Daily Encouragement Daisaku Ikeda May 25th from For Today and Tomorrow

The heart is most important of all. In his classic, Antoine Saint-Exupéry writes: “It’s is only with the heart one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” It is just as he says. We cannot always tell something is genuine with our eyes. Only by looking with the heart can we discern the true essence.

We’re back….It’s TOOT UR HORN TUESDAY!

For many reasons of negative self-worth and low self-esteem, we rob ourselves and others of  the bliss and enjoyment of sharing our successes and other great news.

Out of this lack, TOOT UR HORN TUESDAY was created. So, please give us the honor and privilege of celebrating our many professional and personal successes with each other.

Prosperity from Liz Who Motivates & Louise Hay

And it is so!

This happens all the time when I am not too blind to see it.

The more I have a  state of conscious awareness, the more I am in tune with the Universe operating from a higher vibration.

A translation of President Ikeda’s “Words of the Week”
published in the Seikyo Shimbun and more.

24th – 30th Nov., 2014
— WORDS OF THE WEEK —
Those who confront obstacles head on fear nothing.
When facing a problem, it’s a perfect opportunity
to elevate our life condition.
Let’s not let that opportunity slip us by!
Just as the Daishonin encourages us,
“The wise will rejoice,”*
let’s live each and every day boldly and confidently.
Let’s play out victorious dramas for kosen-rufu
and our own lives.

*”Something uncommon also occurs when an ordinary person attains Buddhahood. At such a time, the three obstacles and four devils will invariably appear, and the wise will rejoice while the foolish will retreat.” –
“The Three Obstacles and Four Devils”, WND-I, page 637

“At first only Nichiren chanted Nam-myoho-renge-kyo, but then two, three, and a hundred followed, chanting and teaching others. Propagation will unfold this way in the future as well.”

“We are noble Bodhisattvas of the Earth who have appeared in this world for the sake of kosen-rufu. Living in a corrupt and troubled age, we have the greatest possible mission to propagate the Buddhist teaching of respect for the dignity of life and dedicate ourselves to the realisation of peace and happiness of all humankind.

“The Japanese word for mission means ‘to use one’s life.’ …Every day that you chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo and use your life to work for the welfare of others, the community, and society, you proceed along the most positive path of life in rhythm with the universe.

“No matter what adversities may beset you, you can definitely change poison into medicine and carry out your human revolution. And by transforming karma into mission, you will be able to encourage and help guide many others.”

— TO MY FRIENDS —
As “leaders,”
by sharing our own personal experiences
let’s share the joy and confidence
we ourselves have in practising Nichiren Buddhism!
When everyone is inspired and rises up to take action using this faith,
the momentum of our advancement is definitely going to accelerate.

“No great achievement can be accomplished in a single generation. It requires the presence of disciples who embrace the original mentor’s vision as their own and wholeheartedly strive to achieve it over successive generations. That is how great things are accomplished.

“Disciples can join in a great undertaking precisely because the mentor has opened the way. At the same time, the mentor’s vow is realised precisely because the disciples carry on the mentor’s work and vision. An eternal flow of mentor and disciple will create a new great tide of Soka.”
