CHANGING OUR KARMA

CHANGING OUR KARMA

Dr. Kawada, SGI Vice President.

Karma is in the subconscious, specifically in the unconscious part of the subconscious.
The subconscious is all of our dormant potential. Happiness and unhappiness arise from there. All our images of life are  collected there. It is a broad and expansive place. All our past is  packed in there, everything. All the images from our previous lives  are stored there; all our experiences, feelings, and sounds,  everything. They are in our life and in our brain cells.

Everything from the moment you were born; from when you were in the  womb even, all the sounds such as your mother singing, and experiences  around you are images stored in the unconscious part of your  subconscious. This also includes the images stored by your ancestors  thousands of years ago, these images and experiences are carried into  yourself.

It is your inheritance. It continues on into your offspring,  etc. These images become your life and they are what you are now  experiencing. For example, if you tend to get into car accidents you  can naturally assume that your ancestors were prone to accidents as  well. Likewise, if you experience longevity, many of your ancestors also experienced longevity or illness runs in your family, this will  probably occur in your life.

This is family karma and it is stored in  your subconscious. Because of the connectedness of you and your  family, you share this karma with them. When you chant to the Gohonzon  you are changing not just your karma, but your whole family’s karma at  the same time. When one person changes, their whole family can change.  Because you carry these images, you carry the same problems; illness,  the way you die, poor finances, bad relationships, etc.

Unless you  change these images, they persist in your life and in that of your  offspring. These images come out even if you aren’t conscious of them.  You are not deciding, but the unconscious image is in control; who you  meet, what you do, when you die, if you get sick, etc. These are all  results of the images you carry. All these unconscious images have led  you to where you are right now. The scientific community is just starting to recognize this.

Your unconscious images are your karma. The right side of the brain has a huge impact on how we alter these images. Appreciation has a huge impact on how we alter that image. Using the words “Thank you” has an enormous impact on changing karma.  The right side of the brain is happy to hear the words “Thank You” and  responds accordingly.

The words Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo in Indian Sanskrit  are Namu Sada Ruma Fundareka Sotalon (this is the phonetic spelling)  and are translated as “Thank You So Much!”. So then what is the correct way to pray? It is not “Please let this  happen to me”. It is not begging and not asking for anything. But  because we are saying “thank you so much” whenever we recite  Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo, we should always be chanting with appreciation.

Our minds/emotions need to match out words. The most basic human  feeling or emotion is gratitude. It is the first emotion we learn as  an infant. Beyond the subconscious and unconscious is a very joyful  life condition or world.  When we use the right side of our brain it is much easier to chant. We  find that we can chant longer using the imagination side of our brain.  Never say “please” when chanting. So many other religious practices  teach asking for help, etc., not Nichiren Buddhism.

You have to appreciate everything in your life, including everything  from your past. You need to make a conscious effort to recall as much  as you can from your past and appreciate it. Even the things that you  don’t think you can appreciate you have to find gratitude for them.  Then you have to appreciate your current circumstances as well, even  if you are in the midst of a huge obstacle, such as cancer, financial  ruin, a divorce, whatever the situation; you still have to appreciate  it.

You have to thank the Gohonzon (your life) for giving you this  problem, because this is your chance to change negative karma to  fortune. What is the correct way to chant when you have a problem? You  have to chant with the spirit of “Thank you so much for giving me this problem. Because of this I can change my negative karma and that of my  family’s. Pray sincerely from the bottom of your heart to appreciate  your present circumstances. Because of this you can disconnect or  alter your family’s karma; you break it and begin to project a new  image. You should also set a specific date that you will no longer  have this problem.

Dr. Kawada treated fourteen people with stage four cancer. Some were not even SGI members. Their doctors had given up on all of them. One  even had to be brought in on a stretcher. All fourteen people joined  the SGI. They all learned to chant following this guidance of using  the right side of their brain to project an image of no cancer in  their bodies. In the U.S., last-stage cancer patients are encouraged  to draw a white cell eating a cancer cell.

Though this has been shown  to help, practicing Buddhism has an even bigger impact. In two months  the person on the stretcher overcame theircancer. Then his doctor  joined. Eventually all fourteen overcame their cancer.  You can change any illness, even allergies and skin rashes, etc. If  you are in an abusive relationship, you can create a new and positive  image and it will change the relationship, because you are connected  to that person even on a subconscious level.

Your unconsciousness is  linked to another unconsciousness. It doesn’t matter if they chant  or not, they will change. Who ever you have a problem with; you need  to chant for them to help change their unconscious image. You have to  work on it over and over and eventually your image will be projected  by them as well. This is really the truth. You can impact the images  for your entire family. You have to use the right side of your brain to do this. That is the purpose and the function of the right side of  the brain, so use it.

You should write a diary. Not a diary of what  happened to you today, but how you want your life to unfold the next 10, 20, 30 years, etc. If you do, your life will change.

You can literally write your own destiny.NINE CONj
