This is an era of polarity in so many arenas—politics, environmentalism, capitalism, socialism, science, religion, justice, and masking in the time of COVID-19 just for starters. In this atmosphere, it can feel downright dangerous to open one’s mind. We are more inclined to look around for evidence that we are right than open our ears and minds to another’s point of view to see if we can enlarge our capacity for new ways of understanding. Open-mindedness takes into consideration some of our other recent topics—risk and judgment. Try to notice until September 13 occasions in which you intentionally open your mind and those in which you either automatically or intentionally close it. Jot it down so you don’t forget it, then share it with us in the online sharing circle.
