Being With You

November 26, 2012

Because it is not about what you do, it is about where you are coming from. How you relate.

When you face someone poor, destitute, broken, in need – how do you see him? How do you relate to her? As a victim needing to be saved? Someone less fortunate, less capable? Do you see a person that depends on you?

Or do you see a powerful, responsible human? Do you see a person whose choices you honor and respect? Do you see a peer? An ally?

Do you see an equal, a partner when you look into his eyes? When you do, you know what is there to be done for her. If there is anything to be done at all.
