You know, when we put our ideas of someone in a lock-box, then we relate to our ideas of that person.
We don’t allow them to be who they are
in any given moment.
We demand that they be who we say they are.
When someone is in my lock-box, they can’t change.
I won’t let them.
When we are in someone’s lock-box,
we can’t change in their eyes
We can’t be the real and ever-new person we are in each moment to them.
That lock-box may be full of the best qualities, the purest intentions, but it still kills.
Often we put God in a lock-box, one we have been taught to use to lock God down.
Only we can break it open!
