“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!
