Say 'Namaste' (and walk away)
Hello, my friends in Oneness,
I hope this blog finds you well, I hope you're enjoying this beautiful Fall season, and (for my U.S. friends), you're getting psyched for what is my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving!
The other day, as I was walking into an office building for a doctor's appointment, I happened to overhear the tail end of a conversation between two women. I was able to decipher from their body language, that this was an important, and delicate topic. But as I passed them, I heard something that brought a smile to my face. That was when I overheard one woman utter to her friend: "Say Namaste and walk away". You may have heard this before, I have, but not in an instance where it was being used.
What does it mean to you?
The first thing that comes to mind for me is to 'take the high road'. But using 'Namaste', which means 'I bow to you', is also sending a spiritual blessing to the recipient. Now, the woman who gave this advice to her friend may have been passing it along in gest, but I was impressed nonetheless! Maybe it means that spirituality is becoming more of the norm, especially if such sayings are being used in everyday conversation. Now, it's safe to say that a blessing or advice of this nature belongs within the confines of Oneness, but for now let's take it out of the equation, and let me ask you:
Are arguments, fights, or disagreements of ANY kind ever worth it?
I'll answer it for you, "NO". The only reason we may believe that they are (worth it) is because we are allowing our ego (remember; Edge God Out) to take control of the matter in its attempt to make us believe that we are right and the other person is wrong. When we celebrate and live from a foundation of Oneness, we know that it simply doesn't matter. We know that this life is represented by the choices we can make. Choices that may not be agreed with by others. A blessing of Oneness is that we come to terms with and accept that fact. Sending a blessing, and walking away from someone you disagree with is a spiritual acknowledgment on your part. Here's another way to look at it:
"Knowing when to walk away, is Wisdom. Being able to, is Courage. Walking away with Grace, and your held head high, is Dignity." - author unknown
It's far more important to recognize your self-worth. Don't view the matter from an ego perspective as to who is right or wrong. In this life, there is no 'right or wrong'. You've heard me say so many times that 'life just is'. Know that to be your truth, because it is. Acceptance is so important regarding how we make it through this life of ours. So, yes, send them a blessing and go your own way as you:
"Say Namaste, and walk away"
