    got sent this through facebook, its good

    There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is Yesterday, with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.

    Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone.

    The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow, with its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise, and poor performance. Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control. Tomorrows sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds; but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is as yet unborn.

    This leaves only one day: Today.

    Anyone can fight the battles of just one day. Its only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities, Yesterday and Tomorrow, that we break down. It is not the experience of today that drives us mad, it is remorse and bitterness for something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Let us therefore, live this one full Today."

    That's really good Les.

    In Reiki we are taught to try and live by the following precepts for our self (spiritual) development;

    For today only:
    Do not anger
    Do not worry
    Be humble
    Be honest in your work
    Be compassionate to yourself and others

    Do gassho every morning and evening
    (Gassho is basically self healing / meditation.)

    I`ve recently been for some reiki and its strange but marvellous stuff.
    The lady doing the session said you don`t have to believe in anything or think anything particular, just relax and she moved her hands over me without making contact.
    I saw various colours and felt hot and cold in various regions which tied in with problems I`ve been having.
    It`s non-contact and safe and costs about the same as a crate of ale, well worth a look.

    Today is a gift, that's why we call it "the present"
