"Real happiness is found in the struggles we undergo to realise our goals, in our efforts to move forward." Daisaku Ikeda
Last night I hosted a young women’s meeting for our local district.
All of the young women across New Zealand are heading into their 100 day challenge, of chanting Daimoku and Gongyo morning and night to put to test their determinations!
At last night’s meeting we all gave two determinations that we would like to tackle and have clarity / Absolute victory over by the end of the 100 days.
The goals that I have set for myself are:
1 – Build and strengthen my relationships with the Young women’s Division members, in particular I have agreed to encourage and support a younger member in my district.
2 – I want to manifest / Save enough money by the end of the 100 days to buy a new desktop computer. As mine died mysteriously after moving… GAH
3 – I want to beat my pilonidal sinus through faith and alternative medicines. This means chanting every day, morning and night to strengthen my mind and faith in turning my poison into medicine.
YES – I couldn’t help but issue three determinations, and I’m sure the list will grow as the 100 days progress. But my main focus is getting on top of these ones, and hoping for actual proof so that I can share my victory with other Young Women and members at the training course in July.
This is what makes our practice. The sharing of victory after victory!
Without proof from members, that by chanting Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo we can create our own happiness and manifest our true determinations – We wouldn’t practice.
It is in our district meetings that we engage, and inspire each other to set lofty goals, in order to transform ourselves and our environments. We share Victories… But also we encourage those who are still fighting for their determinations to come to fruition.
I wish all of the New Zealand members embarking on their 100 day challenge, absolute courage and fighting spirit to make this a challenge to remember. A challenge to celebrate.
