I love walking in the city, arms swinging, camera in hand, a small handbag with a few essentials slung across my body.
And the Reiki Precepts in my mind.
Do not worry,
Do not anger.
Be kind to others.
Usui called those pithy gems his Secret to Inviting Happiness, the Spiritual Medicine for all illness.
What could be simpler in expression, or richer in understanding? Not a moment in the day lies outside their purview.
And some days we need simpler.
That’s when I stay with Be kind to others. All the Precepts are contained therein.
Be kind to others
When we are kind to others, we have set aside worry and anger, and reached within to our true nature. Having found that inner spaciousness, we share its glory with others.
And as we revel in it ourselves, the day changes.
The alchemy of kindness transforms everything.
Your happiness secret
Try it. Simple kindness, not looking for acknowledgement. Your happiness secret with yourself.
Even if you’re not feeling it, make an action of kindness, and let your awareness settle into your state. See what happens.
Let’s run a Reiki community experiment. Try a moment of kindness, and leave a comment sharing how it shifts your state.
