Today is the 50th Anniversary of ‘Earth Day.’ Be sure to spend some time in nature today, in gratitude, as you celebrate this wondrous planet where we all live. We are the earth’s caregivers and protectors, and that was never more evident and important than now. As Astronaut Carl Sagan’s photo demonstrated and spoke of, the earth is but a tiny speck of dust in the Universe. “Everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives,” Sagan later wrote. “On a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”Candy Hansen, a planetary scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory who worked on the Voyager imaging team noted, “It also made me think about how vulnerable our tiny planet is.”
What Settings Do You Prefer for Relaxation and Learning?
The Reiki (Kyogi) Principles –
Today Only …
Let Go of Anger,
Let go of Worry,
Work Diligently (on one’s self)
Be Kind to (Self and) Others.
—From Founder of Usui Reiki Ryohō, USUI Mikao Sensei
(B. August 15, 1865 – D. March 9, 1926; as written on his memorial stone.)
Photos here are of places where sessions, classes and retreats have been/will be offered. The first photo was taken at the North Shore Medical Center, in the hospital. No matter where I have offered reiki sessions people report “feeling relaxed.” So I wonder, how much do the aesthetics of the setting matter? What are your thoughts?
