The joy of living
Reiki has now become a way of living. As I cannot imagine a day where I do no yoga, I cannot imagine a day where I do no reiki. The more I do reiki, the more I understand about life and the simplicity of all that happens around us and within us. I now know that everything around us is an act of creation – a creation that has sprung up from our mind. Every person, every situation and every act around us is a manifestation of our beliefs, our thoughts, our strengths and our limitations. We alone have the power to create our lives and we alone are responsible for our circumstances.
Here are some beautiful words that echo my belief in what life is:
1. You receive a Body
You may like it or not, but it is yours for this life-time.
2. You will learn Lessons
You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called ‘Life’. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant or stupid
3. There are no Mistakes, Only Lessons
Growth is a process of trial and error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the one that ultimately works
4. A Lesson is repeated until it is Learned
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. Then you can go to the next lesson.
5. Learning Lessons Does not End
There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.
6. “There” is no better than “Here”
When your “There” has become a “Here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will, again, look better than “Here”.
7. Others are Merely Mirrors of You
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.
8. What you Make of Your Life is up to You
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.
9. The Answers Lie Inside You
The answers to Life’s questions lie inside you. All You need to do is look, listen and trust.
10. Whether you think you can or can’t – in either case you’ll be right
