Greetings of love and gratitude from
Namaste To All Beings.
The Sanskrit word “Namaste” is a beautiful greeting often heard in
India and increasingly in other countries as well. “Nama” means
bow; “as” refers to I; and “te” means you. The general meaning is
that the spirit in me greets or bows to the spirit in you. It is
a recognition of the Divine spark and consciousness that dwells in
ourselves and in the one to whom we bow. It is spoken while
placing the hands together over the heart chakra and bowing our heads
with eyes closed. Or one can simply perform the gesture without
words, as the bowing signifies Namaste all by itself. We increase
the flow of Divine love when we hold our hands together over our
hearts. What a beautiful way this is to greet animals we meet along the
way. On our walks in nature, we can greet the worms, the ants,
the birds soaring overhead, and the cows in the field with our
heartfelt Namaste. For me it has become a joyful way to honor the
animals I see and to show them utmost respect. Because of its
cosmic intent, I do believe these precious neighbors of ours receive
our greeting and our love this way. And because it has been done
traditionally for centuries with and without words, there is great
power within both the gesture and the words.
Our Prayer For The
Week—“Namaste”--whenever we see any animal anywhere all week long.
We recognize so deeply that the Divine dwells in all beings; that all
life is sacred and worthy of respect, compassion, and love. We know
without any doubt that we are greeting someone with a Divine spark and
a soul, not “something” to be used and exploited. We give thanks
for this precious connection we have to every single being, for they
are all spirits just like us. This week help us to remember to
greet everyone we see with a joyful Namaste. And for those whom we
cannot see; those who are being currently dominated, exploited,
tortured and killed by people; may they hear and feel the love from our
hearts radiating out to comfort them as we think of them and bow to
them and say to them—Namaste. Forever and ever, from our hearts
to yours, Namaste.
As always, with tears of gratitude, I send my thanks to each of you,
dear Prayer Circle members, for joining this circle of compassion and
shining the Light of Truth for all to see, so that one day soon, all
beings will live in peace together.
May compassion and love reign over all the earth for all beings
Thank you all for your devotion to truth, love, liberation and peace
for all beings.
With Love, peace, and gratitude from Judy Carman, and greetings from
