“Just for today, do not worry.
Just for today, do not anger.
Earn your living honestly.
Honor your parents, teachers, and elders.
Show gratitude to every living thing.”

The Spiritual Precepts of Reiki

Mikao Usui Sensei

“This life passes as quickly as autumn clouds.
Family and friends are like passers-by in a market.
The demon of death approaches like twilight's shadows.
What the future holds is like a translucent fish in cloudy waters.
Life's experiences are like last night's dreams.
The pleasures of the senses, like an imaginary party.
Meaningless activities are like waves lapping on the surface of the water.”
