Of #Roadside #Museums – and unforgettable #VayCays… ( #Screenblog using @Instagram )

28 Oct





Just that the thought was so powerful, the yearning, lifelong, and yes, the light was also perfect as I trekked to this now familiar spot… pledges to visit Davis-Monthan AFB someday emerged as the subject matter was ultimately as familiar as any… other thoughts, meshed with the fact that these are serious artifacts, now part of what I pray we need less and less of, as they may have achieved the push forward into more civilized ways.

Encouragement: “bring it on” as some would say… #TDE on #Determination (a.k.a. #Ichinen #Sanzen) #Buddhist Viewpoints / #WorldPeace

27 Oct

Been a while, so here’s today’s The Daily Encouragement for you (and me – they never get old, nor fail to serendipitiously hit the proverbial nail, squarely, on the head!)

"Whether we regard difficulties in life as misfortunes or whether we view them as good fortune depends entirely on how much we have forged our inner determination.

It all depends on our attitude or inner state of life.

With a dauntless spirit, we can lead a cheerful and thoroughly enjoyable life.

We can develop a "self" of such fortitude that we can look forward to life’s trials and tribulations with a sense of profound elation and joy: "Come on obstacles! I’ve been expecting you! This is the chance that I’ve been waiting for!""

Nichiren’s #Gosho – on Lessening Karmic Retribution and facing ‘Obstacles’… (#WorldViews on #WorldPeace, attained through individual reformation)

7 Oct


Sadly (or fortunately?) seeking a “Path of Least Resistance” does not ‘jive’ with what we do – we are supposed to rejoice at encountering hurdles.

Why? ‘cuz then we are supposed to grow in the process of overcoming them.

(That’s how the ‘overdrafts’ are also taken care of, so to speak, when seeing ‘karma’ as a sort of an ‘account’, if you will)

Anywho – snapping this snippet of the ‘major writings’ (Jpn – Gosho) as it is pretty timely, indeed.

(Lessen – Vergessen – Mittagsessen… Yup, I can ramble and alliterate in a few!)… a sort of curse, BTW, when the predominant style is ‘plain spoken’

Good morning Cloud.

So yeah, last year’s was historic – and this summer was nothing but, so let’s start reminiscing on what the next 180 days shall bring, shall we?

"Please make every effort to find and raise capable people. My wish is that you construct a wonderful organization, joyfully building growing spheres of friendship and a solidarity of people who cherish hope for life and the future. Please lead the most wonderful of lives."
