"When you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter.
As you see him You will see yourself.
As you treat him You will treat yourself.
As you think of him You will think of yourself.
Never forget this, for in him you will find yourself or lose yourself. "
~ A Course In Miracles
Imagine if every time we met our horses, we could welcome this meeting as a sacred encounter.
Imagine if every time we met anyone, no matter who they are or where they come from, we could welcome this meeting as a sacred encounter.
Part of my daily spiritual practice is to read and then make notes of a spiritual text called A Course in Miracles. I have a pocket guide to The Course called Holy Shift, by Robert Holden and I find it a great support to the sometimes overwhelming teachings. Today I opened to the above passage and it was such a wonderful reminder to me.
I spent some time reflecting on this beautiful passage during my day, thinking of where I could sprinkle in a little more presence, kindness, compassion and understanding.
What a magical place the world would be if every single encounter we had, we chose to regard as a holy one.
Because it is.
Even if at the time it just feels like life, racing us along to the next meeting, the next food shop, the next deadline, the next dental appointment!
Now more than ever with the world having a major reset, we have a wonderful opportunity to reset how we see the world and all the encounters we may have in it.
Namaste and thank you for being here xxx Lara
