"Real happiness is found in the struggles we undergo to realise our goals, in our efforts to move forward." Daisaku Ikeda
Hey there, I just wanted to welcome and thank a few of my new followers it is so humbling to have eyes cast upon this blog from time to time. I hope you find pearls of wisdom and hope from time to time.
Over the last year or so I’ve been really coming back to my true self. Unlocking the things that make me unique, and exploring the strengths I have. One of them is the ability to express myself through words. Highs and lows, and all of what is in between I find ways to share my humanity with those around me. As a Buddhist who practices Nichiren Buddhism this humanity and ability to tackle it, is the pillar of growth for me. It is understanding that through steadfast practice and determination to explore how to become a better person I can use any obstacle to grow new wings! To find strength in the weakness. Words become a springboard of realisation and growth, so I’d like to share a poem with you that I have been working on lately. I am hoping to perform it at World Peace Chanting in the coming months. Given I find the courage and strength to put aside my fears.
I have fallen in love with spoken word, and am trying to see if I could use this medium as a way to express the messages I yearn to share. So here goes:
A practice of promise, individual built happiness
Our faith and perseverance the real test
Digging to depths, in the hope of unlocking our best
A highest potential, not supernatural
It is in our interest to invest in taking action
Learning to understand reaction
To embrace the environment from within
Cultivating the attitude to win
against life’s triumphs and tribulations
Because life is a work in progress,
Learning to digest karmic stress,
coined human revolution
Chanting to find a solution
To a challenging situation
Is the golden key,
Through dialogue we can unlock the pillars of faith, practice and study
A deeper look of what is inside of me
Understanding what we ALL could achieve
Kosen rufu the mission of world peace
As we cross the sea of suffering
Buddhahood enables us to perceive
The true nature of reality,
fighting against innate darkness residing within you and me,
Analyzing our true victory
Determining that we will strengthen against these forces
For you and me are ordinary, yet extraordinary
As Boddhisattvas of the Earth
Turning obstacles into true self worth
What do you think?
Stay well, and love each other. x
