The central theme of both teachings seems to be expansion of consciousness...this becomes clear in chapter 10 of the master-key-system, section 24...

The square is the symbol of the earth, the circle with a central dot is the symbol of the repeatedly performing this exercise we are progressively enlightening the consciousness.

In reiki the key 3 describes energy descending from the cosmos through a tree that pulls it down to the earth ... under the tree is the picture of a fully conscious person, heart and mental calm, living in the now.

So do they have the same source and objective ?

Well yes they do ... the master key system offers a method for the individual to canalize spiritual energy to be used in the real world for various individual beneficial purposes ... reiki is a method of canalizing spiritual energy through the individual usually to be used for healing and restore wellbeing in humans, animals and plants.

They both canalize spiritual energy for it to be expressed in the physical world though our works, words and thoughts.

have fun

Hi Blubird, In reiki we consciously use the spiritual energy for the purpose of healing while in the master key system exercise you describe of the square and the circle with the dot it is done unconsciously for most think it is done to improve visualization technikue.

well for me paulina i use a point that is not there. to have a one pointed mind to focus concentrate and be aware.4. Ekagra/one-pointed: The ekagra mind is one-pointed, focused, concentrated (Yoga Sutra 1.32). When the mind has attained the ability to be one-pointed, the real practice of Yoga meditation begins. It means that one can focus on tasks at hand in daily life, practicing karma yoga, the yoga of action, by being mindful of the mental process and consciously serving others. When the mind is one-pointed, other internal and external activities are simply not a distraction.

In the second sutra of the Yoga Sutras, Yoga is defined as "Yogash Chitta Vritti Nirrudah," which is roughly translated as "Yoga is the control [Nirrudah] of the thought patterns of the mind field". Thus, this Nirrudah state of mind is the goal and definition of Yoga. It is the doorway by which we go beyond the mind.
