#Daisaku Ikeda 🌻

” …. it is the revolution that rewrites the scenario of our destiny ….” 

A practising Nichiren Buddhist of two years , I am deeply humbled to say I have the privilege of having Daisaku Ikeda , more lovingly known to us as “Sensei” , (a  Japanese term for “mentor” ) as my Life Mentor!

He is someone who always has a “Now” word for whatever you may be facing today : a troubled relationship , distressed marriage , challenges at work , inspiration to overcome adversity or an unexpected situation that caught you by storm ! Whatever the case may be , Sensei’s Guidances are Golden , transforming multitudes of lives across the Planet 🌎 

In my experience , it is Sensei’s heart that no matter the external circumstances, and there are some rather harsh ones to contend with the challenge of which ,  I  , by no means will ever try to minimise , but truth is that in the midst of such adversity , fire and storm ; we are well able to not only effectively deal , but in fact , come up higher in life , with a life force that sometimes makes no sense : that’s what makes it all so “mystical” !

My heart is that we all find within ourselves reservoirs of strength and hope that propel us and enable us to :

Blossom forth like vibrant flowers 🌺 Shine like the Sun 🌞 Gallop like the horse 🐎 Soar like the Eagle ✨

Live Life Unrestrained!

#Check

Today

Are you grappling for control ?

Control to an extent that you are enslaved by a fear even you cannot articulate ?

Or have you made up your heart to Surrender all Control to The Only One who can ultimately free you , heal you , restore the broken crevices of your soul ?

A Surrender that can be done only by Faith

Faith that walks on waters

Faith that moves mountains

Faith that trusts without borders

Faith that calms raging seas

Check .

I have had to .

Amen .

# A21

The legacy of A21 : Freedom

27 million human slaves on the Planet .

Dozens of traffickers put in jail .

Hundreds of girls rescued .

The largest anti human trafficking organisation in the world , A21 , was founded by Christine and Nick Caine  ; amidst all evidence from ” experts ” strongly dissuading them to start it , saying it would be “IMPOSSIBLE ” to found it in a place like Thessaloniki , Greece .

Someone knew better .

Chris responded with a resounding , ” what is impossible with man is possible with God ” and that they were ” well able ” to do it .

Faith .

Obedience .

To the still small voice on the inside of you that will often ask of you to do things when all evidence seems to the contrary .

That is the power of Hope .

Today A21 is actively engaged in rescuing and rehabilitating girls from all parts of the world , has defied human logic from the get go and set a trailblazing example of not only humanism , but faith that gives rise to it and sustains the courage to follow through .

27 million slaves .

Something I’ve come to learn from Chris ,

” Numbers can be dehumanising and desensitising ”

27 million slaves didn’t even strike a chord with my compassion fatigued , numb brain .

She went on .

Put a face and a name to each number .

The story changes .

And only one thought I’m left with tonight :

” God’s Daughters are NOT for sale ”

Amen .
