WOW is slang for; TO GAIN AN ENTHUSIASTIC RESPONSE FROM ANOTHER, AN EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS OR PLEASURE, OR A THRILL FROM ANOTHER. Have you ever given a WOW to someone? Or has one given a WOW to you? When someone says to you; “you have touched my HEART and lifted my SOUL,” that is a DEFINITE WOW. That EXTRAORDINARY FEELING is a sensation that is experienced by the receiver and the donator.
The Onondaga people of the Iroquois Nation have a very simple way of giving a WOW experience when someone parts company from another. They have one expression for when they part company. They never say the common word that is in every language when one goes away. That word is too final a word on parting. (It is not in the Onondaga vocabulary, and as a result not in my vocabulary). The Onondaga people say DEN TSHE EH (pronounced DEN SHAY AY) when someone is about to depart their presence. It means; COME BACK AGAIN. What an ENTHUSIASTIC RESPONSE for someone to receive upon leaving another. To know that one wants you to COME BACK AGAIN, that is a WOW FACTOR.
Never take anything for GRANTED. Always make an effort to ASSIST others, COLLABORATE with others. SHARE with others something that they do not have and you will then give them a WOW FACTOR. In turn they will begin to give you a WOW FACTOR by saying DEN TSHE EH to you when you leave their vicinity.
TOUCH ANOTHER’S HEART, THEIR SOUL AND GIVE THEM THE WOW FACTOR. HOPEFULLY YOU TOO WILL RECEIVE THE WOW FACTOR BY HEARING DEN TSHE EH.
START NOW, GIVE THE WOW FACTOR. SAY DEN TSHE EH.

In these days, it feels that a beautiful way to offer a WOW is to be fully present with another. Listening (eyes, ears, heart) fully and being there for the other. Expressing interest in their well being and offering all that you can to help them. Compassion practiced in every breath.
DEN TSHE EH
DEN TSHE EH!
