“The Law is important, but it is spread by people. That makes the effort to foster capable people the supreme source of unseen virtue—leading to truly immeasurable visible reward.

“My mentor, second Soka Gakkai president Josei Toda, encouraged members, saying: ‘Advance steadily and surely. If you strive for kosen-rufu and foster your juniors with more dedication than anyone, you’ll also receive more benefit than anyone!’”

Be glad in combating S.A.D.

I’ve always struggled with the winter blues. I live in Oregon, and I love it here, but our constant rain and early darkness are a huge drag. The good news is that I’m not alone. Millions of people struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and while some cases are really severe (and require some medical attention), many of us can beat the blues by getting active, healthy, and creative.

Since winter affects all of us differently, I wanted to provide some ideas to kick your winter blues right in the chops! While I’m guessing you won’t try all 60 (it would be incredibly impressive if you did), try a few of these out and see if they get you out of your winter rut. Good luck, and happy winter!
