On our paths, which will be many, we can look within to explore and discover what compels us to be who we are in a given moment and across time. And, Genshai compels us to understand that it matters how we choose to show up or be in our world.
The way you treat yourself reflects the way you treat others. It is not selfish in nature to serve yourself first. You cannot give what you do not have.
Genshai is truly the highest level of belief. Believe” means to Be Love. When I believe in myself, I love myself. Believe that abundance is your birthright. As you think abundantly, so will you give in abundantly.
Abundance flows to and through us.
This coin is your touchstone to remind you to hold yourself in your excellence. The first coin you give to yourself. Always carry it with you. The constant reminder will impact the way you treat yourself and others.
The second coin is to be gifted to a person who positively affected your life. As you present it to that person, share the story of how your relationship has affected you.
As you give the coin, anticipate that others who appreciate you may gift one in return to you. Imagine the collection you may accumulate by honoring Genshai, “Never treat anyone in a manner which makes them feel small, including yourself.”
Living Genshai becomes – and is - a daily practice. Life is in motion and with it come specific opportunities and challenges. The awareness we cultivate about how we treat ourselves and others heightens our ability to interact positively in the circumstances we face.
We do not walk our path alone, and must honor those who influence, mentor and support us.
In striving to Live Genshai, we will need to consistently address the elements faced in the nature of who we are as people and part of a greater humanity.
These 5 coins are for the people who surround you, who influence you, who mentor you and who support you.
Gift them to each person and tell them why it is important to you to do so. How does each person practice Genshai in your life and in their own?
Mastering Genshai is a perpetual path. We all need an influx of goodness and encouragement. We need to be reminded to step up as we step out of comfort zones and encounter the ‘stuff’ of life. We need to feel loved as we sometimes fall down and as such, we need to seek support to be lifted as we also lift others. A true master is continually learning, which results in the wisdom we must impart. In doing so the cycle continues, in giving Genshai.
As we are "Holding ourselves and others in their own excellence" we collectively begin to master Genshai and bring the very best to the world.
