Seeing You as You

Seeing You as You

Finally free from enclosure in my own fears and worries, I can truly see you, not as an object or a means to my ends, but a genuine person with unique concerns, thoughts, feelings, and values.

I can appreciate you as having as much importance and value as my own self.

I can relate to you, not as ‘it,’ but as ‘Thou.’

I can see that we exist together in the same web of interbeing, the same mesh of interdependence.

I can see you as you.
