“For thine is the kingdom
The power and the glory
Go tell it on the mountain
Go tell the real story” Bob Dylan, ‘Goodbye Jimmy Reed’
The real story is that there is a much bigger picture than what we experience on a daily basis, which can be more than enough for any of us as we wade through these strange waters together. The real story is that everything begins with a single thought and our collective consciousness will keep us moving forward together – as long as we work together and treat our fellow brothers and sisters the way that we want to be treated. It’s the Golden Rule and can be found in the heart of all of us. Like Don Henley said, “The Heart of The Matter.”
The real story is that you can run from your past but you can’t run away from the future. That’s why this moment is so precious. One of the many gifts that Reiki delivers is the gift of hope. Reiki always delivers what I call the Big Three – Peace, Love & Hope. Hope is what keeps us moving forward. Never lose hope because it can show up when you least expect it. I know it firsthand and so do countless others. Keep hope alive by paying attention to your thoughts. Because, after all, you are a part of our collective consciousness. We need you.
We have been through a lot together and still have a very long way to go. We are all here for a reason and the main reason is to love one another. I have experienced the power of love so many times that I consider myself the luckiest man walking the planet. Just like everyone else, I have had plenty of pain along the way too, but it’s the love that pulled me through. Frank Sinatra said, “That’s Life.”
Be kind to those you meet and be gentle with yourself. It is more important than ever that we take good care of ourselves. See a better day ahead with your mind’s eye. What makes you happy? See it. Believe it. Take that thought to heart and let it expand. Give yourself Reiki over your heart and allow it to grow. Feel the warmth and the eternal healing love that is coming through your hands. Share the energy with the rest of the world because we are all connected and your efforts are making a difference.
If you haven’t been introduced to Reiki yet, that’s okay. See your vision and share it with the rest of the world through your prayers and actions. Everything begins with a single thought and in order for us to build a better future, we need to see it first. The real story is that we can all make a difference in whether we are moving forward or not. Seize the moment and make a difference by tapping into your God given inner strength of faith, belief and hope. That’s the real story. God Bless You.
