This morning, I promised my wife that I would take her for a Sunday drive. That used to be a thing back in the day, and we both did it growing up. While driving by beautiful Evergreen Lake, she asked me if I had heard there was another shooting. I had heard the news and said, “Too many put no value on human life,” then added, “It can happen anywhere.” She asked me if I was still living by the Reiki precepts. “Just for today, do not worry,” and “Just for today, do not anger.” Thank You Mikao Usui, Reiki’s Founder, for your infinite wisdom.
I hesitated as I danced around her question, doing my best to answer her honestly. The Bob Dylan song, “Marchin’ to the City” came to mind when he sings, “Seen too much…” I think we’ve all seen too much. I know I have.
What’s a life worth these days? A precious life is worth just as much as the life of a child who was born in a manger a long time ago. It’s the sanctity of life. The hope of the future. The kindness of the human spirit. The connections we make at the soul level. The eternal ramifications from the lives that we lead here on Earth. The connections we make with others. The synergy of goodness that we are capable of creating. To love one another. To help one another rise together and grow and get closer to being the people we were meant to be. The smell and heavenly nature of a new born baby. Finally, a life well lived. This is what a life is worth these days.
The News can hit so hard sometimes, like a kick in the gut. I am not a news junkie by any stretch of the imagination. But, just like everyone else, I’m connected to the other source that tries so hard to take me away from my Source. But, the latest tragedy always brings me closer to God. It begins shortly after I hear the news and then say, “My God.”
Reiki helps us stay grounded, centered and focused at all times, no matter what else is going on around us. It can help us find inner peace. We find peace of mind. We feel at peace. Some of us send the peace via Distance Reiki. The more we use the energy the more benefits we receive. Reiki makes a life worth even more by taking so many things to a higher level.
Reiki is one of the fastest growing healing modalities in the world today. This is no coincidence. The world needs Reiki now more than ever. Mankind can certainly benefit by healing physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Thank God for Reiki.
