If self-awareness carries the assumption
that we see ourselves clearly; can it not also carry the assumption
that we see ourselves dimly, with blind-spots? Like looking into
the reflection of a worn mirror.
Would not this realisation move us to feel compassion for others –
seeing them blinded by blind-spots?
What if this new self-awareness led us to be humble?
Would not this kind of humility be truly humane?
