I've really been feeling the desire to seek guidance to further my development.
I am in a unique position and do regard it as an opportunity.
Living in the mountainous secluded countryside of Northern Japan (Aomori prefecture) there just so happens
to be quite a few possible silent masters in the area.
I was being instructed in Iaido by one great sword master but stopped after a trip to Guam.
That, and sword masters in Japan don't teach the Japanese secrets to gaijin, instead we receive
the international version.
There is a renowned local reiki master who lives by a mysterious mountain here, called "Osorezan" (Mount Fear)
And I was thinking seeking instruction from him.
In your opinions, what makes a great

Humility is, I always feel, one of the highest attributes; but how to discern that?

The New Testamant refers to Jesus saying 'By their fruits ye shall know them', and elsewhere, exhorts his followers to be as 'wise as serpants and gentle as doves'.

A difficult question because as you imply, cultural norms are so variant.

I may come back later after further reflection.

It may be fortunate that you have such a dilemma !!

Last suggestion: follow your intuition & give synchronicity space to work

A great guide remains detached from his/her results. The ego is not fed. Their existence thrives on Faith in their word and propelling mankind. The guidance one receives from a master is blessed, as the master is the conduit for divine information. The guide/master has an awesome responsibility to his charges. Of course you will not know this first hand- how this particular master conducts himself, perhaps your own instinct will guide you , but at the risk of sounding repetitive, When the student is ready the teacher will come. Why, one should ask, are you ready right now, NE? Is it coincidence that a renowned local Reiki Master lives near you, relatively speaking? How nicely these events are lining up for you, seeing as you are
in a unique position and do regard it as an opportunity.
Knowing people see things such as this as an opportunity makes me smile. Best wishes in your venture!!

Thank you everyone!
I do want to seek instruction from the Reiki master, and had my wife contact him.
He only speaks Japanese though...and my grasp of the language isn't very proficient.
I could have my wife translate everything for me, but i don't think that would be very polite.
Its my fault, I've lived here for almost 7 years now and could be much more proficient than I am.
But I'm spoiled by my wife being fluent in both.
Ill have to study Japanese first.
Also, I've projected my request for guidance into the universe.

This may be a silly question, but if it is Reiki, is there a great deal of ned for speech, rather than touch ?

Did you see my post about speaking other languages? My invisible hat has been taken off, to you and your wife !!

...also transmission.....pretty sure this kind of learning skips the need for common language

.....and maybe working with an advanced teacher would open parts of your mind making learning the language seem easier and quicker?
