Inspiration to Start the Week: Reach Greatness

Do you sometimes wonder why you are in a certain place at a certain time? Or why you may have met someone who turned out to be a lifelong friend in the unlikeliest of places? Or even why events unfold the way they do? In the hustle and bustle of life, we often forget that every event and every encounter has intention. Every event has the opportunity for a good and higher purpose. In that way, everything you experience has the opportunity to propel you higher—whether you consider that God, Universal love, or a deep connection with Nature.

If events in your life did not have this possibility, they would never exist, and we would never be brought to experience them. So the next time you are in an unusual place or have a chance encounter, know that you are where you are meant to be. And if, little by little, you begin to look at each experience as the possibility to reach greatness, you will begin, little by little, to open your heart and accumulate your love.
