Morning-Evening Binds the Day

The Buddhas : So now you see.

UN : Yes, I do.

The Buddhas : And what do you see?

UN: The effects of morning-evening Gongyo+Daimoku.

The Buddhas : And pray what are the effects?

UN: I didn’t see it earlier. Morning-evening binds the day.

The Buddhas : Hmmmm.

UN : The day is like a unit. There’s purpose, and a push. And extra energy. Motivation. Optimism. Goal-orientedness. It’s like “Let’s go!”

The Buddhas : What was it like earlier?

UN : My practice was casual. There was no Gongyo. A little bit of Nam Mayo Ho Renge Kyo here, a little bit there.

The Buddhas : Did such effects come forth then?

UN : No.

The Buddhas : So what’s your conclusion here? You already mentioned the morning-evening binding effect. Anything else as significant?

UN : Gongyo amplifies Daimoku manifold.

The Buddhas : Aha.

UN : Tongue opens up. Daimoku becomes smooth. Clear. One can do fast, loud and clear Daimoku, if one then wishes. Gongyo sets a rhythm in one’s system, and Daimoku becomes a breeze.

The Buddhas : Good. Continue like that.

Shatter and Pop

UN : I’m afraid.

1st Buddha : There we go again.

3rd Buddha : Explain.

UN : My chanting comes out with such force, that I’m afraid that I might pop an artery.

2nd Buddha : Ha! Priceless!

3rd Buddha : I’ll take this one, you two stay quiet. So, are you loud, intense, or both?

UN : Both. Such that the walls shake. And fast. Rapid.

3rd Buddha : You do it on purpose?

UN : I can’t help myself. It comes out that way.

1st Buddha : He can’t help himself, he says! Hahahahaha!

3rd Buddha : Quiet! Your soul’s been in a corner, is it?

UN : Yes.

3rd Buddha : And you’re a naturally very intense person?

UN : Yes.

3rd Buddha : Well, you’re just coming out now, that’s the way it is.

2nd Buddha : What about his artery that might pop? Hahahahaha!

3rd Buddha : Done with your jokes? We are putting a mechanism in place.

UN : What mechanism?

3rd Buddha : You won’t pop anything.

UN : How does this mechanism work?

3rd Buddha : As far as you’re concerned, the appropriate mechanism is in place. You won’t pop anything. You don’t need to know more.

UN : So I continue?

3rd Buddha : Just let it all come out.

1st Buddha : Yeah, make sure my eardrums pop.

2nd Buddha : The walls are going nowhere. It’s your walls that are shattering.

3rd Buddha : Bye.

2nd Buddha : Bye.

1st Buddha : Bye.

UN : Bye.

“Daimoku Puts Your Engagement on Auto”

UN : What’s the issue with going inwards?

The Buddhas : No issue.

UN : Oh, I thought there was an issue.

The Buddhas : You can go in, sure.

UN : However?

The Buddhas : It’s a time to engage and not disengage.

UN : As in need of the hour?

The Buddhas : The nature of the times on the planet will need many, many spiritual people to engage.

UN : Otherwise?

The Buddhas : There won’t be a planet anymore.

UN : I see. 

The Buddhas : It’s an endgame scenario on Earth. All or nothing. 

UN : Yeah, the way we’re going, as if there’s no tomorrow.

The Buddhas : Thus you’ve got to give it your all. Sitting back and going inwards would be giving up.

UN : It would be like resigning to the situation and saying “Whatever”, right? I do see that now. 

The Buddhas : There was a time when going inwards was the normally practiced form of spiritualism. It was time-appropriate.

UN : I see that now too. With peace and harmony already existing around oneself, one wanted to give oneself that extra kicker and reach inside. 

The Buddhas : However, this is a different time, requiring emergency measures of engagement. 

UN : What’s the easiest way to engage?

The Buddhas : Chant. You start engaging the moment you chant. That’s what Daimoku does for you. 

