There is an old Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times." Well if nothing else we sure have been doing that haven't we. From political discord, to inflation, power struggles, and democracy at risk l I'd say that is the epitome of "interesting times."
I honestly think in terms of the political field, both parties have lost their compass if not their minds all together. I am 68 years old and the last four years reminds me of history studies of the fall of other empires and countries. I do not even recognize our country any more.
If this is not the time for Reiki so we can ground I don't know what is. As the world whirls around us, and things become even more difficult, it is essential to grow roots and be grounded. If we allow ourselves to give into fear, hate, stress, and more we have lost the ability to be part of the solution and become part of the problem.
Reiki allows us to stand in the middle of the storm and still be calm and quiet in it. As everyone else gets pulled in, we can stand in peace, Om Shanti Om...peace...peace...peace. We can choose to live each day with the Reiki principles.
We have the power not to worry when worry has become a ravenous monster. We can choose through Reiki not to be angry when anger has gotten so out of control that innocent people are shot down in the streets. We have the power to be honest when the world is corrupt, and we have the choice to be kind to every living thing in spite of the many whose conscience has been seared, and who have forgotten what kindness even is.
