Affinity – Namaste

Affinity is an attraction between things. In chemistry, attraction is based on the electromagnetic fields of atoms and their electron clouds. In people attraction can be based upon likenesses or a perception of complementing and completing.

Love is a response to an attraction by extending the concept of boundary of self to some degree. When we feel a sense of connection with something or someone that is outside of our definition of self, we feel less threatened and more willing to allow the other more closeness.

Spiritual affinity can be provoked simply by sharing of the core. The Indian word “namaste” has been translated as: “I bow to the sacred light that is at the center of each of us and connects us because it is the same.” Any contact at this level seems to include a high level of attraction.
