Mikao Usui, founder of the system of Reiki, believed the precepts to be important guides to spiritual development and healing. Finding ways to connect with them in daily life is a great way to support one's inner growth.
In addition, animals can be wonderful teachers of living in balance and harmony. Learning to observe how animals live by the precepts is a great way to remain mindful of them in our own lives, and can in turn assist us in living in harmony and balance.
