I hope you enjoy this video blog of “Forgiveness.”

I received a question from my Uncle Louis after he received one of the earlier video blogs. He asked, “What is the definition of the word Namaste?”

I use Namaste as my departing salutation in the book 180 Degrees. The definition of Namaste can be found at:

When I use the word Namaste, I intend the meaning, "The spirit in me respects the spirit in you" or "the divinity in me bows to the divinity in you" or as it was originally told to me from a yoga master, “The God in me salutes the God in you.”

For those that read the book 180 Degrees, you know that I am a strong believer in God, however I am not a follower of any religion. Although my wife and kids are Jewish, my dad was Presbyterian and my mom Catholic, I chose a different path. My belief in God is always evolving and I am committed to the process of discovering new awareness of God and how the Universal energy is working in my life and how I (we) relate to it all.

As the word Namaste is used in my book; I totally respect any and all paths to God … and for those that do not believe in God, I respect your path too.
