A True Encounter

Life is made of encounters. A true encounter stimulates questions and  answers. When you meet an interesting stranger you find yourself alert curious. Who is this person? You seek to discover something of the mystery of his identity of and of his history. At the same time if he inspires confidence, if he seems to be a person of unusual depth and experience, you begin to open to him and to share with him the secret of your own life. In this way, a true personal encounter brings us not only knowledge of another, fellowship with another, but also a deeper comprehension of our own inner self. -Thomas Merton, The Monastic Journey
