I have been a serious SGI member for about three years. In that time I feel like I have established a strong "routine" practice of twice daily Gongyo and attending SGI activities especially in my district. I am working with a few potential new members who are giving Daimoku a try. I study the Gosho, the Sutra, and many books. I feel like in the 3 years I have been really chanting, I have become a member in full. In and of its self, for a person whose life condition was as bad as mine, that was nothing short of astounding. Even to me. But now that I'm here: where to go?

So I thought a discussion about people's Human Revolutions might be nice. Have other members felt this in their practice? And how did you proceed? Are there any really new members feeling a bit overwhelmed like I very often do?

Here's what I feel at the moment.

Armed with a strong practice an a higher life condition, I embark on phase two. Human Revolution. Im so excited that sometimes I feel giddy. The reality of it though is daunting. I think about the familiar proverb that a bluefly clinging to the tail of a thoroughbred can travel 10,000 miles. And that a journey of 10,000 miles begins with a single step. Whew. I have an amazing thoroughbred that is Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. I'll get there.
