My goals are numerous and never-ending, it seems.
The number one overall goal is this:
In 2009, I want to have the courage to be fully myself.
To integrate all parts of myself into one big shining diamond of a life- to reveal all parts of myself, to accept all parts of myself, to allow all parts of myself, to see all parts of myself, and to be exactly who I am, as I keep changing and growing.
To love myself unconditionally and to blow up the chains I've weighed myself down with for so long.
And lucky for me, I know exactly how to do this. Chant to the Gohonzon. Ahhh, thank you Ikeda-sensei! Without you I would not have the Gohonzon today! And I'd be depressed and hopeless and self-hating... Maybe worse.
Happy birthday, Daisaku Ikeda! You will live forever in my heart!
So so so so so so happy I encountered Nichiren Buddhism. Damn. Thank you, Nichiren Daishonin!!!
Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!
