Changing is Applying

Alan Corial, France
 

 

I was introduced to Reiyukai when I was a university student in the faculty of science. Since their teaching was about self-improvement, I decided to join the organization.

 

In the beginning, I was heavily involved in Reiyukai's activities: I hosted monthly gatherings and interacted with other members. As my responsibilities grew at my work place, my work started to take up my time; I began to prioritize my career over my family and our relationship began to deteriorate. It started to take a toll even on the friendship I had with other Reiyukai members.

 

One day, I was told that my son got involved in drugs. I had a long chat with him, trying to find a solution to his problems. I even took up my sutra recitation in order to sincerely reflect on the things I have been lacking.

 

When I participated in France's Mini Mirokusan training with one of my coworkers, I shared my son's problem with him. Coincidentally, he had a similar issue with his son and many of the

Mirokusan participants also faced difficult situations with their children. At the time when I was reciting the sutra, I realized the fact that I didn't provide the attention and love that my son was yearning for. After my career became a priority, I forgot to love and show my appreciation to my family who have been supporting me for all this time. I repented my mistake . I also noticed how I had taken a similar attitude toward my my coworkers and others around me.

 

Once I had put my thoughts into action, the communication between my son improved. He told me that he had issues with his friends and he began to open up; he felt ostracized at school and felt that he was left out even at home. I apologized to my son for the lack of attention and love. In exchange, he promised that he would try to improve himself and his situation. I was content, being able to communicate with my son and understand the importance of connecting with my children.

 

Reiyukai's teaching is about self-improvement and helping others to change themselves. As my family and I were able to change, I truly believe that everyone can do the same by applying their thoughts into action.
