My Body’s Way of Saying “Hello”


I caught myself today saying hello to someone by smiling, placing my hand on my heart and bowing my head. Then it hit me – this is how I’ve been saying hello to just about everyone I’ve passed for the last couple months. I was doing it totally unconsciously. My body was just saying hello in the way that felt right to it – bypassing my mind completely.

I thought it about it some, and I realized that what my body was trying to say in its ‘hello’ was this: “I see your heart. I bow to all of who you are – your humanity and your divinity. I am here with you.”

In general, I think people have received it pretty well. smile emoticon
