Guan Yin Speaks. Namaste', hello self!
“Good morning! This is Guan Yin speaking.
Isn’t that a wonderful word? Namaste’. It can be a simple greeting, but there are deep and profound implications in this kind of greeting.
What it is saying, is,
“The Buddha/Christ within me, greets the Buddha/Christ within you.”
Could anything be more pure and tender? More loving?
This is one way to be in a continuous mindful and loving state of being. Before you have any interaction with any being, you look at them and say,
“I behold the Buddha within you, I behold myself within you. Hello self.”
If done with mindful sincerity it brings an immediate realization. There is one great Self, walking around in different bodies, different clothes, different pretenses of individuality. Some are hiding in deep unconsciousness, others are waking to their own light, but all are one radiant being-ness.
One I AM, is all I AM.
There is a wonderful exercise that people can do, all it takes is two souls agreeing to look into the eyes of one another for a period of time, in a state of quiet no-thought. Or chanting a mantra together. It is the human instinct of a form of fear, to have difficulty doing this. Just bring it back, bring it back to this mindful gazing. Try not to blink, you may perceive light coming from this person to you. Sooner or later, we will see ourselves looking back. It is the deepest love one can have for another, to behold the Divinity within that being, as ourselves.
People often have this deep recognition when they fall in love, or are experiencing certain reality altering drugs. One has the feeling of,
“Oh I know you. I know you!”
Well yes. You do. You know the endless ecstatic love of the Source. Even if it is only a flash in what you call time, you have perceived God. Children, God isn’t “Up there”… God is in “In here.”
Play the game of,
“There I go as…”
Pick a person or a tree or an animal, place yourself within that being, and look out. With deep knowing you say,
“There I go as…”
A truck driver, a dog, a rose bush. Do you see? One life in myriad miraculous expressions. This can give a compassionate empathy to all interactions.
One may also see that if a person is cruel, or hurtful in any way, who is it that is hurt by hateful actions? Only oneself. Ever. That is ignorant sleeping behavior that can be transformed when we release attachment to the dream notions that we are separate, entitled, right. Evidently not as easy as it might sound, if one looks around at the world right now, but it is one powerful way to save your own life and soul journey. This is service to others as well. When one wakes, the entirety of all the living beings on planet Earth shifts ever so slightly.
So Namaste’ dear ones, Namaste’.
That is all. I love you.”

Blessings to all.
