I hasten to add, that what I said we "think of" does not, of course, circumscribe the Orthodox understanding of, and relationship with, the Theotokos. One key to that understanding is that we shy away from using many other terms for her (to be sure, we address her inspecific Liturgical contexts and prayers as "pure Virgin, and "Lady full of Grace", but "Theotokos is definitely the predominate term), as this term holds her inseparably united with her Son, and specifically as the birthgiver of God; just as we do not like representations of her which depict her separately from Christ.
For the Orthodox, Mary is at the same time inseparable from the Church: Christ is her Lord, but she bore him, just as Christ is the Church's Lord, but the Church bears him forth. The more I come to love and sense the mystery of the Church, the more I love and adore Mary.
And, the more I find myself repelled from images and language which depict her as above and somehow separate from the human condition: some sort of independent celestial figure, sappy goddess-type, earth-mother, etc.
