Understandings – by Pesi Shroff
What is the purpose of my earthly sojourn?
Humanity, as part of the evolution process, elected to go through the earthly experience on Mother earth in human form and experiment with duality consciousness and free will to learn and grow in spirit.
Earth is a school in which we learn only through practical experience; all other things such as knowledge in the academic and religious sector, spiritual and religious practices are tools to work with. As such through the experimentation process, we explore going from one extreme to another eventually finding the balance.
What is the evolutionary time-frame? Where is humanity headed?
There is human life-form on a multitude of stars, planets and galaxies throughout the universe, with varying levels of consciousness. Over the years, people from various star nations and galaxies have elected to go through human experience as a means of learning to foster and further spiritual growth – the earthly sojourn being transitory in nature. There are, thus, on this planet human beings with a wide range of characteristics, personalities, outlooks and experiences with whom we intermingle and explore. We have erected….MORE financial, health and social institutions, and set up systems that were intended to serve humanity, as humanity progressed in consciousness.
However, these institutions and systems, have taken on a different role and have evolved into entities that focus on their self-interests. Contrary to our universal responsibility, this modus of operandi has culminated in disregard for the well-being of all life forms.
As such, these institutions and systems have outlived their purpose. This learning phase of our experience in the third dimension is ending as per the Divine Plan of the Creator, beckoning a new beginning for Mother Earth. Humanity is now at crossroads and is in a period of a major shift in consciousness to ‘Oneness of all’, and associated with it an Era of Peace, good will and abundance. This entails crumbling of the old institutions that have ceased to serve humanity’s well-being and erecting new ones that serves humanity in the next level of consciousness. At an individual level, it entails letting go of:
- self-limiting and debilitating belief systems and thought patterns that no longer serve our highest good; and
- old ways of doing things (‘I the Doer’) that will no longer work for us and embrace new ways of doing things that reflect ‘I the Instrument working for the greater good of humanity i.e. ‘I as an individual, part of the whole’. The latter embraces the concept of “oneness of all” and resonates with the interconnectedness element of humanity.
Towards that end, new transmutation and transformational energies are being dispensed on the planet to achieve this objective. Additionally, the practice of Reiki furthers understanding of self and others and has the ability to transmute and transform all limiting aspects of our daily lives. This expedites the process and brings all aspects of our Being into harmony and balance consistent with the new objective.
IMPACT OF MIND-CONDITIONING
Have you ever wondered what mind-conditioning has done to humanity as a whole and you as an individual? Why has humanity not been able to find equitable solutions to world’s problems or their personal problems? How can I liberate myself from mind-conditioning?
Over the years, the programming of the mind associated with learned knowledge, learned behaviour and belief systems has enticed humanity to operate within the established parameters set by the financial, health and social structures/institutions. Also, with the explosion of communication devices and continuous broadcast of world news and information programs, selectively presented by (so-called) experts and pundits has the potential to further condition our mind and influence our belief systems and thought patterns. This effectively keeps us operating within their set parameters and prevents individuals from reaping their full potential. Additionally...MORE
it hampers their ability to transcend all self-limiting and debilitating belief systems and thought patterns. The constant challenges posed in the day-to-day living activities have preoccupied humanity in dealing with them, and has become an integral part of living. This has culminated in humanity becoming mind-dominated and in the process allowed the mind to overshadow guidance – guidance being our true knowing. Instead of seeking guidance to come up with innovative solutions to resolve problems, we tend to rely primarily on learned knowledge – the latter has failed us repeatedly in the past.
There are ways in which we can liberate this mind-domination by re-programing our mind through the medium of positive affirmations, “manthras”, using various techniques/therapies – Reiki being one of the primary means; ultimately, it is the transformation of the mind that will eradicate its dominance. The transformation of our mind takes place when one allows one’s true guidance (that stems from our heart) to do the suggesting. For the heart cannot be ‘conned’. Our heart can always be relied upon to offer true guidance, yet we have been regulated to listen to the mind-generated fears. To learn more about the challenges posed to become in tune with our guidance and distinguishing it from ego-based mind see workshop on:
- Reiki Level I, Reiki Level II and Reiki Master-Teacher courses and initiations ;

Have you ever wondered why am I different? What would it be like to be the same as others? What am I doing on this planet?
EMBODY THE TRUTH AND FREEDOM, AND BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO BE
Through establishing societal norms, an element of power and control, the tendency of humanity is “to be like the Jones”. In such an environment there is nothing new to learn as we merely mimic each other. However, as each of us is unique and being different, we lean from each other the lessons of life and become better individuals. Over the years, governments, businesses, organizations, institutions, etc have effectively used labeling and compartmentalizing people as a means to promote separation/segregation to direct the destiny of humanity for self-interest…MORE
Most of us have observed that as individuals we have a tendency to look down on others who do NOT fit our mental model. We thus experience difficulty in accepting those who are different – be they physically/ mentally challenged, associated with weight-related or gender-related issues, physical appearance/ demeanour, etc in the belief that most of us fall within what is generally referred to as ‘normal’. ‘Normal’ is a fictitious standard arbitrarily set to foster separation/segregation. This paradigm of marginalization has been shattered by individuals demonstrating that neither their physical or mental conditions affect their performance in a negative way. Au contrare, in several cases they have outperformed others and, as they are extremely gifted, they have brought to this world very significant learning experiences for humanity that of“accepting” each other for who they are, just the way they are, including their perceived short-comings. For it is BECAUSE OF OUR SHORT-COMINGS, that we learn and grow in spirit. People, who are extremely gifted, have a lot to contribute to society but as they are different from the rest, or as they are carrying a heavy load – be it associated with karma or health-related issues, they are not readily accepted by society. This sets in motion the withdrawal of individuals and eventual depression—the extent of depression varying between individuals. The medical community, based on their understanding and knowledge, sees them as persons with disorders, labels them and treats them with mind-influencing drugs, often without success. With the passage of time, various drugs with significant side effects are used in their treatment; all in the belief that it will help the individual. However, Reiki, which deals with the root cause of the problem and acts to harmonize at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels, is known to have transcended medical/mental/ emotional limitations with success in certain instances.
