When In Rhythm Life Flows Smoothly
When you consistently chant and do gongyo twice a day, you put yourself in rhythm with the universe every day. Being in rhythm feels like the difference between hitting every red light as you drive across town and hitting all the green ones instead. Life becomes easier, smoother, and happier and more grounded. Life just works better.
Being in rhythm means that things happen when needed and it’s not so much of a struggle to accomplish what you want to do. Whatever is needed in your life shows up.
Out of Rhythm;Life is Not So Smooth
If you have missed a day of practice, you have probably experienced what life is like when you don’t chant in the morning. I would imagine that day was a little off kilter, a little less easy. Not in rhythm.
Put Yourself In Rhythm First Thing
Even if you are running late in the morning, remember to do Sancho – chant Nam Myoho Renge Kyo three times. Put yourself in rhythm before you leave home.
