Nurturing Thursday: Emanate

“Hello, Do not greet anybody when the heart is filled with anger distrust etc. Have, instead, a pure hollow from which a whole hearted Hello emanates.”
– Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Indian spiritual leader, b.1926

I’m always amazed by the number of people that I walk by who refuse to make eye contact or say hello. It’s such a simple thing – to send joy to another person by saying hello. I particularly love it when I pass a child who greets me with a wave and an enthusiastic hello. It’s as if the child emanates all that is good, joyful and fun; and it simply makes me want to pass it on… The next time you pass someone, say hello, it may be contagious!

  1. People are so often in their own world — suspicious of everything and everyone … who knows what is “on their plate” … I use to work someone who was suspicious if a client came into our office in a good mood, smiling and/or very talkative … I thought how sad to think the norm for clients is to be grouchy and unappreciative …

    It is enjoyable to meet someone who is readily willing to say hello and/or produce a smile … it brightens the day! Thank you for linking to Nurturing Thursday!
