I finally saw the movie Avatar this
week.  I don’t usually watch movies with
epic battle scenes and aliens, but when my yoga teacher highly recommended it, it
piqued my curiosity.

Briefly, the movie centers around a humanoid
culture called the Na’vi, and it’s set in 2154. 
The Na’vi are a close knit community who live deeply in tune with all of
nature’s creations.  Their way of life is
being threatened by the money hungry humans who have found a deposit of some
very rare, very expensive rock underneath the enormous tree the Na’vi call
home. 

The standard greeting for the Na’vi is “Oel
ngati kameie.”  It means “I see you.”  But it means much more than “I see you with
my eyes.”  It means something
deeper:  I understand your soul.  Or, as Neal Donald Walsch said in his book
Tomorrow’s God, “I see who you Really are.” It reminds me of the Sanskrit
greeting “namaste,” which means “the Divine light within me honors and
acknowledges the Divine light I see in you.”`
