Five Principles

The following five principles were developed over a period of seven years by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Christian Minister and a Principal of Doshisha University in the 19th century.  He created these principles while working in a beggars colony. Dr. Usui is the creative force behind Reiki in which he associates these principles; however, I don’t think he’d mind at all if you practice them even without Reiki.

Just for today do not worry

Just for today do not anger

Honor your teachers parents, elders, neighbors and friends

Earn your living honestly

Show gratitude to every living thing
