The 5th Principle of Reiki
An excerpt from the Renewed Spirit Reiki 1 Workbook sums this principle up perfectly...
"Kindness is something that can be created, but not given. This is because kindness is a state of being, not an action. We must all create kindness within ourselves by understanding that we are all at different stages on the same spiritual path. We are all connected. We are all perfect.
If we are kind,even in times of adversity, then kindness has become a permanent part of our autonomic response system. We become kind people. This does not mean we
let others walk all over us, for we must first be kind to ourselves.
By living in kindness we live in a way that is most beneficial to our mental well-being.
By living in kindness, we honor all that is with the grace and love of our spirit.
We honor the food we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and all that sustains us. Everything that surrounds us is a living object when looked at from an atomic level, so our kindness and respect must be infinite."
our planet...and Lord knows, this planet needs more LOVE!! When we give love we are not only uplifting others, but we receive that love back...times 10!
Blessings for a lifetime of Kindness and Love-based Actions♥
