Maybe someone can fill me in on the reason its being used so much on ATS, as i have never heard of anyone using this word in all my 41 years of life
on this earth.
hmm I guess any word used as a fad could be seen as pretentious don't you think? Why use 'peace' as a sign off when you're arguing? Why use
'later' when you mean I hope never to see you again? Just saying... Namaste is just another phrase used to greet and sign off. Rather than focus on
the word, focus on the over all message a particular person is relaying instead?
Words do have power however and people who use positive language I assume are wanting to bring positivity, saying that the light in me recognizes the
light in you is in my opinion a very positive message and much more so on a personal level than peace.
I guess people could sign off 'the light in me....' however namaste is a much shorter and established version that relays the same message perfectly