UN : Yeah, it brings you right into the battlefield, immediately, with all systems firing, doesn’t it?

The Buddhas : Daimoku puts your engagement on auto. 

UN : Going for it. 

Feeling Like a Fool

UN : I mostly circulate in circles where my line of work has little or no value.

The Buddhas : Why do you think that is so?

UN : To motivate my circle?

The Buddhas : Describe your circle.

UN : Well-off, successful, recognised, powerful, connected, people with lots of good Karma accumulated in the past, using it up at a ridiculously fast speed. 

The Buddhas : So your presence would be to remind them…

UN : …to stop depleting their savings so fast, and to start accumulating new good Karma?

The Buddhas : Yes. And your test would be to…

UN : …not feel looked down upon, lowly, unsuccessful, unrecognised, worthless etc. because of these people?

The Buddhas : Yes, because you have enough…

UN : …confidence and belief in what I’m doing?

The Buddhas : Correct. Just because you are almost always functioning out of your comfort-zone, doesn’t mean that you are what a few people in your circle might think you are. 

UN : How come I’m not allowed entry into my comfort zone?

The Buddhas : All in good time. However, we want to get rid of an illusion.

UN : Which would be what?

The Buddhas : You’re doing more good outside of your comfort-zone that you will be once you enter it. 

UN : What’s the illusion?

The Buddhas : The feeling in your mind that you’ll peak upon entry into your comfort-zone.

UN : So I’ll peak outside?

The Buddhas : You are well on your way, and your growth will peak while still outside. 

UN : And once inside?

The Buddhas : One tends to get comfortable once inside one’s comfort-zone.
 

Evolution Diaries

The Buddhas : Why do you doubt?
 
UN : Sometimes, the path gets monotonous.
 
The Buddhas : Keep doing what you are doing. You are on the right track.
 
UN : Most of the times I do just that. Only sometimes there are pangs…
 
The Buddhas : For success, recognition and fame?
 
UN : I don’t want to use the word fame, and I am successful at what I do. I don’t want the recognition, but maybe once a month, I do want some recognition. However, the feeling passes, and I move on.
 
The Buddhas : You’ve already signed up for recognition here.
 
UN : Signed up? Here? Don’t understand.
 
The Buddhas : Your activities till date have given you recognition in our dimension.
 
UN : Which doesn’t necessarily mean recognition in my dimension, right?
 
The Buddhas : In your dimension, it means struggle. Recognition might or might not come, depending upon your tendency towards getting corrupted.
 
UN : And what makes you think I’ve signed up for this?
 
The Buddhas : Do other corresponding activities and we’ll sign you out of here.
 
UN : So you’re saying, that the nature of what I do makes you take notice of me?
 
The Buddhas : UhhhYeah!
 
UN : And you’re saying I can opt for worldly recognition anytime by choosing to do other such activities which beget worldly recognition, right?
 
The Buddhas : Yeah, who’s stopping you…except you yourself? You want to do spiritual and charitable deeds.
 
UN : Ok forget about the recognition part, I just need conducive company, sometimes.
 
The Buddhas : Then you won’t struggle.
 
UN : You’re happy that I struggle, is it?
 
The Buddhas : No, we’re happy that your speed of evolution is fast.
 
UN : Can one evolve without struggling?
 
The Buddhas : For one’s system to change enough for evolution, DNA needs to change.
 
UN : And DNA’s not going to change without the required pressure, correct?
 
The Buddhas : Correct.
 
UN : What about the ones revelling in their fame, glory and recognition currently?
 
The Buddhas : Why are you so bothered about them? That’s their test.
 
UN : The test being to see whether they’ll get corrupted?
 
The Buddhas : For example. One basically wants to see whether they’ll do any good, being in a position of power.
 
UN : And since I’m already doing good, what do I want a position of power for, right?
 
