Yes, that’s right; you are a Buddha. Maybe you’re used to hearing, “you the man.” Well, this is like that, only it’s better. We all have a Buddha nature. In some of us it is more encrusted with mean and nasty stuff. Some of us just have trouble expressing it. One day, some time ago now, my lovely wife Juanita remarked, “I can’t find the words in my mind.” I put a note in an Outlook folder, thinking I might use this some day–so here it is. I can’t always find the words in my mind either, which is why I didn’t post anything yesterday. I couldn’t let another day go by without saying something, even if it doesn’t seem as though many people are reading what I am posting. Anyway, the point about being the Buddha in reality and not just in potential lies in exerting yourself to practice and study Buddhism both for yourself and for others. What, you are not a Buddhist? Then why are you still reading this? If you want to be genuinely happy, in control of your own destiny, then you need to at least consider what it means to practice Buddhism. Chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is the basic practice. The purpose is to fuse your life with the mystic law, elevating your life condition and enabling your Buddha nature to emerge.
