If we only had ONE MINUTE with those whom we encounter, how would we use it?
Would we view the encounter as a precious and sacred opportunity, or squander it as if there would be millions more to come?
What few and precious words would we utter?
Where would we focus our eyes?
What would we listen for?
Would we listen at all?
How would we stand/sit?
What will we and the Other learn?
How attuned would the Other perceive us to be?
Our daily encounters with Others are not coincidental. They are Providential appointments.
If we intend to change the world for the better, to make better futures, those precious minutes matter. Why? Because we can't change the world, or make better futures, by ourselves. We need an army of like-minded changers.
One Minute matters. Quite a lot, actually.
