“If you want to make the world a better place, Take a look at yourself, and then make a change” Michael Jackson, Man in the Mirror
As you may know if you’ve been following my blog posts, 2018 was a tough year for me. I started the year with high hopes of setting up my new business “The Happiness Club” and fulfilling my life purpose. All these ambitions were put on hold as I stopped taking my anti-depressants and had a number of relapses of depression. I was also stressed out about money as my income only covered less than two thirds of my expenses.
I’m reluctant to call myself a Buddhist, even though I practice Nicherin Buddhism on a daily basis. Having being part of a few different religions and practiced various forms of spirituality, I am reluctant to put a label on it. I have to admit though that out of everything I’ve done, practicing Buddhism with Soka Gakkai International (SGI) has had the most profound effect on my life.
I practice Nichiren Buddhism with the SGI, as you probably know from my previous blog posts. If you’d like to learn more about the SGI and Nichiren Buddhism and how it can make an impact on your life, please join us for our introductory event on 14 January 2018 in Ipswich.
In November 2016 when Donald Trump was elected President I was among many to be shocked. Although my immediate reaction was one of disbelief, this was immediately followed by an urgent need to send Donald Trump love and light and pray that he connect to his higher self / Buddhahood. In light of recent events, i.e. the situation in North Korea, I feel this is even more imperative and that we can also send love and light to Kim Jong-un and pray for him to reveal his higher self / Buddhahood. (BTW, has anyone else noticed that his name rhymes with wrong-un? Haha) Continue reading “Sending love and light to Presidents Trump and Kim Jong-un”
