The Most Important Words and Encounters ...

The most important words and encounters with others are what? Is it the prayer you say to God? Or is it the word you say to a friend who has lost her husband? Is it the quiet moments with your spouse or children, touching them or giving them a hug? Or are the words " I love you" the most important? Everyone would probably give a different answer.

The most important words and encounters are the very next ones. Every encounter with someone, from the most minor to a lifelong relationship, and every word you say, every thought you have, has the power to change lives. Every single one creates a ripple effect that goes way beyond what you can imagine. We want to categorize certain words/experiences/encounters as greater than another, but this is false. They only appear to be greater. Every encounter you have has the potential and is meant to bring about a remembrance in both people. You are helping each other to remember your Oneness with God and who you really are; thus each encounter is holy.

So as you go through your daily routine, when you share an elevator, or when you pass someone in the grocery, remember what the purpose of these seemingly random encounters is. As you do that, you will begin to remember Him, to see Him in everyone and everything, to feel His Presence, and to feel His Love.
