When your walking down the street or in a public place, do you ever wonder about the people around you? Do you ever wonder about their life, such as, are they married, do they have children, where are they going, etc. I do this alot. Do you?

Yes, sometimes...especially when in a melancholic mood...or when someone attracts my attention by his (her) look. We tend to care about people around us...and sometimes we even get in contact with people just to ask them about their life, don't we? That's a subtle form of altruism, which is really rare now, when everybody tries to only look after themselves and mind their own business... As I told you...there is a state of mind in which you have to situate yourself...to feel such a curiosity: usually when you're bored, when you have no troubling thoughts, when you had an accomplishment and are happy and 'opened'...and when you're in a melancholic state (of almost day-dreaming)... And we also wonder about someone else's life when we unconsciously perceive something different about that person...

I love people watching I can sit for hours just watching people deciding who they are and what their lives are like, I think more people should take the time to just sit and watch.

Yeah sometimes I do. I think about ... things like.. Wow I wonder what all these people around me are thinking.. or what they plan to do today. I always think about this stuff.. it just makes you wonder... But usually I think they are all thinking.. about the ultimate cheese burger from Jack in the Box.. and then I go buy one.

I do wonder about people sometimes. Usually it is when God lays it on my heart though. You sometimes have to wonder what the lady in Walmart is struggling with and why her life is so bad. it's weird, i know, but there are lots of times when i'm out that i'm led to pray for someone i don't even know because something is going on with them or they are screaming for help and no one can hear them. i wonder sometimes if people are really happy as they seem to be or are they just putting on a front for the world to see and then they go home to be unhappy. There are a lot of people out there that need to feel love and safety and they don't. I'm in no way saying that is all i wonder about, there are many good things i wonder about such as do they have kids running around playing at home or are they happily married. the world has so much wonder in it and you wonder daily about a lot of things. God bless
