Profile Information

About Me (tell us a little bit about yourself):
I am a humanistic psychologist that have been practicing as a Buddhist Psychologist for a period fifteen years. For the last ten years I have been working as a self-employed professional who has dedicated half my life to assisting individual with changing their destiny from negative to positive, regardless of their religious background. I respect religious diversity, and often use the faith of the individual when assisting them with dealing with core issues. Often times, I am able to introduce this great Buddhism to my clients, that have experienced actual proofs in their lives, even though some return to their religion of origin, but continues to embrace the Lotus Sutra, during time of crisis! I am seeking to offer educational opportunities to those Bermudian who are not able to go to college fulltime, but are receptive to workshop with continuing education certificates, so to be able to earn the necessary credits to enter undergraduate programs, and etc. I assist Individual with chemical addictions to work around their addictions to regain their identity and self respect, and not to allow their addiction to define their entire being! I am a long solider struggling in the wilderness, with the Gohonzon in the center of my life!

Dear Friends:

I would like to apologize for the toxic waste that I have spewed over the last couple of days. I have been able to understand why I have been dealing with such toxic feelings- This morning as I was driving to work, an over whelming feeling of sadness came over me, then the wisdom as to why I had to go through what I have been going through the last four years, feeling of abandonment that had to be purged through my experiences. I have as a result, and thanks to your… Continue

Why are members made to feel guilty if they do not participate in the Zaimu Campaigns!

Dear friends;

I have been heavily burdens over the guilt one must feel surrounding making contribution for the upkeeping of leaders who are paid salaries! Are we not making contribution when we open our homes for meetings, visiting and calling members on our cellular and home phone numbers, using gasoline to travel to meetings, transporting members to meetings and etc. and taking the time to nurture new and long time struggling members?



I take deep offense when I am told that… Continue

Shakabukuing Connecting to the Spirit of Nichiren Daishonin!

Posted on April 6, 2009 at 9:30am 4 Comments

June 7, 1984 I joined Nichiren Daishonin True Buddhism. It was easy to accept this new philosophy, but was difficult to follow the teaching , coming from another religion, but due to my quest for knowledge, I purchased the third volume of the Major Writings of Nichiren Daishonin, thinking that I was going to advance quickly by reading the advanced book (smile). I was unable to sit for long periods at a time facing the gohonzon due to my level of frustration and burnt out syndrome. In reading… Continue

Hi Betty...Colonics have been an excellent way for me to help my clients but just before I started spending so much time in Trinidad with my parents I came across the Enagic Transformational Alkaline water Device. It has forever changed the depth at which I can help myself, my clients and their families and how they can help other too. You might want to check my Kangen water website at: www.watercleanse.yourbodyiswater.com. Hope to hear from you soon. Marcia

Good Day Frankie; I am in agreement with you! One of the things that I have going in my favor is I laugh a lot and has been told I have a beautiful smile, which I , in the past have been so busy taking care others that I forget how attractive I am when I take the time to look at myself in the mirror- You have such a beautiful heart which can be felt through your emails! Thanks for your compassion and deep understanding! Your friend Betty

Hi Betty,

The Value Of A Smile
by Author Unknown

A smile cost nothing, but gives much.

It enriches those who receive,
without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment,
but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it,
and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in business,
and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,
cheer to the discouraged,
sunshine to the sad,
and is nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone
until it is given away.

Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours,
as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

Hi Betty,
I am grateful to have you as my friend. We are no doubt thousand of miles apart but because of this Nichiren Daihonin's teachings, our heart is as close as our neighbor next door. Once again thank you for being my friend in faith and we can learn more and spiritually support each other. Would love to visit Bermuda one day.

Thanks for that translation. And thanks for the idea of searching online for the translation of Gongyo. There is so much to learn. I've used the SGI website for the last few months for learning material. I just started to go to meetings with my District. We've had some bad weather and a few of our meeting were canceled. Thanks for your support. .
