In the World of Reality, it is important to make efforts and continue to do so. There is no such a thing as fate. The future is not fixed. Just one universal law exists in the universe: things change. Sakyamuni once said “All things are in flux and nothing is permanent.” That is, everything, good or bad, is sure to change.
You can gradually change the direction of your life by making constant efforts. No other belief is more absurd than that of giving up changing the future without making any efforts with the assumption that the future is fixed. It is the assumption that the present difficult situations will never change that makes you suffer.
How do things change? For example, you will come to be able to accept the present situations by changing your attitude. Situations of both you and the other person will be forced to change, and so on. It’s bad to focus only on the present and despair.
If you committed suicide because of your restricted vision, your state of suffering in agony would be fixed and your soul would be attracted to the fixed world. The suffering in the fixed world is beyond imagination. The mere thought of suffering or pain lasting forever is horrifying. I feel the truth that everything changes in this world is the grace of God.
Unfortunately, some people grow inflexible and obstinate. Their hearts are easily hurt by trifle things. They live life as if they were already in Hell. It’s important to be flexible and soft, physically and mentally. If you have flexible thinking and body, you don’t get hurt or injured by absorbing impact or stimulus. If you don’t, your body cells will be harder and harder and you’re likely to have cancer or some disease.
Let go of yourself and stop being particular about small things, and you can avoid having cancer or diseases. Try to be flexible in many respects.
However, it’s not easy to change mental attitude. Therein lies the importance of holding a memorial service to appease your ancestral spirits and reminding yourself of gratitude to God everyday. Being grateful all the time makes the magnetism of gratitude accumulate in space. It’s important to continue to do these.
Just as your blood is the best for your body when you get blood infusion, the magnetism of gratitude that you have accumulated in space will have good influences on you. It will surely change the course of your life for the better.