The Buddhas : Hahahahaha, kind of…, you said it, we didn’t!
 
UN: Right, bye.





Status Check

UN : This isn’t complacency, no no.

The Buddhas : Well, then what is it?

UN : You tell me. You should know.

The Buddhas : Hmmm, let’s gather the facts.

UN : Let’s.

The Buddhas : You start out early.

UN : Yeps.

The Buddhas : Read spiritual literature over 25+ years.

UN : Yeah.

The Buddhas : Do various spiritual practices, again over 25+ years.

UN : Yawn.

The Buddhas : And now you’ve landed with Buddhism.

UN : Lucky me.

The Buddhas : You’ve got power. You can pull. Also, you are able to connect directly.

UN : Do I still have to do all the reading?

The Buddhas : Study has the stamp of authenticity.

UN : You’re saying that during direct connection, there might be an element of doubt…

The Buddhas : …yes, sometimes, you mightn’t realise when your mind is playing tricks on you.

UN : I’ll give you that. Study is fine, but I’d like to go at my own speed.

The Buddhas : You’re letting it come to you, aren’t you, in a pre-digested fashion?

UN : Bottomline is, that I’m assimilating. In a different manner, but learning nevertheless.

The Buddhas : Also, you’ve always been unorthodox, so we’re not surprised.

UN : Let’s plane out the complacency angle, can we?

The Buddhas : Lingering and not doing Gongyo and Daimoku, what is that?

UN : Fear of overdoing.

The Buddhas : You fear that even this might go away, like your other spiritual practices?

UN : Yes. I want this to stay. So, not overplaying the card. Going with the flow.

The Buddhas : Hmmm, you can go all out but aren’t, we see.

UN : As of now I’m just happy taking whatever time windows open up.

The Buddhas : And you’re not pushing to create extra windows.

UN : Exactly. I know my game, and I know my game’s pitfalls.

The Buddhas : So you’re steering clear of the pitfalls.

UN : Yes.

The Buddhas : Ok.

I Enjoy Being a Nobody

The Buddhas : Are you sure about this one?

UN : Why? You think otherwise?

The Buddhas : You have that streak in you. The one wanting fame, sometimes, indirectly, maybe.

UN : Hmmm. Yes, sometimes there are pangs.

The Buddhas : But mostly, better sense prevails.

UN : I’m glad you see that.

The Buddhas : Let’s harp a bit on this hidden craving for fame.

UN : I’m not craving for fame. I enjoy being a nobody.

The Buddhas : Ok, lets put this another way.

UN : Go ahead.

The Buddhas : You are noticed. Your work is noticed. Eventually, you get acclaim in what you do.

UN : Is that a bad thing?

The Buddhas : We’re not finished. This leads you to subconsciously crave for more. It’s a natural tendency.

UN : I watch out for this tendency.

The Buddhas : Yes, but sometimes it’s there and you don’t know it.

UN : Continue.

The Buddhas : You only get to know after then committing an action that is driven by a latent craving for recognition.

UN : Hmmm. True. You’ll need to concede, though, that once I realize such an action has been committed, I immediately correct myself.

The Buddhas : Ya, you correct your action then and suppress the pang for recognition.

UN : You don’t like the suppression bit, is it?

The Buddhas : It’ll just explode that way.

UN : I see. You’re trying to say that upon explosive emergence, then, things will be uncontrollable.

The Buddhas : Better is to let it come out, recognize it, and then, let it move on.

UN : Without acting on it, you’re saying, right?

The Buddhas : Yeah. Just don’t act on it. Have that much self-control.

UN : So what it’s boiling down to is this : I need to recognize fame-related thought processes as they emerge…

The Buddhas : …and then let them pass, without acting on them or reacting to them.

UN : That’s it, is it?

The Buddhas : Sounds simple, doesn’t it?

UN : I’m sure you’re going to say otherwise.

The Buddhas : Well, let’s see you do it first.
