The word Namaste is an ancient Sanskrit greeting meaning, “The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you” – a knowing that we are all made from the same One Divine Consciousness. For me it means “Letting Go”. Recently I have been struggling with the betrayal of a friend. Years of trust were lost when they allowed their jealousy and inner bitterness to dominate their thinking. I have had to overcome a lot of suffering in my lifetime from sexual abuse to the suicide of a parent, so I am no stranger to forgiveness and letting go. But for some reason this one person and the actions they chose really got to me. In the scheme of things he and our falling out are seemingly insignificant. But in this morning’s meditation, I have discovered the importance of this life event. I have been having negative feelings toward him which is not my usual state. I have wanted him to fail. I have wanted him to be ashamed of his actions. These thoughts and feelings do not serve me. So today I have decided that I will start practicing Namaste. I know this person looks at my blog daily and from now on when I see they have I will be sending them a blessing. A blessing for happiness, health and success in their art career. I will visualize them doing well and having a beautiful life. I will affirm that every painting they create will sell and sell well. I will affirm that they will find within themselves what I have found already. I will love them in spirit. Namaste “Craig”…..Namaste……
