Dealing with Persecution

UN : What do I do about this heaviness in my thorax area and above?

The Buddhas : Describe it.

UN : Something wants to go up and is not able to. It’s stuck.

The Buddhas : Is it the element of air?

UN : Yes.

The Buddhas : You are suffering from a disturbance in the element of air in the chest, throat and neck area, it seems.

UN : Is it connected to my chanting?

The Buddhas : Well, you are a ruthless chanter…

UN : I can’t stop the flow. If it’s there, it will flow. 

The Buddhas : We wish to address the stuck part. Therein lies the key. Understand the stuck part and you will be cured of this. Then chant as ruthlessly as you wish. 🙂

UN : Wow! Tell me all. 

The Buddhas : Flow is blocked partly in your throat chakra. That is a result of suppression or prosecution.

UN : Prosecution? There’s nothing like the Daishonin’s prosecution in my life. 

The Buddhas : Sure, not on that scale. On a miniscule scale – think hard?!

UN : Well my spiritual side doesn’t count at home. It’s worthless. In fact, till the longest time, it was a negative, and was punished. I had to hide it with shame. 

The Buddhas : See, that’s persecution. Sure, not on the Daishonin’s level, but on a miniscule level.

UN : Hmmm, I do see now. Is it the cause for this blockage?

The Buddhas : Absolutely. You weren’t dealing with your situation till now. Blockage developed. You are dealing with things now by chanting regularly in spite of your immediate surrounding. Hence, blockage will go over time. 

UN : Things are better in my immediate surrounding now. There’s more acceptance. 

The Buddhas : That’s a sign that things are improving already. How long were you persecuted?

UN : Don’t use that word again and again. It’s on a miniscule level, not relevant for the outside world. 

The Buddhas : Well, it has caused you a health issue, so you decide whether it’s serious or not. Also, how would your world like an unfit You, unable to function?

UN : I see your point. I’m dealing with it now, right? 

The Buddhas : Just keep chanting wth full faith. Your immediate environment will first fully accept, and them will move with you. There needs to be no iota of doubt about this in your mind. Before you know it, this disturbance of air in your upper area will be gone, because the persecution has gone. 

UN : Again you’re using that word. Stop. 

The Buddhas : You’re an obstinate fellow, aren’t you. That’s actually good, because that’s why you’ve persisted. You’re almost through though, just keep going. 

UN : Thanks and bye! 🙂

The Buddhas : Bye! 🙂

Willing the Future

Thoughts have energy, right?

Of course. 

So if I think something hard enough, will it happen?

Depends.

Upon what?

Upon your thoughts being hard enough. 

Supposing they are? 

Then we’re looking at 2 options. 

These being?

Firstly, is Karma present?

Oh. 

Yeah, for something to occur, Karma needs to be present. Karma creates a field for the event to occur. 

I see. 

If Karma is present, and the event is still not occurring, then there is blockage. 

What to do about blockage?

This is where the energy of your thoughts comes into play. It removes blockage, bit by bit, till blockage is gone. 

And then the event occurs?

Correct. 

What if there’s lots and lots of blockage?

Then you need lots and lots of thought-energy, will-power and time. 

And ultimately?

Ultimately, when the resultant vector of thought-energy, will-power and time surpasses the blockage in magnitude, the blockage is gone and the event occurs. 

Wonderful. What if Karma is absent?

Aha!

Meaning. 

That’s a tough cookie. 

How tough?

First, thought-energy will create Karma. 

Oh.

That takes time and circumstance. Long drawn out process. Thought-energy speeds it up though. 

And then?

Then, if blockage has occurred while creating the Karma, thought-energy will dispense with blockage. 

Just like the above process?

Very much so. 

Making it a longer process time-wise?

Much longer. Do you think it’s easy to create exactly the kind of karmic events required to trigger an event for which Karma was formerly absent?

No. 

There you go. It’s a real struggle. 

Can you give examples?

Of events coming to pass where Karma was absent and was created due to thought-energy, persistence and will-power?

Yes. 

A child being born who was not destined earlier, but then was. 

Wow!

A relationship – not destined earlier, but destined now.

In the same life?

Yes. 

So one makes one’s own Karma?

Yes. With different degrees of difficulty, depending on the kind of Karma one is pursuing. Destined Karma will be catalysed and then the event will come to pass. Non-destined Karma will first be created, and then, after removal of freshly accumulated blockage, even such Karma will come to pass. 

I see. Thank you, that was very enlightening. 

Welcome.
