Song #39: Namaste

It seems to me that the people who have the most success in their relationships don't just have love for their intimate partners, but for everyone and all things. Love, for them, is central to their identity and actions; their way of relating to the world they live in.

As folks familiar with yoga and/or Indian culture may know, the term Namaste is a greeting from India that is roughly translated as "the light in me recognizes (or bows to) the light in you." With that in mind, here's a song for those who are open to the love/light that is all around us.

LYRICS:

she wonders:

"why let ancient myths and legends tell you who you are?"

when none of these things truly resonate

within her heart

 

Since day one she's always been told

she's never been - at her core -

never been good enough

everyone outside of her is telling her

that what's inside of her and every man

is darkness

 

but when she looks all around

all she sees is alright

she finds goodness and uncorrupted love

within all

 

Namaste

Namaste

Namaste

the light in me is the light in you

 

he wonders:

"why give people shit just because of the way they are?"

he hears stories of oppression

and they break his childlike heart

 

'Cause when he looks all around

all he sees is all one

he finds goodness and uncorrupted love

within all

 

Namaste

Namaste

Namaste

the light in me is the light in you

 

the light in me is the light in you

the love in me is the love in you

the heart in me is the heart in you

the light in me is the light in you
