In the Avatar movie they say “I see you” when they say someone’s name in greeting. It’s an amazing idea. It acknowledges not only that the other person has arrived, but goes on to validate them and shows awareness of their struggle, their presence, their existence. There is nothing I would love more than to see this greeting in our emerging society. To look at someone and say ” I acknowledge that you are equal to me. That your life matters. That you exist in my gaze.” simply by saying ” I see you.” I want to make this a real thing soo bad it hurts.
I have tried this before with people randomly and…it’s amazing the reactions you get. Only a few are confused..the rest are too busy tearing up because they felt invisible and unacknowledged. They literally expect to be ignored. Gratitude is the most common reaction. It’s terribly moving and fills me with its quiet beauty. Such a simple thing love, but we dole it out like it’s a rarity..when the truth is, love has a massive return on its investment. Truly I grow richer each time I show love.
Dignity, integrity, and simple acceptance. These are my favorite traits.
The people in my life are my mana. Their presence in my life has taught me love, and loving. “I see you”
