The Thou meets me through grace – it is not found by seeking.
The Thou meets me. But I step into direct relation with it. Hence the relation means being chosen and choosing, suffering and action in one; just as any action of the whole being, which means the suspension of all partial actions and consequently of all sensations of actions grounded only in their particular limitation, is bound to resemble suffering.
The primary word I-Thou can only be spoken with the whole being.
All real living is meeting.
I and Thou
