You Are Another Me

by Qid Love



In Lak’ech / Pensamiento Serpentino by Luis Valdez:

In Lak'ech

Tú eres mi otro yo. / You are my other me.

Si te hago daño a ti, / If I do harm to you,

Me hago daño a mi mismo. / I do harm to myself.

Si te amo y respeto, / If I love and respect you,

Me amo y respeto yo. / I love and respect myself.

This Mayan philosophy and greeting is similar in concept to the deeper meanings attributed to “namaste”. The understanding of the interconnectedness of all beings is something I’ve carried with me since childhood. Another version I learned came from a class I took on Kabbalah a decade or so ago, stated as “there is no separateness”.

It’s often difficult to hold the fullness of this idea in a world filled with hatred, violence, and bigotry. But maybe if we can just greet the people we meet with this intention, the world will eventually be a better place.
