When you meet someone new, you’re not ever meeting some “one.” You’re entering a new world. Filled with all the people they know now, and all of the shadows of their past. You’re being introduced to lineages of customs and beliefs.
You are connecting to another world which didn’t exist in yours until you met.
"Meeting” is sacred ground. Respect and honesty tread well here. They help you to decide if this is a world you wish to continue to venture into or not.
