Value Creation

Buddhism teaches us to regard everything in a positive light, as an opportunity for growth, as a raw material for developing absolute happiness. Chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo is wellspring of this optimism and growth- this is called "Value Creation". This wellspring enables practitioners to turn everything in their lives, joys and sufferings alike into causes for absolute happiness. As a result, individuals develop confidence in their power to transform even intense suffering into raw material of happiness. With this power, everything is a benefit, an opportunity.

i feel there are basically two kinds of people in the world, those that focus on the negative and those that focus on the positive, i.e. "glass is half full" or "glass is half empty" types of people. I've known my share of both and i can honestly say being around the negative types is all i need to motivate me to keep finding the positive in any situation! that doesnt mean its easy and life can sure test our ability and our will to maintain that attitude, but in the end the struggle is worth the effort. your blog is very inspiring, even for a non-buddhist like myself, ty! ;)
