Diamonds, Diamonds, and more Diamonds...

I come across these passages that are completely "pure diamond" in quality, I would be totally remiss not sharing them. "Generosity is unlimited."

"From one perspective, Buddhist practice means plunging into the midst of the people and striving to strengthen our life force to the greatest extent. The purpose of the SGI activities is for each of us to be able to build a strong, invincible, diamond like self that can overcome every difficulty and blaze a way forward wherever we go. Obstacles are a golden opportunity to quickly forge an inner self that is as indestructible as a diamond, able to endure for eternity." - Daisaku Ikeda

When you think about the areas of your life that could be upgraded or tweaked remember what it takes to produce a "diamond". The weight of enormous pressure, collected from the bowels of the earth and lovingly polished, cut and shaped with impeccable precision, the hardest substance known, along with extraordinary brilliance, always in demand. AND able to endure for eternity. Consider anything we take on to polish ourselves is an "eternal" present to enjoy the journey !

YOU are that diamond.

NMRK with Love,
