The body is considered illusionary; something that comes and goes. The body can be considered a temporary abode, a vehicle for our true selves. So what then is our true nature? It is the light that shines within us, it is difficult to contemplate that our bodies, our toes our fingers are not really us, and until we come to this realization we remain in a cage. Our ego traps us like a little bird waiting to be set free. When we use the term 'Namaste,' or 'Om Namah Sivaya,' there is a much deeper meaning than just a greeting. We bow the head and form the prayer position with our hands in front of our heart centre, bowing the head signifying humility, 'I am humble' the hands are like a lotus bud opening; a sign of balanced energy. We are saluting each other, or more so recognizing the divine in each and every being. You are all auspicious beings and I salute each and every one of you.
Unity of all beings is essential to free us from our cages, balance the world, balance each being. The planet is small, we have to live together, the time has come for only unity to exist.
Om Namah Sivaya
Peace to all.
