Reiki Wisdom

This may, or may not, help someone deal with things and I hope its not too weird.

The reiki precepts asks you to attempt to follow their guidance each day, and whether successful or not, you simple start afresh the next day without judgement. They go:-

Do not anger

Do not worry

Be humble and grateful

Be true to yourself

Show compassion to yourself (most importantly) and all others.

It encourages you to be the best version of yourself each day. Do the best you can do, not what anyone else expects. It is about acceptance and learning to live in the moment for this is all we have. To dwell on the past creates stress, to dwell on the future creates anxiety. Neither we can control, only the present.

It has helped me deal with caring for elderly parents and it will help me with whatever this new journey puts in my path.

Hope this is of use.

    Not at all weird. Just very useful to all.

    I'm reminded of a piece called 'Cherokee Wisdom' which I've put up here once or twice over the years. I'm not sure the Cherokee would recognise it but it's certainly wisdom and I think it can apply to dealing with arthritis..

    One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, The battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all. 

    One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment Inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. 

    The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." 

    The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?" 

    The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.
