(MK 18:14 & 25 “Thought is the invisible link by which the individual comes into communication with the Universal, the finite with the Infinite, the seen with the Unseen…. he who has his heart in his work is certain to meet with unbounded success. He will give and continually give; and the more he gives, the more he will receive.”)

“The concept of fearlessness as an offering challenges us to see how our inner/human revolution can evolve into a blueprint for world peace. Our emotions allow us to see and affect the change needed in our behavior, actions or relationships.” …excerpt World Tribune/Living Buddhism.
“We are always capable of maintaining a sense of connection with others, and through this can offer moments of authentic happiness to those around us, bringing our humanity to an ever-greater luster. These moments become the living record of our being, held in our own hearts and the hearts of others. This noble inner brilliance of life is the manifestation of an empowerment that persists under any circumstance.” …excerpt from SGI President Daisaku Ikeda’s 2015 Peace Proposal.
No matter what the circumstances, you should never concede defeat. Never conclude that you’ve reached a dead end, that everything is finished. You possess a glorious future. And precisely because of that, you must persevere and study. Life is eternal. We need to focus on the two existences of the present and the future and not get caught up in the past. We must always have the spirit to begin anew “from this moment,” to initiate a new struggle each day. ~ Dr Daisaku Ikeda
“Communication is an offering. When you tell someone your truth, you must release your expectation of what the other person should do with it. They may thank you profusely, love you forever, argue with you, or ignore you. It doesn’t matter. Of course we hope the gift will be received with appreciation and thanks. But if it isn’t we must not dictate. We’ve done our part, and we must trust the universe to do the rest.” “It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.” ~ Alan Cohen
