and/or tasty as that which we admire from ‘our side.’ We may ask:
Is the glass always cleaner on the other side?!
Perhaps it’s in these rare moments that we are in the midst of being the most contemplative about our own inner beings. If not, then perhaps these are the exact times that should best serve as reminders for us to begin to undertake such a self-reflective examination.
