For the past weeks, I have writtens about Mikao Usui‘s 5 Universal Principals of Reiki, which can help us living in harmony with ourselves and others. That is – if we choose to living according to the principles again and again and again – day by day. The last Universal principle is about being kind and respectful to everybody and every living thing.
Let’s start here. Start by loving and respecting our parents. I am aware that many people possess deep traumas from their childhood because of their parents. I have several times had clients claiming that they feel more hatred than love towards their parents. Therefore, it might be difficult to show love and respect towards them. BUT – if you are not able to find just one tiny thing at your parents to be love and respect – there is at least one thing, you can be grateful of: Your parents were the ones giving you the life. Without your parents you wouldn’t be sitting here reading my blog (or anything else for that matter).
It is important to remember that we have all something to offer. Some people are just more easy to notice than others. But even though, you might think that the shop assistant in the supermarket is not fast enough, it does not give entitle you to yell at her/him. All human beings deserve respect. And even though, things might run very slowly, she/he does in fact help you getting all your goods checked in properly. (If you believe that you are better, there might be a self service counter). Remember that other people can take part in teaching you important stuff in life. It doesn’t matter, if they are young, old, rich, or poor. Everybody can help you grow by giving you insights and experience. They are also worthy of respect and love.
Other living beings
Speaking about showing respect towards all living thing, we shouldn’t exclude the animals and the plants. I am not speaking against neither vegans, vegetarians or meat eaters. it is important to respect that others choose for him/herself what they want to eat. At the same time, though, it is also important to treat the animals and plants with love and respect. Although, plants do not have a higher intelligence, they are not to be taken for granted. They too are necessary for our “system”.
Everyone is a part of the whole
We have all our own little share in getting our “system” to keep running.
This applies for you too. Remember to show respect and love towards yourself as well.
You are also important! And remember that you always have the choice – again and again and again – day by day.
Have a fantastic weekend – Life is waiting for you!
