"Unless we recognize our own holiness we will not see the holiness of all of God's creations. What we perceive is, after all, merely the reflection of how we see ourselves. Conversely, how we perceive others shows us how we must be seeing ourselves. Try this exercise: Say to yourself, 'my holiness blesses the world.' Repeat the idea slowly. Apply the idea silently to anyone you meet using their name. Really try to do this It takes real presence of mind to repeat the idea right when you meet up with someone, but it can be done. Or it can be done after the interaction is over. This practice has the power to transform an ordinary encounter into a holy encounter." Taken from (out of context a little bit) A Course in Miracles (A workbook companion, Watson and Perry)
