What happens when the person he loves most, the love ruled his day & night, who is likely to be give birth to her first baby from that man, and the lady in question suddenly decides to break up & break his heart. What should one do at such a time? What guidance can one offer at such times? His world is shattered and faith in doubt. How can I help such a member whose faith was steadfast till yesterday? the guy feels betrayed as both are practicing members.
I have been in that situation before...and all I could do was hold onto this guidance from Sensei:
The important thing is to overcome the sorrow that accompanies any type of separation, such as death or divorce. The vital thing is to continue advancing. Do not look back. Just forge on. There are many reasons why people bid farewell to one another. People have their own thoughts and situations. The deep scars within your heart may not heal quickly. Yet brace yourself so you can look forward. You should strive to move on, cutting through the clouds in your heart. As long as you advance, new hope will be born. The sun will rise. Only when you continue to advance can you encounter an even better, more wonderful you
I hope you chant for him and keep encouraging him....its something that takes a lot of time but indeed gets better with time too.
people tend to be crippled by their present circumstance and given this one, it's difficult not to.
hopefully through chanting and reading and UNDERSTANDING more on faith, BOTH will gain wisdom to look into this situation in another light. Dialogue dialogue dialogue!
the universe is filled with boundless possibilities. life really IS BIGGER than this and they need to see that.
