Secret Sideway Observation?
So unobservant was he, that he never observed that it is possible to observe others - from the side of his eyes. So, he would secretly observe others from the side, not knowing they could also secretly observe him observing them too - from the side of their eyes. While he was wondering what they were like, they wondered what he was wondering about them.
Fine If You Don't Compare?

Review: Response to "The Quest for a Perfect Teacher"
Excerpt: Every Day As Groundhog Day
To repeat a mistake once is to be reborn negatively once. - stonepeace
When we are mindful of others, we are focused on helping them to be fully present just by being fully present ourselves. Watch the body language of the people you work with. Working as a team requires that we understand how other members of the team function - their jobs and skills as well as emotional and spiritual strengths and weaknesses.
In the movie Groundhog Day, Bill Murray is stuck in a day that repeats over and over. I've always felt that this is a movie about the practice of mindfulness. At first the character played by Murray is completely self-centered. He reacts to this experience of each day repeating in annoyance and anger. In particular he gets angry with people who keep doing the exact same things, repeating their mistakes and habits. At some point he begins just to notice what people do, without becoming impatient. Then he sees that by really paying attention to the people around him he can understand and make real connections with them. By connecting with others he develops a renewed appreciation of his own life and beginds to achieve many of the things that had eluded him previously.
