I’ve been struggling lately and haven’t really felt like writing.
To be honest, I feel like I haven’t been “real” enough on this blog. Writing informative posts is great – but if I don’t put my heart into them, does it truly matter?
Expect my posts from now on to be more personal – to be more real. Of course I will still write about Nichiren Buddhism and spirituality, but to really make a connection with others, I must be willing to put my heart on the line. That means sharing the scary parts of myself as well as the exciting ones.
I started this blog in hopes that I could help others through my writing, but simply preaching to others isn’t my intention, and I feel like that’s what my blog has been doing so far – preaching empty words without my heart behind them.
I truly believe in Nichiren Buddhism and its potential to change lives as it’s changed mine. But I don’t simply want to give you information that you can find elsewhere with a quick google search (though I’ll still write informative posts from now and again!).
You haven’t come here simply to be taught about Buddhism. You’ve come here because you want to know what it’s like to walk in truth every day and to appreciate the depths of another person’s soul. I will try my best to give you that.
Thank you for sharing this journey with me and I hope that I can be more active and share more messages of light with you.
