Reiki Journey – Day1 “Dedication”

nh2The voyage of discovery lies not in finding new landscapes, but in having new eyes – Marcel Proust 

I invite you to come with me on a 21 day journey to discover me . I challenge you to also find the courage and strength to look inside and discover the beauty and the blessing of being/ seeing YOU.

I believe every life has a dream, a dream that quietly insists to be fulfilled. Such dreams are a significant part of the blessing of being alive.  For far too many of us the dream stays buried in the mud of mediocrity, as we struggle to find it, to know the truth about who we are in this world, why we are and what we are to be to this world… to know the dream, to live our purpose.

SHARE my journey in the quest to know and to live my purpose.

Day 1 – Handwrite 2 pages every day for 21 days. Now that would be monumental in its meaning and perhaps, not perhaps, but most definitely be a measure of my desire to grow in the grace of my calling. Do I have the passion to push through the usual excitement and promise of a perceived spiritual benefit? I know I can, but WILL I?

I don’t even want to admit to myself that I may not have the discipline to pursue this noble endeavor. I’m convinced that this transformative tool will further my development as a man who will, for the sake of his family, community and world dedicate himself to the discipline this will take. I don’t want to do what I do want to do!  …. but nevertheless…not my will!

So this day I dedicate myself to a 21 day Reiki journey. My theme for day one is DEDICATION.

 I shall sit in my gazebo and see if the blessing of this cool breeze will blow a little inspiration my way. What is “dedication”? 

Wikipedia: dedication is the fact of consecrating an altar, temple, church or other sacred building. What does it mean to ME?

It is the setting apart of my life, the rest of my life, for divine use and noble purposes. “Fact of consecrating”, sounds like a flesh killing concept to me. Ouch!                                                                                                                            Today is done…. almost, and like so many times in my past I’ve started strong, but this time I’m determined to finish strong! I look forward to the transformation. I don’t want to be the same man then as now.

Men may not know how fruits grow, but they do know that they cannot grow in 5 minutes.”  Harry Drummond
