Johnny depp teaching other johnny depps so they can rule the world in his absence
The mother Depp teaches it’s Depplings how to behave in the wild.
And unconsciously, it is seems to be a good thing. It indicates that life has been treating me well.
At the moment I am riding on some kind of high. Not that I have achieved anything that significant recently. But I just feel rejuvenated and full of hope. And my faith is seeping back into my veins again and it feels great. I am doing my best to maintain this faith by surrounding myself with positive people and reading President Ikeda’s messages of encouragement. I also have been reminding myself that I am an amazing human being - no matter what I’ve said or done in the past - and that everyday is a new opportunity to be better than my yesterday’s self.
Opening my heart to others is still challenging, but I am being more empathetic towards people - not the dog, because he’s been barking at 4 A.M. every morning non-stop (5 hours straight last night!). I am hoping to solidify more relationships through the philosophy of Soka Gakkai. I had a touching experience lately when I became newly acquainted with someone and later find out that we had been going to the same Buddhist centre for the past two years without ever meeting. I am unfamiliar of integrating relationships within SGI with life outside SGI activities - which is stupid I know! But this is my chance to break the barrier - so don’t judge me yet :P
As excited as I am to start overcoming challenges with this random outburst of energy, come Monday and all shit could break loose. Results for semester 2 will be out and in all honesty, and to be completely objective and realsitic, I am preparing myself for at least one ‘fail’. I made my cause, and I am getting ready to receive my effect - that’s all it is.
It will give me one more semester to figure out my life. But I kind of realised something today. My interests have not changed for the last 7 years. I was looking through old career planning and personality evaluations from high school and nothing has changed. And accordingly, I have not been true to myself in the path I have been choosing these last few years. It’s just fucking sad. I took a good look at myself from a third person perspective and just pitied this girl who wasted years doing something she knew she was never passionate about, thinking she would change her mind some day.
So I keep buying time to “figure out what to do with my life” when all I am doing is procrastinating. I would rather be confused and dumb than be courageous and pursue my dreams. What sort of example am I setting for the people around me, the younger generation, and the teachings of Nicheren Daishonin? “Every being has unlimited potential” - I accept that in my knowledge but it is so difficult to accept that in my heart.
"Consistency is success" - and I must see it through. The mystic law will support me when I dedicate myself to value creation. I know what I want to contribute to this world, and I have thought about how to do it. It’s time to stop thinking and start doing.
Yoko Ono’s ‘War Is Over’ Exhibition features a telephone maze with an actual connected phone in the middle which she actually calls every now and then!
That’s so cool!
Potential tip: figure out the time zone conversions before visiting and waiting for the phone to ring! Hehe
