“Truth and Principle are of the One and cannot be altered or ruined.” Grandmother Pa’Ris’Ha
Response to my Nichiren Shoshu Buddhist Sister
I appreciate your sharing this article. This is another great voice of validation for my work on birthing, and the impact to the fetus from the conjugal act and the influence of the mother.
For many, many years I pondered the meaning of the principle of Buddhahood in the nine worlds. I had come to realize that until I see that I am not separate from Source this Truth would not make any sense. I have spent endless hours of study and living experiences only to come full circle with what is shared here which is “we are Source is”.
There is no outside and inside all is One. Our patterns of Brokenness/karmic threads/good/evil are the choices that continue to solidify the ridge of separation. We cannot evolve until we are willing to accept as the Buddha has stated, “the difference between a Buddha and a common mortal is a Buddha knows he is a Buddha.”
For the many of us who come to this profound truth from our Christian religions this is hard to grasp, as the mind has been so flooded with the erroneous thought forms, that there was only One perfect man which was the one called Joshua Ben Joseph (Jesus). Many who cannot except the power, responsibility and sacredness of who they are find it hard breaking through this pattern, for some who have strayed so far from Truth impossible. In truth we are all the Intention of Source. Buddhahood exists in all sentient and non sentient.
Buddha reminds us that, “Because the various sutras taught before the Lotus Sutra do not expound the mutual possession of the ten worlds, those who desired to become Buddha’s had to seek escape from the nine worlds. This was because the provisional sutras did not teach that the nine worlds are endowed with Buddhahood. Therefore they assert that by eradicating evil and extirpating illusions one is sure to become a Buddha. Because they do not teach that Buddhahood is inherent in the common mortal, they assert that one must rid himself of his present form as human or heavenly being or evil person, and then he can attain Buddhahood” (Gosho Zenshu, p.403).
