You may or may not be a yogi. Namaste is a simple gesture with a beautiful meaning. This morning I am compelled to acknowledge all of you with gratitude.
Namaste is a Hindi salutation or greeting. The word Namaste is a combination of the two Sanskrit words: nama, and te. Basically, nama means “to bow” and te means “you.” When spoken to another person, it is commonly accompanied by a slight bow made with hands pressed together, palms touching and fingers pointed upwards, in front of the chest.
The God/Goddess Spirit within me recognizes and honors the God/Goddess Spirit within you.
Writing this blog has been a gift to me. I am inspired daily by kind words or calls, emails, texts etc.. to “keep the love coming”. It has truly been an outlet for me to express my thoughts and journey. Never had I imagined that so many people would enjoy it. It is because of this kindness and encouragement that I am continuously grateful.
I honor all of you as my gifts, your presence and existence whether or not we have crossed paths in life yet. It is no accident that we have interacted, and each of you has a value that cannot be described in words. There is a spiritual presence in all of us whether or not we can understand it, whether or not you feel “connected” to it at all times.
Haven’t you ever met someone and felt as though you’ve known them forever? Treat them with care, you do not know how important they may become. They may be a kindred spirit. “The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” ~Samuel Johnson
Value your interactions, it will change your life. Choose to see the good in people-it is eye opening. Smile at a stranger. Do an act of kindness for absolutely no reason. Acknowledge the “god/goddess” in another with real intention.
