"As you become aware of your life’s tendency to cycle among the lower six worlds, you can develop a seeking mind to escape from them."
The whole point to CHANT is to keep from succumbing to the lesser tendencies (aka the lower worlds).

He says, "Nichiren spoke of earthly desires being used as fuel for the flame of wisdom. Buddhism teaches the converting of personal ambitions and desires, even base ones, into good traits like wisdom through altruistic living. A Buddhist doctrine that earthly desires are enlightenment indicates that greed, anger (violence) and egocentricism can be transformed into altruistic traits like compassion, trust and nonviolence. The underlying delusions that drive our desires - including the desire for the development of science and civilisations - can be essentially transformed in a way that changes selfishness into altruism, violence into nonviolence and suspicion into trust."
It's turning poison into medicine - it's our mission - to embrace our "poison" so that we can transform it into "medicine".
You must be in the same chapter with Rayana.
Let's strive and work harder for kosen-rufu in our respective area.

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.
