See How Each Soul Has Touched You Often in our lives, we don’t realize the significance of a relationship until later, when the experience has passed. Then we understand how the person helped us along the way, took us to the next part of our journey, opened us up to begin learning the next lesson. And we see how we, in turn, helped shape that person. One evening, as I was readying for sleep, I had a vision. I saw clearly before me a scenario of the dance we do with each other. I saw in my heart, understood deeply, the tangible, shaping impact each soul had on my life. Each moment, each interaction with another person, had been important—the quiet interactions, the ones I barely noticed, and the more significant relationships. Each moment—the moments that hurt—the moments that brought joy—had helped. We had touched each other. We were joined in and intricate dance, a dance in which our souls learned and grew. And we had taken our places with each other on time. For the dance was perfectly choreographed. I could almost see us waving gleefully to each other, happy for how we connected, joyful that we had helped each other learn the lessons of the soul: courage, forgiveness, gentleness, self-love. See how each soul touches you? See how you teach them? Ask your heart to guide you with honesty, love, and responsibility on all your encounters. Honor the sacredness of love. Honor the lessons of planet earth and the people who help you learn them.
