For those of you who have never been to a yoga class or those of you that forget the meaning I will explain my interpretation. The language of yoga is Sanskrit, a sacred language which is used for spiritual rituals. I only use those words in my yoga practice that have begun to hold special meaning for me. Namaste is used as a greeting which means "the Devine in me, sees the Devine in you". From my Christian upbringing, I see this as the Holy Spirit living in you. I think this can be visualized by light. Like when someone's eyes light up. Or someone who is depressed has a dull look in their eyes. Whether light is bright or dim, I can see it in everyone. I also think back to a song I used to sing in Vacation Bible School: "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine". I can visualize little children belting that song out: "let it shine, let it shine, let it shine". The second verse is "hide it under a bushel? NO! I'm gonna let it shine." Sometimes we should channel the enthusiasm of children and let our light shine.
What makes your light shine? Do 3 things today that make your light shine. It can be small things, because each small thing will make the light grow brighter.
