This was first published in a journal in May 1993. I wrote this poem as a way of showing that what we think we are seeing can be different then what is actually happening or being felt by another.
There is sometimes more knowledge in the mystery around us than in what our logical mind sees. Sometimes what a person thinks he or she is seeing will bring sadness, but when viewed from a different angle it brings the opposite. This is a lesson learned in Gendai Reiki-ho, Komyo Reiki Kai and my guided meditations.
This reflects one of the concepts within the original spiritual practice of Usui Reiki Ryoho. As you read this poem know that the ‘look closer” actually means take off your blinders and look beyond.
Back to Meditation and Beyond where you find more ways to look beyond.
