I think the best relationships are based on a principle of mutuality. Mutuality is an exchange of persons, which says, “I am yours, and you are mine”. It says that if something bothers you, then it will bother me. Mutuality says I am open to your point of view, even if it takes me a while to understand. It takes a lifetime to perfect, but mutuality says that when you take a breath, my chest will rise. Mutuality says that whether you are near or far, I will live my life as if through your soul. Of course, this implies a natural desire to always know the other more deeply. In mutuality we never lose our sense of self, but our sense of the other is disciplined to always be greater. The measurement in mutuality is that each gives one hundred percent, and no one keeps score. Can you imagine a relationship where two people are committed to this principle?
