Love Seeing Love
The Hindu salutation “namaste” is often translated as “the divine light in me bows to the divine light in you”. I resonate with this reverent acknowledgement of our essential nature and our essential oneness.
According to my favorite cosmological story, at the very beginning, a creative and intelligent emptiness – the nameless mystery some call God – burst into the energy of love. Love, the first expression of God, gradually cooled to become everything and everyone. So, in this story, everything and everyone is love. Divine light is love.
I invite you to try a thought experiment. For the next week or so, whenever you look at someone or whenever you look in a mirror, imagine this: Love is seeing love.
