But, my diamoku is helping me change and him. Together we are taking it one day at a time.Together we are learning to be happy ant let serious illness run our lives.
I would like to share my experience. I have cancer living in me. Please note I do not call it "my cancer". Actually I call it Fred. As a nurse I had determined years ago that if I ever got cancer, I would not use allopathic medicine. I had seen the ravages of cancer therapy in the hospitals and nursing homes in which I worked.
When I realized that something was not right, I started on a natural medicine modality. I used that for 3 1/2 years to slowly get the cancer out.
During this time, I went to FNCC because I wanted to go one more time before I died. That started a wonderful addiction to FNCC. One of my trips there, I was at the Lake Side Gohonzon room chanting and came to the realization that cancer only wants to live. Just like me
I started to chant for the cancer, to jobutsu the cancer and that when it is reborn, it be a higher life form that understands the sanctity of life and not have to eat me or anyone else for food.
I realized that cancer is not evil. It is simple minded, single minded, in that it only wants to live. Just like me.
Since chanting like this, I have come to know that life is precious, not only to me, but to every living thing in the universe.
I still use natural medicine to keep Fred down to a livable place.
Because of this experience, I laugh a whole lot more, enjoy the view more and want to talk to people, meet people and enjoy the life I now have.
