A holy encounter is possible anytime we meet another person.
These are the times when we’re willing to see the Christ in someone else, which, in turn, enables us to see the Christ in ourselves.
Our willingness is ALL that’s required.
It’s our willingness to see the truth in our companion that liberates us both.
Holy encounters liberate us from suffering and the pain of separation thinking because they are the moment when we’re willing to see our union with our brothers and sisters.
These encounters are vehicles for our awakening.
I think of how casually I sometimes meet someone and have no thought of the possible holy encounter – in a store or a restaurant. I completely forget the opportunity I have been given in the meeting with my fellow human being.
Let me remember this:
“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. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they are given another chance at salvation. Do not leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself.” A Course in Miracles T-8.III.4.
Since our willingness is all that’s needed for our escape from suffering, let’s focus on that. Many of my programs have cultivating willingness at their core. Every day of the week I hear from those who are receiving tremendous benefit from the joining with their companions.
We’re rising up and it’s happening now, in this holy instant.
It’s one of the reasons why I love being a spiritual counselor and I’ve had so much healing from that work. Each encounter is a holy encounter for me.
There is a pathway to our awakening and we’re on it. Let’s make our day filled with holy encounters.
Let this be our new habit and then we’ll realize the power and the glory of God is in our mind and available now!
