“We were inducted into hearing sounds”. We don’t speak until someone has spoken to us. I really like James’ comment “It is the ‘social’ other which reproduces itself in and as the body of each of us, thus BRINGING INTO BEING the subsection of the ‘we’ which is a ‘ME’. I find it difficult to go from this “me” to the ME that is forgiven and loved by Another other. Transitioning to this ‘me’ might be easy to do from the head but not so easy to do so from the heart. And from the heart would be the only way to actually “live” as this forgiven and loved me. Maybe through contemplation its possible.
