Every Cloud

Cloud ComputingWith the cycle trip to Bristol beginning tomorrow, I’m busy tidying up some of the loose ends here at work before my much anticipated long weekend. There’s a lot going on at present, in fact it’s been this way since all the changes earlier in the year, but a company wide migration to cloud based applications is keeping us all on our toes. I want to leave the decks nice and clear before I head off for home this evening.

During times of heightened stress, albeit self imposed, I find it both enlightening and calming to take a moment to read Daisaku Ikeda’s Buddhism Day by Day during my lunch break, and I thought I would share these two I found with you today …

“There simply are no Buddhas who spend all their time in meditation. Buddhas are Buddhas precisely because they continually ponder and take action to help others resolve their worries.”

“A coward cannot become a Buddha. We cannot attain Buddhahood unless we possess the heart of a lion. The harsher the situation, the bolder the stand we must take. This is the essence of the Soka Gakkai spirit.”

A couple of rousing calls to action if ever there were.

I will try to blog while I’m on the road, but please bear with me if the posts for the next few days are a little concise or tardy. I’m determined to travel light, so the last thing I need to carry with me is a laptop or tablet, but I’m sure I’ll be able to beg, borrow or steal, ok not steal, a machine and get onto the blog, through the wonders of cloud computing.

Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.
