Namaste: Connecting to the Divine Spark Within

Namaste: Connecting to the Divine Spark Within

Traveling through India and Nepal, I learned to say Namaste in place of hello and good bye.  Much later, I learned that this simple greeting has a deeper meaning.

In lands steeped in spirituality it makes sense that people greet one another with a word that signifies an acknowledgement of your spirit.  Roughly Namaste means I acknowledge that your spirit and my spirit come from the same source and therefore we are connected, each parts of the whole.

I love this concept of seeing one another as spirits, a spark of the divine if you will, rather than just another body.

Seeing yourself and every being as a spark of light.

Yoga: Throughout your practice, be it asana or meditation focus on your spirit/ the divine within you.  Let every movement, every breath, emanate from your inner being rather than from the body.

Life: In your daily life remind yourself to notice your spirit and those around you.  Can you see the really annoying people you encounter as sparks of the divine? 🙂

Business:  Managers, employees, co-workers, customers, vendors; relationships are everything in business.  How would your relationships change if you saw these people as souls rather than people you need something from and who need something from you?  How would you do business differently?
