“If you reflect on this anecdote, you’ll discover that you can’t be giving unless you have a certain degree of sensitivity. And, sensitivity, in my view is the seed of empathy. You can give someone grief or you can give them joy, it all depends on how sensitive you are towards them, their life, their needs. So often, we take the presence of others in our life for granted. We joke around, we make fun, we share laughter. All of which is okay but when we do so insensitively, we don’t just hurt them but we hurt our own existence too. The spiritual being in us takes a hit when we choose to be insensitive”.
