Today I read the newspaper : wars, murders, rape, greed, gossip, selfishness….. and also a few wonderful little glimpses of positive change: the possible end of polio, new scientific research in the medical field, and a few stories of the generosity and kindness of individuals. It made me wonder about how this balance between the dark and the light might be changed as this century moves on. For me, the Reiki Home project offers the potential of tipping the balance in favour of the light.
I imagine a place where the values are based on co-operation instead of competition, the conscious development of new strategies and structures to support the huge, if currently half-hidden, shift towards a society aware of the bigger picture of planetary evolution, a place of learning, spiritual growth and healing in the context of reiki. A place of joy, music, dance. I imagine a place where humans can live in harmony with the land in a way that has been largely forgotten in modern times, using both the wisdom of the past and the eco-technology of the future. All this is possible, and more, so let’s hold the vision and keep faith with Reiki !
