Life is a web of relationships. Some are I-It relationships. They are utilitarian,pragmatic and self-serving. Such relationships are shallow leaving no nourishing deep roots of memory in our mind. I have had such relationships leaving no worth- remembering deep traces behind.
I cherish I-Thou relationships. It is a relationship between two genuine and deeply caring beings. It has openness, trust, and compassion. I have been blessed to have such deep relationships with my parents, family members, a few friends and my soul mate. Such relationships have made me a whole and wholesome person. Such relationships have been blessings to me and I am deeply grateful for such blessings.
May we keep our mind and heart open to cultivate such I-Thou relationships!
