…if your practice is full practice, you know, it means that you are ready to break the shell and jump out as a small chick, you know… So, you know, at that time there is no self, you know. It looks like he is in a shell, but he is ready to break the shell, and at that time, you know, mother hen will peck, peck. That is oneness of your practice and enlightenment. Fffft! At that time there is no hen or no chicken—chick. They are one. They—he is one with everything.
When we are engaged in “full practice”, we transcend the need to “do” anything.
Like egg shell fragments, the external aspects of our practice – hand positions, symbols (shirushi) or mantras (jumon) – begin to fall away. We are completely present with and illuminated by our Great Bright Light.
In full practice, we are Reiki.
