A Ship to cross the Sea of Suffering

"Real happiness is found in the struggles we undergo to realise our goals, in our efforts to move forward." Daisaku Ikeda

One step at a time…

I am sitting in the tension of all that is my life at the moment. I am trying earnestly to keep practicing with a fighting spirit to overcome the challenges I have been facing lately. To continue chanting with the attitude of winning in all that comes across my path, and for my state of Buddhahood to grow under the pressure of change.

This whole month has been challenging. Every single day I’ve felt the anxiety creeping up. Making me familiar with all of those thoughts of self doubt  that siege my mind when the going gets tough.  I am lucky that through the Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism I can truly use all of these obstacles as a spring from which to draw forth value. Creating value from hardship and the learnings of life and self. I am certainly focussed on advancing through my personal Human Revolution in these times. And I WILL win. I will come out stronger, and feel a great sense of achievement for working through the deeper karmic tendencies in my own life that lead me to reoccurring themes and habits.  I am still chipping away, and making solid progress in transforming the very core of my being. You know the best news? You can do that too…I’m just here to role model that this practice and through our own self belief we can overcome any obstacle.

I’ve noticed some cycles that I no longer want to continue. I am confident that this is my time to shine, and to stand on my own two feet as I build a solid foundation for the career and dreams I’ve envisioned over the years. Only to be held back by the emotions and thoughts of others. There is no more blame, no more excuses because It is I who has to take responsibility for the direction in which my life travels. WE all do.

This is time for me. My education, and my future of hope.

I’ve been leading the way in SGI activities this month! With no slowing down in sight. I had the most wonderful opportunity to emcee WPC just passed, and for our District General Meetings I am co-hosting with my kosen rufu buddy. As well as presenting an introduction study to Nichiren Buddhism. I am nervous because I feel pressure, but mostly because I want to do the best job I can do! in my personal capacity.

These are causes that will set forth in motion a great change for me and the events of my future.

I’ve also decided to seriously consider returning to education and pursuing a Bachelor of Arts next year, so that I can further support my efforts in working towards a world of peace, education and culture. To compliment my passions for making a difference in the world, and my communities here in NZ.

Wish me luck *not that I need it* I have a meeting with the University next week to discuss my study options.

I won’t be focussed on money. I have faith that I will be supported in these endeavours by the mystic law. By my own determination to work towards what I think is the right thing to do! What will drive me further towards our mission of world peace and dialogue.
