Please refer to your posts:

In lot of spiritual practices and cultures faith is not seen as grasping onto
certain belief but rather opening oneself up. Embracing our own faults and being
completely sincere and honest. I asked what are the advantages that Reiki has
over others or how can Reiki help one be more intimate with him.

I won't be coming to Reiki forum and talk about Hinduism, Buddhism etc as a
path but certainly can talk about its relation or roots if the topic is such. When
you say lot of spiritual practices and cultures you are in fact talking about
them!

"Same way like you are digging into Sanatan Dharma teachings !." Firstly I am
not digging I am indicating the roots of your statement- that are coming may be
subconsciously when you say We don't have to change our religion or belief to
practice Reiki .

Paths are different but goal is the same. Reiki is not a religion even though it's
roots are from buddhisim . I am saying reiki is a narrower version of the larger
science with certain tools chosen from a larger toolset to ease down the path of
the individual in the attainment of peace without interfering with the internal
belief system. I am also saying path is same when you are not taking Reiki as a
religion and if you are then it is a subset.

The topic of discussion is faith in practice and you are saying Off course there
are different paths and Reiki as a spiritual practice is very complete in itself to be
a path to finding self. Bible tells us that Jesus is the One who came to heal.
Then Jesus said, 'Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy
burdens, and I will give you rest' (Matthew 11:28). God does not want or expect
us to help ourselves. He is the source of life, of all that is good and true. Those
who refuse to acknowledge Jesus will never come to a place of spiritual healing.
For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear
with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them
(Matthew 13:15) (Ref http://www.gotquestions.org/energy-healingmedicine.html). Wikipedia states In March 2009, the Committee on Doctrine of
the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops issued the document,

Guidelines for Evaluating Reiki as an Alternative Therapy, in which they declared


that the practice of reiki was superstition, being neither truly faith healing nor
science-based medicine

"And the first person who should challenge is ourselves ". It is ok for us to hold
different opinions from others and it is also ok for us to challenge each other
woe betide the person who never has their opinions challenged!"- then you go on
to say "However from your posts it seem like you are pointing that Reiki is not a
spiritual path to find inner self ? And it is OK if you disagree." you further say " It
seems to me you are saying that a spiritual path of Reiki is incapable of doing all
that ? Doesn't it means a judgement on your part ??" -None of my posts say that;
rather I am trying to refine my tools in my individual pursuit. If I did not believe in
Reiki I would not be here. I am wondering why would you go on saying from "
challenge ourselves " to " its ok for us to hold different opinions" to " pointing
that Reiki is not a spiritual path" and yet again blaming me "that a spiritual path
of Reiki is incapable" with the last statement as The topic of discussion was faith
in practice and someone questioned that Reiki is not a path . And we went into
philosophies. If you see closely the whole discussion was to gain a firmer
stronger faith in Reiki !
