So What’s in a Word

This Month I have been taking a picture a day (Okay, I forgot a couple of days) from a list of subjects given for each day.  It has been so much fun trying to think outside the box for each subject.  Today’s subject:

A WORD

I have not thought much about What’s in a word.  And then I realized that words are powerful.  And there can be so many ways to interrupt a word even when it has only so many meaning listed in a dictionary.  Or maybe I should say that last sentence this way.  There are so many different ways to “Feel” a word even when it has only so many meanings.  And so my WORD today is…..Wait for it….

N A M A S T E

Nama – Bow

As – I

Te - You

“Bow Me You”

More Westernized – The Divine Light in Me Honors the Devine Light in You.

As a Christian who deeply believes in my One God in Heaven, who is Divine in my eyes, this word stirs deep feeling within me.  Is it okay for the God in me to bow to a God in you?  Certainly I could say that there is no way that I will bow to you because I only bow to my One God.

You see, how far could I let myself go down this road of “Justification”?  So I stop myself right there.  This is what this word means to me.

  • It is an opportunity to say that I honor and respect you.
  • In my travels to India, it was an opportunity to say Thank You for taking care of me.
  • At the end of my Yoga practice it is an opportunity to say, if only in my mind, that I wish for my One God to bless each of you and hold you.

Namaste to EACH of you who have stopped by to spend time with me in my Blog.
