I woke up in the morning, got ready for school. I went to school to have fun with friends, not so much for study. I ate more for my enjoyment, I dressed to feel better about myself.
Later, reality was still my daily life.
I woke up in the morning, got ready for work. I worked to make living, not so much for fun. I felt better knowing that I was capable of supporting myself, not begging for something.
Now, reality is still my daily life.
I wake up in the morning, spend about 30 minutes on spiritual training. I still work to make living, because I want to continue training as a reikongaku student. I eat, dress, play, work, but it's different now.
Reikongaku and spiritual training can be or have to be a part of our daily reality. It does not replace your reality, your daily life may look the same as before. But, spiritual training dramatically changes your spiritual state. I completely trust it.
You may have the impression that spiritual things are something outside of your reality. It's something you may think about from time to time, but just as watching a movie or reading a fiction, it does not become a part of your reality, your daily life. Why? because you cannot see or feel it.
It may still take a long time before spiritual things are accepted and considered to be reality.
But as long as it's there and functioning, it doesn't matter how we put it.
It's there, and that is the reality.
