“Those that work with compassion for others need to receive compassion from others too. We are not Source/God for other people. We just use Source in our compassionate work. You have to create your own hook-up.”-ME
“We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.
We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.
We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.
We WORK with being,
but non-being is what we USE.
This is from the Tao-Te-Ching, #11. It will help you understand Reiki. “Being” is your apparent dense body and everything around you manifested in the world that you see and touch that you think is real. But what it USES to exist is Non-being, KI, QI, or organized energy. All of life is infused with it. And there is an intelligent organization of it as well.
“Personal Integrity fires the Virtues Manager”-Me
If you didn’t need human permission to be born and you don’t need human permission to die, why do you think you need human permission to live your life as you see fit, or that is at least a good expansive experience for you. The same Energy that got you here and helps you leave here…HAS you here.
Humor lightens things up. I giggle quite a bit. Seems like there is always a new situation to get used to, someone I’ve never met. My kitty sticks his paw in his water first to get a feel for things. Good idea! I like to tread lightly at first too before I drink.
