“I am convinced that human nature is basically affectionate and good. If our behavior follows our kind and loving nature, immense benefits will result, not only for ourselves, but also for the society to which we belong. I generally refer to this sort of love and affection as a universal religion. Everyone needs it, believers as much as non-believers. This attitude constitutes the very basis of morality.”
This was a posting I put on my Facebook page in June. I often repost qoutes from the Dalai Lama as I find him to be one of our most kind hearted spiritual leaders. This month I would like to encourage everyone to reflect on these words as well as the Reiki Ethics.
Just for Today Do Not Worry.
Just for Today Do Not Anger.
Honor Your Parents, Teachers and Elders.
Earn Your Living Honestly.
Show Gratitude to Everything
Dr. Mikao Usui
When we spread unkind words, thoughts or actions towards others we get caught up in a web of anger, despair and illness. When we meditated every morning and evening on loving kindness only abundance of beauty surrounds us.
If you find yourself depressed, angry or in a rut, try waking up every morning and reflecting on these concepts. Try only thinking kind thoughts, or saying kind words for the next month. How do you do that? Well, if you stick your foot in your mouth, like we all do, you apologize and make sure you reconcile and provide healing for the person. Pray for those you have harmed and send light and love. If someone is being unkind to you, send them Light and Love and Pray for them. In some cases you may have to remove yourself from the situation to avoid being around them. But you can always continue to pray for them. Then concentrate on sending as much love and kindness to other people you see and know in your life on a daily basis.
If you double and triple the effort to spread joy to others you won’t even think of the pain you are in that other people are causing you. Send a card to someone that is going through a hard time. Pick up some $8 flowers from Shaws and bring them to someone’s house “just because”…you are spreading kindness. Or as one of my kind friends does all the times, bring over some herb plants from your garden to a friend. Leave an angel card or inspirational note in the covered bill with your cash or credit card slip for the waiter/waitress your next time at the restaurant……especially the one that was rude to you.
The tendency is to get angry and resentful back when people are rude or unkind. And of course, often it is people in our life that we are the most kind to or that we have gone out our way to help and then they end up being rude or discourteous to us. So this is when our Spirit Guides are really putting us to the test. But this is when it is even more important to shower them with patience or kindness. Again, in some cases, it may be toxic to continue relationships if a person become overly negative or hostile in your life. But always send them love and light.
So try for the next month to concentrate every morning and/or evening on these concepts. And Then “Do” the Behavior that the Dalai Lama encourages and “follow” the concept. See what happens in your life. I would love to have some readers send me stories or examples in their lives that I can print in the next newsletter! Especially those of you that are going through challenges in your life. I will take the challenge with you! We can compare notes.
