I see the Divine shining in you!

You Can Save the World:  Actions You Can Take

Honor the life force in everyone and everything. When Hindus meet, they often offer each other the greeting, Namaste. In essence, the greeting communicates, “The Divine I recognize inside myself recognizes and acknowledges that same Divine in you.”

You may have to look past the outer form and limitations to see the Divine in another life form–whether that life form is a person, a creature, a plant, or a stone. But, once you recognize that realitiy–the reality that we are all that One Divine manifesting in a myriad of different forms–it is impossible not to feel respect for another living being–impossible!

If only in your mind, try greeting everyone and everthing you interact with the greeting “Namaste–I see the light of the Divine shining inside you.” You’ll find that it will bring everyone and everything back inside the circle of life. And, if you start to do this regularly, you may just discover that you’ve brought yourself back inside that circle, too.

  1. The Anishnabe, indigeneous people in eastern Canada and U.S., have a greeting that means the same as Namaste. A totally different way to approach the world than we in this insane modern world have.
