Words In Passing

Marty Reep, Author
Speaker, Forward-Thinker

The words in passing that we give each other in the midst of peace are good. They build up and make each other stronger. They establish from the depths and foundation of the world a solid path of living. They breathe life into anothers soul and renew the uneasiness that can develop during the week.

On the other hand, words of hatred that we give each other in days of distraught distractions tear down, and do not build up. They harm, hold us liable, and take away hope instead of giving it. That is not how we are meant to live to our fullest.

Yet, through it all, we stand. We stand on the mettle and beauty of the moment – the beauty that holds the hand of eternity and walks with us every step of the way. Thank goodness we get other chances to overwrite past actions with new ones – to replace bad memories with good.

May the words you share in passing bless and help. May they uphold the beauty within you and shine forth with grace, mercy, and light. Deep feelings abound with the greatness of the day and add purpose to the moments that seek you in their midst. Gracious hope and healing are there to grant you the life that you seek.

Those kinds of words stand by their promises to uphold and heal. Not until they grant purpose in your life will you see the greatness that you are capable of. Even then, there is far more you are able to do if you will allow your mind and heart to see yourself as the Universe sees you. You are far greater beyond measure – not because you are special within yourself, but because of the untenable abundance that abounds throughout the realm of the light that fills the breadth of space and depth of human souls.

The amount of greatness available to us and surrounding us every day surpasses the capacity of most human minds. Yet, the quantity does not change, nor does it shade itself in the shadows of doubt and fear. It waits – for each of us to grasp its presence and comprehend it awesomeness for our lives.

There are pieces, wholes, and parts for you and for me. They are there for us to grab hold of, take in, and become. Wherever we are, the Greatness stands before us. It awaits our acknowledgement and reasoning to grapple with its power. Continuing purpose can guide you through the accounting of its use, as well as the taming of its reason to encompass the light that extends from its sides. Be bold. Reach hold. Grab on. Be great.
