Think of CureZone as a microcosm of the world at large. We each have our own concept of what is right and wrong, but if you believe strongly in what is right- don't walk out and abandon it because you see part of it as wrong!
CureZone has for the most part been a Godsend for me - a forum where I can learn as well as share without fear of being banned for non mainstream ideas and information about healing. Even moreso, a place to help others and genuinely make a difference. And a place to take a stand against the powers that be that would control our lives and our health.
And I have made some very special friends here too - friends for life I believe, and I hope to make more.
Now, before I get too sappy, I will say that it hasn't ALL been a bed of roses and I did have to make a stand, go toe to toe and set some limits regarding trolls and personal attacks. As a result, I believe that it is obvious that some people are here, often in multiple guises, who have personal agendas that have nothing to do with healing or educating instead of medicating, and if it were left up to me I would banish the trolls, troublemakers who resort to personal attack and multiple ID rules breakers or, better still, put their comments on moderated status.
Then again, perhaps my good friend Trapper, one of those special new friends I am talking about, is at least partiallly right when he says part of the value of CureZone is the same lack controls we sometimes bemoan.
I had rather think about the good CureZone has done and can continue to do and keep fighting towards that end than to abandon such a noble effort, however flawed or not, to those I disagree with.
Just my two cents.
PS - If Zoebess is who you are talking about, I think you have erred badly. She is another of the special ones I have met here.
I believe you are mistaken with regard to Zoebess. Those symbols you speak of are not occult. They represent the body chakras, another word for energy. Reiki is energy healing\. Furthermore, science is starting to recognize the importance of these chakras.
I furthermore concur with DQ's post. Please reconsider before leaving. Like the world, itself, there is good, bad, things that we agree with, and things we don't. Overall, Curezone is a very valuable community. We would like to see you stay.
I admit straight up that I am no Reiki master, but am always ready to learn more. Could you enlighten us as to how what you have said to Paulette and Zoebess conforms to the five major stated principles, or precepts, of Reiki:
Principle 1 has been variously stated as:
Do not anger
Don't get angry
Thou shall not anger
I will not be angry
I will let go of anger
Principle 2 has been variously stated as:
Do not worry
Don't be anxious
Thou shall not worry
I will not worry
I will let go of worry
Principle 3 has been variously stated as:
Thou shall be grateful for the many blessings
I will give thanks for my many blessings
I will count my many blessings
Express your thanks
Show gratitude to every living thing
Honor your parents, teachers and elders
Principle 4 has been variously stated as:
Devote yourself to your work
Earn thy livelihood with honest labor
I will do my work honestly
Be diligent in your business
Principle 5 has been variously stated as:
Be kind to people
Be kind to others
Be kind to thy neighbors
I will be kind to every living thing
I will be kind to every living creature
Show compassion to every living thing
And now I must interject my two cents. What are you talking about? Surely you have Zoe mixed up with someone else. Zoe is one of the most honest and fair people that I have come across. Maybe your complaint comes from the fact that she speaks the "truth" an the "truth" is sometimes hard to take.
She in no way deserves your last post to her.
