A blessed encounter

We were vividly engaged in a great discussion.

Such incredible relief: for once, there was no misunderstanding, there was no need
for explanations – he understood it all, as if we were each other´s mirror.

At some point the conversation froze. We were both Silent. Awaiting.

I looked at him.

I almost heard his thoughts. He was solemnly pondering. Appropriating what I had just told him. Internalizing my earlier expressed insights. The echo of my words were unmistakably clicking into him, creating a new space between us.

The air became so soothingly alive.

It was almost palpable. He was healing. In that very moment.

He was giving himself to himself.

And as he was accepting my gift for him, I felt automatically
how he literally was giving myself to myself too…
