The truth begins with two

If I just do my thing and you do yours we stand in danger of losing each others

and ourselves

*

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations;

But I am in this world to confirm you as a unique human being.

And to be confirmed by you.

*

We are fully ourselves only in relations to each other;

The “I” detached from a “You” disintegrates

*

I do not find you by Chance;

I find you by an active life of reaching out.

*

Rather than passively letting things happen to me,

I can act intentionally to make them happen

I must begin with myself, true;

But I must not end with myself;

The truth begins with two.
