This is a small part of Nepsis talk 16 by Bishop Emilianos of Meloa, discussing 'The Unifying Distance' as explained by his Elder Aimilianos of Simonopetra. His Grace elaborates on how we should respect the freedom of our fellow man, trying not to become too familiar with the other person; whether this be our wife, husband, child, friend or neighbour. The purpose of this "unifying distance" is to make sure we don't suffocate the others, hence maintaining peace and harmony amongst us and getting closer to Christ, and through Him, to our neighbour. It's one of the best explanations you will find on the subject.
