Putting Namaste Into Practice

I have the Sanskrit symbol for Namaste tattooed on my right hip. Not the kind of tattoo that only lasts through a few showers and a good long swim. The I-let-them-stick-needles-in-me kind. I love that sweet little tattoo and the forever reminder of how sacred the concept of Namaste is to me. Part of the final step in my Juicy Joy training is the installation of the Namaste Lens.

Simply put, Namaste means: The divine in me recognizes and honors the divine in you. It’s waking up to the divine God-Love energy that runs through us all, connecting us in sacred and indisputable ways.

With your Namaste Lens installed, it’s easy to truly love and honor all people with all their limitations. It’s only our fears and protections that keep us from allowing ourselves to feel that love. You know that classic analogy about how holding a grudge against someone is like eating poison and expecting the other person to die, in that it harms the holder of the grudge far worse than the person the grudge is held against?

In a similar vein, your soul-self wants to love everybody. It feels good to love. It doesn’t feel good to judge and dislike people. Loving everyone doesn’t mean you have to be in relationships with everyone. You can be honest with the people in your life regarding how much time you want to spend with them and what you want the nature of your relationship to be, while still loving every one of them….Continue reading on InspireMeToday.com.

Namaste literally means "bow to you" translated as "I bow to you".

It says nothing of the divine light or spirit or honoring this in another. That is a "new age" translation.

It's still a lovely gesture, but misinterpreted.

Good for you! Even if your belief is a lot of made-up rubbish about non-existent divinities, it allows you to love everyone, including presumably, torturers, child abusers and killers, human trafficers and perpetrators of genocide, even people who would inflict great physical and emotional pain on you. I haven't reached that kind of sainthood yet - maybe I just need a tatoo.

"It’s waking up to the divine God-Love energy that runs through us all, connecting us in sacred and indisputable ways."

Hold on, "God-Love"? There is no imaginary "God" and that ENERGY that runs through all of us is something called "LIFE". There's nothing "sacred" or "indisputable" about it, ALL animals and even INSECTS have it. I can prove that even an EARTHWORM has it. So what's the MORAL of this story? We The People are ALREADY "loving". Perhaps Ted Nugent and all his Neo-Nazis cronies need to read this?

I don't care for other websites asking you to register before you can read either. Not surprising here anymore.
