    Bonz, it was on time. Thanks!

    "Some people, while they may at one point have exerted themselves in faith wholeheartedly, end up defeated by persecution or succumbing to selfishness and arrogance and giving up completely. Nichiren Daishonin writes: 'To accept is easy; to continue is difficult. But Buddhahood lies in continuing faith' (WND-1, 471). Perseverance is crucial in faith. It's the source of real strength and the key to achieving our great objective."

          Good im glad it was on time, as you can see i was rushing, stumbling over what to say.

          So i misspell a few words here and there, write incomplete sentances. As we all have come to know its the heart that counts. Nam myoho renge kyo!!!!!!


          Im so excited T, I cant stand it! I have hardly slept but i will relax, i cant wait till New Years Eve! I have been chanting on and off all nite allmost, alot of things have come to light. Is it ok to chant for 15/20 minutes and then do it again a half hour later or 10 minutes later for that matter?

          I just keep feeling the need to when i thought i was done. HEY!!! LIGHT BULB!! WERE NEVER DONE! We will be chanting and creating such goodnees and achieving higher and higher life conditions, which (my favorite part) CANNAOT FAIL TO AUTOMATICALLY REACH OUT TO OTHERS WHO SEE WITH THEIR OWN TWO EYES OUR LIFE AND OUR HUMAN NATURE GETTING BETTER AND BETTER. Does that make sense or do i need to go to sleep?

          This holiday cappucino is good!!!! he he, fun, fun, fun!!!

          peace and love

              "...it could never
              come about that [the] prayers [of the
              practitioner of the Lotus Sutra] would
              go unanswered."(*)

              Buddhism is a win or lose battle,
              and daimoku is the source of victory.
              Let's win with daimoku!

                  Your own offerings were not made to me, Nichiren, but to the Lotus Sutra. Therefore, we must leave it to Shakyamuni Buddha, Many Treasures Buddha, and the Buddhas of the ten directions [to fathom the greatness of] the resulting benefits.

                    Shoten Zenjin Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

                    Sitting here at my computer moments ago. A large tree crashed down onto of the shed directly next to my house. Missing the place im sitting by less then ten feet. If it would have fell any more this direction it would have hit the house right where im sitting. It drove the shed to the ground. I would have been hurt. It is sooo windy. There is still another part of the tree standing. Not sure i can even go cut any of it down today as the wind is way to much. I feel so fortunate. Although I am still shaking I went straight to Gohonzon to do Daimoku of thanks. I was a timber faller for many years and have seen alot of trees fall. Shoten Zenjin the protective forces have looked out for me today I assure you. Still shakin in my boots!!

                      Dude I immediately chanted Daimoku of appreciation for your protection.

                      Sincere thanks for my Birthday Wishes! Heart-felt thanks to all.

                      It's pretty active around here right now. Lots of good things happening. I will get back to everyone, but I wanted to especially thank FJ for officially stopping in. I also got some PM's and emails from dear friends and I am elated to know everyone is OK.

                      I will reply to you all. Thank you!

                      Belated Happy birthday to SoCal! It is one I should never miss since he influenced the Universe to have my boys born on his day! Keep posting Brother!

                      Easy, Gordy, and SG all send their best!

                      Deepest appreciation and respect,

                          In the next life you should use this sword as your staff. The Lotus Sutra is the staff that helps all the Buddhas of the three existences as they set their minds on enlightenment. However, you should rely upon Nichiren as your staff and pillar. When one uses a staff, he will not fall on treacherous mountain paths or rough roads, and when led by the hand, he will never stumble.

                              No matter what the circumstances, you should never concede defeat. Never conclude that you've reached a dead end, that everything is finished. You possess a glorious future. And precisely because of that, you must persevere and study. Life is eternal. We need to focus on the two existences of the present and the future and not get caught up in the past. We must always have the spirit to begin anew "from this moment," to initiate a new struggle each day.

                                Ok I got up and turned it up today and put the peddle to the metal. Got the tree all cut up and burned. There is still the other part standing there but it will be safe for now. I spent alot of time looking at this thing and how it fell. Im amazed at how it all happened. Ive crawled back up inside to see how all my carpentry tools are. My generator , my compressors , table saws , power washer, all kinds of stuph all seems to be unhurt. Everywher something of real value was sitting something stopped the roof before squashing it. We had a couple power outages and I had been standing out there working on the generator not 30 minutes before the tree fell. I am so amazed that this thing could posibly land on all our stuff like this and not really hurt anything. Shoten Zenjin. I feel so fortunate. It has moved me to more daimoku then normal so it must be all good. woooooooohoooooooooo
