Just For Today...

The Reiki Precepts, as they are often interpreted or presented, begin with the words, 

Just for today...

In other words, it can be daunting to take on a task or project, or commitment for the whole year -  for the duration of your whole entire life - or even for a week sometimes...

But we can always undertake a task or commit to something for just a day...

We can decide to do a juice fast for a day, or do a spiritual practice - just for this one day...

And then the next day, we can do the same - that is - commit again just for that day...

In time each day will accumulate on a bed of other days, creating a cushioning in our lives. A spiritual practice will flourish and nourish. A change to more healthy ways of eating and/or exercising will contribute to our well-being...

At this time of year, we tend to take on more than we can ever accomplish realistically. So instead of a monumental undertaking - say to yourself, "Just for today..." Plant seeds, and in the springtime, marvel at the nascent blossoms of what you have sown...

Just for today - 
Do whatever you need to do,
And whatever is asked of you,
Knowing that in the end,
All is as it needs to be - 
And all shall be well!
