Reiki Principle #1
Just for today
Mother Teresa had a fabulous hands-on approach: ‘We have only today. Let us begin.’ This is what this introduction to the principles encourages us to do: begin. Implement the principles. Don’t wait! There’s no excuse. If we look carefully, we have got the time. The American Lama Surya Das says: ‘...it’s not time we lack, but focus, priorities, and awareness.’ Having the time or not is a matter of choice. ‘Just for today’ also means: ‘I may have tried yesterday, I may not have always succeeded yesterday, but yesterday is gone. Today is another day, another chance, and I will try again. Again and again, until I succeed.’ Every day is a blank sheet, and step by step, we improve.
