Thanks to Komyo Reiki Kai New England & Komyo Reiki Kai New York, Hyakuten Inamoto Sensei is back to New York. I was so happy to see him and to re-embrace his teaching. When myself hosted the Shinpiden Class at Komyo Reiki Retreat, I could not give full attention on his teachings as when I just sit in the class. Sensei’s presence brings peace and calm to those who are receptive and attentive. Just having Sensei around is a gift.
Karen (Komyo Reiki Kai New England) suggested we all visit 9/11 memorial. She carefully registered and printed a visitor pass for each of us. It was the first visit to all, who live in New York and lived through 9/11. It is very symbolic for me, visiting this memorial with Sensei and other Shihans. I never thought of or interested to go. In fact, I still have the image of twin towers collapsing in the smoke with plane going into them. I remember seeing this image on live from where I worked in Upper West Side and on television. It was the day, I did 3 shifts continuously as RN, since all public transport shut off.
Visit to 9/11 Memorial: We were a group of 5+ and no cab driver wants to drive us in one cab. There was a limo parked in front of the hotel, waiting for customer. Nechama got a very very reasonable price, so we all in the limo to visit 9/11 Memorial.
We all placed our hands on the plate(where all names are printed) of each tower, gave Reiki. It was meant to be, on this day, in company of Sensei and all Komyo Reiki Shihans, to be at 9/11 Memorial. And so it is.
