Inner Revolution. . .

Inner Revolution. . .

I speak of change for it is the one constant. The steps required to accept the march of time are short of a inner revolution.”Not he is great who can alter matter, but he who can alter my state of mind.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson. Our progress in whatever means we define it depends upon one thing – we must undergo an inner reformation. Be assured that the challenge to which we set ourselves day after day – our human revolution – is the path to bringing about a reformation in our families, local regions and...

Embrace. . .

We must embrace our mountains. In any earnest struggle, there come crucial challenges–mountains that must be scaled and conquered if we are to move forward. In Buddhist practice and life too, we face such crucial challenges. If we hope to advance and attain the upmost understanding, then we must prevail over our mountains and rest in our efforts.

Faith. . .

Faith is the secret to happiness for all people. When we truly forge our minds of faith, we become eternal victors throughout the three existences of past, present and future. Strong faith enables us to display our wisdom appropriately, so that we can take advantage of change and move forward in the directions of hope, victory and our abilities to have faith in ourselves and our processes.

Altruism. . .

If we light the way for another, it will also brighten our own way” (Gosho Zenshu, p. 1598). Be confident that the higher your flame of altruistic action burns, the more its light will suffuse your life with happiness. Those who possess an altruistic spirit are the candles who shine their light for all.

One Thought. . .

One Thought. . .

The power of one thought can change everything because that thought alone can ignite other thoughts, and set alight a cascade of similar thoughts with life-changing effects. One thought alone is like a seed dropped into the ground that germinates the mind and awakens your true potential. How does all this relate to you? Your thoughts are incredibly powerful in a multitude of ways. The power of the subconscious mind is potent to the degree that it can bring about spontaneous healings and effortlessly figure out complex problems. Therefore, be...

Who Do You Think You Are?

Who Do You Think You Are?

Who you think you are affects every choice you make and every interaction you have with others. It also affects every feeling you have about yourself and the way you behave in life. Since most of us didn’t learn what a difference a thought makes in kindergarten or Life 101, we have to do it now. Who of us grew up knowing that we can make ourselves feel happy anytime we choose to do so? And who knew that it begins with changing a myriad of negative thoughts into a single positive thought that will multiply into more and more positive thoughts?...

Today. . .

Today, many will awaken with a fresh sense of inspiration. Why not you? Today, many will open their eyes to the opportunity of this life. Why not you? Today, many bury the ghosts of yesterday and seize the difference of living today. Why not you? Today is always a new day! Many will awaken this day. Many will come to understand it, to live it to the fullest. Why not you?

Open or Closed. . .

“The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend” ~ Henri Bergson Keeping an open mind is one of the most difficult things to practice. It means you are open to everyone and everything that comes your way, allowing yourself to embrace different possibilities, opportunities, people, views, suggestions and interests. I don’t claim to master this skill, but I do see great improvement and it makes me feel powerful having the ability to change my way of thinking and not to get stuck in a mindset that makes me frustrated, angry or...

Impermanent. . .

Impermanent. . .

Buddhist philosophy reminds us that everything is impermanent. Everything — the good, the bad, and the ordinary. I’ve come to accept this truism over my years. Sometimes we use impermanence as a club. We think that if everything is impermanent, we shouldn’t invest in anything. I think it’s the opposite. Because things are impermanent, we invest. We step into them. We engage completely with our lives. We can find this hard to embrace throughout our life. This mainly stems from fear but guess what? Fear is our teacher Our fear is rich in...

Outward Together. . .

Outward Together. . .

Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction. We are a collection of moments, memories, and shared experiences. Let us travel together for though our tribes may have differences, we share one birth and one destination. Our journey should be shared.
