There are many practices within the system of Reiki, but Mikao Usui pointed out again and again that the essential focus is rediscovering our original nature. This is because it is only through this rediscovery that we can help others heal with compassion and wisdom.
Do you believe in Ghosts? Do you believe that an entity unfathomable to all that we know can interact with ordinary people in the most destructive ways possible? Our science tells us that we should not believe in such things, that these events are simply rational events, explainable as misidentified occurrences or psychological afflictions.
When the worth of one’s being is directly associated with the illusionary perception of identity, it can be very easy for the self-esteem to take a nosedive so deep that a new tenant is forced to move in and restore order. Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, lords and again ladies, I introduce unto you, the one and only, the Mr. popular right now, Misteeeeeeer Ego! (Cue the jazz hands and the cymbal sounds.)
WHAT, indeed, is theosophy? This question, now being asked with increasing earnestness, cannot be answered in one sentence, but the leaders of the Theosophical Movement have given a few pithy expressions of its various aspects which form a fitting introduction.
Healing can be defined as bringing the body, emotions, mind and spirit back into harmony. It does not necessarily imply a cure, although it frequently ameliorates conditions. Crystal healing is a gentle and non-invasive process that creates balance on all levels, and one that can provide support to the body’s own internal healing systems. The lore on which it is based has its roots in antiquity and the body of knowledge is, therefore, supported by thousands of years of practical experience.
Imagine yourself a child looking at a holographic picture. What do you see there? An ugly witch? Turn the picture a bit, and now what do you see? A beautiful flower? Actually, both the witch and the flower exist in the holographic picture, we just observe them from a different angle or perspective and recreate images as we see them in our mind. If we see life as a multilayered and multifaceted hologram – it means that we accept that life manifests holographically out of light by thought.
On any given day, there are nearly 437,500 youth in the foster care system in the United States. Of the thousands of youth who enter the system each year, most arrive with little more than the clothes on their backs. If they have any personal belongings, many carry them in trash bags. It is a time of great upheaval and instability, and their first foster home placement is unlikely to be their last. Many youth in foster care will be moved from home to home multiple times, carrying their life’s treasures in a trash bag.
Subjective experience must inform physics and philosophy, but it should be assessed carefully.
