Yoga Namaste for Deployment
Yoga Namaste for deployment means “the light within me honors and loves the light within you.” Namaste is an expression of honor and respects the other person as being made as the same Pure Consciousness as you. (Rina Jakubowicz) When we say and hear Namaste, we feel a sense of union, compassion, and acknowledgment, regardless of circumstances.
So let’s say yoga Namaste for deployment for our loved one today. Can I feel a sense of union with my spouse while he is an ocean away? I have to say that technology helps. In 2020 my husband was quarantined on base in Germany due to COVID- 19 and we have established a regular FaceTime schedule. Sometimes we do not have a lot to say but I can still enjoy the union of our voices and thoughts being expressed.
Can I feel compassion for my spouse? Yes, I can empathize with his impatience at his situation in a holding pattern and his desire to eventually move on to his real work in Africa. And he can acknowledge my frustrations learning to navigate my life without him. Yoga Namaste for Deployment helps us to be empathetic to each other.
“There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it ill behooves any of us to find fault with the rest of us.” -James Truslow Adams (American Writer and Historian)
