Right Relationships

[Original in German]

Considered in the light of divine metaphysics, what do our human relationships represent? All fatherly, motherly, friendly thoughts and deeds on the human plane are indications of divine Love's qualities and the perfect man who reflects them. These reflected qualities seem often limited or obscured by personal sense.

This sense sees these qualities expressed as belonging to a person and his character—inborn or developed qualities, shaped through personal experience. In this limiting perspective they seem to be a mixture of good and evil. It is like the dirty windowpane, which lets the light shine through more or less clearly. The light is not formed or developed by the windowpane. Nor does the light mix with the darkness, although to the spectator in the room with the dirty windowpane it appears as diminished light. Do we face the task of solving our human relationships as we would the problem of diminished light?
