        Present effects are due to karmic causes from the past. However, future effects arise from the causes we make in the present. It is always the present that counts. It is what we do in the present moment that decides our future; our past causes do not govern our future as well. Nichiren Buddhism emphasizes that no matter what kind of karmic causes we have made in the past, through the causes we make in the present we can achieve a brilliant future.

          From the time that I was born until today, I have never known a
          moment's ease; I have thought only of propagating the daimoku of the
          Lotus Sutra. I do not know how long I or anyone else may live, but
          without fail, I will be with you at the time of your death and guide
          you from this life to the next.

            "To possess both wisdom and compassion is the heart of our human
            revolution. If you have wisdom alone and lack compassion, it will be a
            cold, perverse wisdom. If you have compassion alone and lack wisdom,
            you cannot give happiness to others. You are even likely to lead them
            in the wrong direction, and you won't be able to achieve your own
            happiness."

            "Of course, people want to live long. But in the end, what matters
            more is what we have been able to leave behind -- the value we have
            created in our lives, the number of people we have made happy and how
            much we have been able to grow and expand as a person."

            "It is human nature to desire recognition and to want to look better
            than what we are. When that desire seizes control of us, it is easy
            to lose sight of who we are and what our real purpose is. Spiritual
            corruption begins from there. The best thing is to be true to one's
            heart."

                          Good Morning fellow Bodhisatvas,

                          Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

                          Wow, I needed that last encouragement I just posted. Appeared from the Universe for me to really chant about this morning and I have a feeling many are going thru similar shit.

                          ....."Darker the night, nearer the dawn; Colder the winter, nearer the Spring..."

                          This year has been really mindblowing for me to say the least. After what I went thru last yr where coming close to losing everything. then getting a new job in November, then promotion to replace the now District Mgr of my company in February, it has been quite a ride. I mean the promotion to run the largest branch here in our metro was a real great benefit of turning 'poison into medicine' but the new challenges that that has brought has made me feel recently like I hit a wall. On top of all the new responsibility that this has additionally it has created jealousy amongst many of my peers in the company; you know, 'the new guy getting the best position' kinda thing and I have had to deal with tht and just a whole bunch more of shit. My biggest benefit of going thru this is that I have the total support of the new District Mgr who has had my back and been my total shoten zenjin (Buddhist god, Universal protection)

                          But it's all good. I will just have to do more chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and study and shakubuku. 'This is my mission, mine alone; you to have a mission, only you can fulfill." (quote by Toda or Ikeda, i forgot) No '2 tickets to paradise' only hard human revolution. I will not back down nor give up nor be in despair.

                          Off to do my morning prayers and I will definetly be chanting for all of you here. This thread is the 'bomb!' and my deepest appreciation to everyone.

                          Nam Myoho Renge Kyo

                              "To possess both wisdom and compassion is the heart of our human revolution. If you have wisdom alone and lack compassion, it will be a cold, perverse wisdom. If you have compassion alone and lack wisdom, you cannot give happiness to others. You are even likely to lead them in the wrong direction. Also you cannot achieve your own happiness.

                              Never for an instant forget the effort to renew your life, to build yourself anew. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway of life itself. This is not an easy task. Indeed, it may be the most severely challenging struggle there is. For opening the door to your own life is in the end more difficult than opening the door to all the mysteries of the universe."

                              "Anyone who has ever made a resolution discovers that the strength of that determination fades in time. The moment you feel that is when you should make a fresh determination. Tell yourselves, "OK! I will start again from now!" If you fall down seven times, get up the eighth. Don't give up when you feel discouraged-just pick yourselves up and renew your determination each time."

                              “When your determination changes, everything will begin to move in the direction you desire. The moment you resolve to be victorious, every nerve and fiber in your being will immediately orient itself toward your success. On the other hand, if you think, “This is never going to work out,” then at that instant every cell in your being will be deflated and give up the fight. Then everything really will move in the direction of failure.”

                                Amber draws dust, and a magnet attracts iron particles; here our evil
                                karma is like the dust or iron, and the daimoku of the Lotus Sutra is
                                like the amber or the magnet. If we consider these [analogies, we can
                                see why] we should always chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
