Aspiration for the New Year

January 23, 2017

 

I will try to be grateful for this moment, aspiring to see the world as-it-is, not as-I-want-it-to-be, so that I may alleviate suffering for all beings.

 

I will try to be wise so that I can see both sides of conflict wth clarity, and not insist that I alone am right.

 

I will try to be compassionate so that I can help all people without discrimination or judgement.

 

I will try to be kind and gentle to every living thing and protect all those who are weaker than myself.

 

I will try to allow the Aloha in my heart to manifest as Mahalo for the great ‘Ohana of Life and the blessings of the ‘Aina.

 

In the Hongwanji tradition, I express my profound gratitude for this unrepeatable life by placing my palms together, bowing my head, and saying Namo Amida Butsu, entrusting in All-Inclusive Wisdom and All-Embracing Compassion.
