Here's something I found today that is very sobering indeed because I know I don't live this way. And yet I would like to. And I truly do believe that this is the way we are meant to treat each other - are called to treat each other:
I wonder what would happen ifI treated everyone like I was in lovewith them, whether I like them or notand whether they respond or not and no matterwhat they say or do to me and even if I seethings in them which are ugly twisted pettycruel vain deceitful indifferent, just acceptall that and turn my attention to some smallweak tender hidden part and keep my eyes onthat until it shines like a beam of lightlike a bonfire I can warm my hands by and trustit to burn away all the waste which is notnever was my business to meddle with.
Perhaps we can all start by wondering.
