“I see you,” say the indigenous beings in the movie, Avatar, when they
greet one another deeply. “I see you.” At the surface this refers to physical
seeing, the physical information gleaned through the eyes. Several layers
down, it speaks to the deepest possible seeing of another, through the
heart to the soul or authentic essence. Here, in the midst of the Jewish
High Holy Days, we are reminded to see, really see one another, as
deeply as we can, and to cultivate the empathy and compassion that
save us, each and together.
