Reiki: how do we get to ‘getting it right’?

Article by Phillip Hawkins

The destination is only one part of our journey; with any journey we require a point of departure, a beginning, a point of reference before we can begin our journey.  A starting point that shows us where we are in relation to where we think we want to be, will determine the direction we need to take in order to reach our destination. If we don’t know where we are, or where we are going, how we are going to reach our destination, we may do no more than drift through life at the mercy of chance and circumstance, or stay rooted to the spot out of fear of being lost and alone.

If on our Reiki journey of discovery ‘getting it right’ is our destination, then we must accept that we approach it from a place of not knowing and possibly getting it wrong.  As we move towards our goal we move out of the darkness of ignorance and fear, and with this new dawning come’s the ability to see clearly and measure how far we have traveled, it’s only by looking back can we truly measure our progress and how far we have come.

What we see and believe is defined by our standpoint at any moment in time; each new step forward gives us a different perspective, and a different point of view.  Having arrived at our destination, we realise that not everyone may share our point of view.  Not everyone makes their journey willingly and some fail to reach their destination, and of those who find their way to getting it right, not everyone will be happy or satisfied with the truth they find there.

Sometimes we will be given the opportunity to rediscover new truths that have been lost in the mists of time; having reached our destination we may find ourselves alone for a short while, but our strength and determination to break new ground, gives courage to others to follow in our footsteps and make their own journey of getting it right.
