Truth is Congruent and Coherent | A soul’s sojourn no[w-here]

rivers-of-lightI am not alone in navigating these waters, the tumultuous waves of change that are washing over and through us as we move into states of Being, familiar yet long forgotten.

The foundation, the basis necessary to embrace Truth is an energy we call love. Love is the glue of creation, without it we would not be able to hold each other, commune with trees, envision our journey through the cosmos, without love we are a shallow container ready to absorb whatever finds us a fitting encasement.

The sojourn of the soul has been a long one, excruciating as well as exhilarating. There are always questions posing in the consciousness, these questions lead to answers and up until recently the answers have been partial, fulfilling one part while with arrogant acrimony dismissing others. In a deep pool of reflection we can all admit to our selves how this operates. Seldom do we bend to peer into this water.

One of the least understood and disclosed slogans of the falsely named new age is that ‘we are one’. The times I have heard this blithely repeated by parroting the words is nauseating. We have taken a fundamental, an axiom of truth and turned it into a meaningless phrase with little to zero comprehension. Namaste is a concept that goes very deep… so lets peer in, shall we?

Etymology is important whether we are speaking in our native language or having adopted a foreign one. Language at its root is conceptual, as with the first sound. It is only the bastardization of language that has turned it from source coding to a tool to enslave our minds. When we speak without wisdom or gnosis we demean ourselves and our other.

“Namaste (Namas + te, Devanagari: नमस् + ते = नमस्त) is derived from Sanskrit and is a combination of the word nama and the second person dative pronoun in its enclitic form te. The word nama takes the Sandhi form namas before the sound.

Nama means ‘bow’, ‘obeisance’, ‘reverential salutation’ or ‘adoration’ and te means ‘to you’ (singular dative case of ‘tvam’). Therefore, Namaste literally means “bowing to you”.

A less common variant is used in the case of three or more people being addressed namely Namo va which is a combination of nama and the enclitic second person plural pronoun va. The word nama takes the Sandhi form namo before the sound.

An even less common variant is used in the case of two people being addressed, namely, Namo vām, which is a combination of nama and the enclitic 2nd person dual pronoun vām.”

The indwelling of the silence within is where we bow and acquiesce to, not to an entity we have named god, but the opening within. And when we use Namaste we are in silence bowing to that place in another. “I bow to you” evokes humility, a quality that is sadly lacking and misunderstood in our ego’s aggrandizement.
