as to the one, so too, the other…

As a statement expressing our ‘aiming towards’ or ‘feeling for’ something equal between us…this one in the line above is as good as any other.

Speaking and behaving respectfully and caringly towards one another isn’t complicated…

And, couldn’t you have just guessed it…

“As” is the word indicating in the same measure and at the same time. The word does not define what the measure is…we each, individually, assess and choose…and the catch is, if we are to speak and act in a manner towards all equally…that speaking and acting shift begins within ourselves and how we speak and act towards ourselves…

…in the privacy of self…can we practice being equal, honest and kind…

…not putting our interests first…and not last either…equal is fair enough…ask any parent to split something perfectly equal amongst siblings…it’s not exactly a precise measurement…that takes way too long than the moment we’re in to even try to assess… 

Kindness is not enabling. It’s simply not ignoring nor blaming. It’s gently lending our loving energy to a moment that appeared in front of us…as a person or a situation…

And asked us to step in with it 

And as we do…the unexpected emerges…

When and as…there’s no explaining it. 

If you’ve felt it, you won’t be able to explain it either.

I’ll give it a word…it’s an instant of joy…or, if you prefer, a joyful moment emerges

As…

…we aim for being equals… 

…not more important…and not less either…

and as…you can feel there’s a time sensitivity element to equality…it’s very much like justice…when equality is delayed, it can also feel denied…so be mindful without feeling rushed…act or speak as near to the same time frame as logistically possible (that’s if logistics are involved). And it’s ok to go second without feeling last…when you’re treating everyone as an equal…

…that as I am looking out for me, I am equally looking out for you…

That’s the “As” I’m aiming my heart towards…as I try over and over to be your equal and to allow you to be mine…

…As a family human… 

if I don’t want to be alone ever…I might consider that you don’t want to be alone either…if I don’t want to live angry all of the time about everything, I might consider that you might not want that as much as I do not want that….

As…same as…as to the one, so too, the other…

As

The word shows up in many English translations of old timey holy recitations. Even in well known, but not so in vogue, prayers.

I’m simply indicating that the word and its meaning have been around for a while. ‘As’ has always meant ‘as’

As in, ‘what he just said.’
