We learn about our five senses early in life. Sight, smell, taste, touch and our hearing. Easy to understand. Basic and simple.
Why is it that we never stop to think that the two senses that, most of us, need physical aides with at some time in our lives? Glasses and hearing aides) are the two that are most flawed (within us) even before we really need them.
Hearing clearly what was said and seeing objectively what is there are the most challenging of all our tasks in our lives. Our inclination to interpret things incorrectly and jump to conclusions are two of our greatest challenges to correct long before we realize we need physical help with both our sight and hearing.
