Keep On, Keepin’ On

Keep On, Keepin' OnBuddhist Practice is rather like a dog, for life, and not just for Christmas, and must be part of your very being.

Now I’m not suggesting that I have been back sliding, because I haven’t, but I know there is still more I can do towards achieving my goal. The difficulty is getting the balance right, treading a fine line between strenuous regular practice and learning, and forming an obsession with the new way of life. Given the fact that the whole point of adopting Buddhism as a way of life is to gain a happier existence for me and those around me, I need to get this right.

Those of you who know me, know that I have an addictive nature and throw myself into new ventures wholeheartedly. The problem, in the past, has been keeping that going. I have been, I admit openly, in the World of Hunger, for most of my life, always looking for the next new thing. I am certain that I am managing that and have already made some headway, but self criticism is healthy in this respect.

One reason for keeping this blog, and we’re past the 1000 post mark now,  is to prove to myself that I have changed, and that I have the drive and desire to keep my practice strong. You have my permission to tell me, if you see any cracks appearing.

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
