Namaste' Fellow Champions

Namaste'~The Divine Light in me honors the Divine Light in You.

Share the positive energy of your spirit by honoring the other divine spirits you are connected to...brighten the flame. Set the intention to silently say namaste' to all you cross paths with for the next few days. No need to tell anyone what you're doing. Just send love and honor from your heart. It gives you more courage to be more...do more. Unlike the Olympic torch, this is a flame that is not extinguished.

We never truly know what another is going through in their life. Appearances can be very deceiving. A smile can be a mask for a challenge one is facing. Sending them unconditional love, respect, and honor without expecting a mutually returned effort can make a difference. Ultimately, when you send love to another, you are sending yourself love. Never forget the truth..."what goes around, comes around."

So why not set the intention for it to be good? Allow what appears to be a negative contact an opportunity to exercise your consciousness of emotions. We work hard at getting physically in shape or study hard to do well on a test. Do you give as much effort to spiritual "tests"? Strengthen your awareness and capacity to make a difference. Collectively, we can manifest change. Just like a pool of hundreds of fish can swim in unison without a designated "leader" or bickering which way to go next; we too have the ability. We simply need to stop thinking about who is supposed to do what and just do it. Live your life with purpose. It has unlimited potential. We all have gifts to share.

Just remember the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. There is no justification for expressing hate, harmful wishes, or judgement. If your religion endorses it, you might want to take a step back to see a bigger picture. It is easy to be influenced by your thoughts, memories or someone else's. A real champion of the GR rises above a group's collective mindset.

The humility of the Olympic champions is inspiring. When you take the time to listen to their intentions, see the spark in their eyes, and feel the gratitude for their chance to compete...you can't but feel inspired. Not many people make it to the Olympics; however, there is enough "gold" to go around for each of us to pursue. (Or, using a yoga analogy...there is enough light to go around) It is simply a matter of changing what does not resonate with your heart.

B.K.S. Iyengar, a great yogi, once said:  "Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they're meant to be."
