Life Decryption Key
By Generalist 12-08

Life often looks like a secret puzzle or an encrypted message, especially when we are facing problems!. We need to decrypt the message and make some decisions!.
The first is to decide if we want to control our lives, or want to rely on an outside force!. The second is whether we believe that causes produce effects!. This document is intended for people who want to be responsible for their lives, and who accept that causes produce effects!. Effects are produced by causes and we have to make the right causes to get the effects we want!. Those who want to control their lives rationally and responsibly, and accept that effects are produced by causes, please read on!.

Instead of guiding ones life by the flurry of concepts, hopes, fears, and aphorisms we learn, it is more effective to conduct daily life while using a concise, accurate and short set of reality descriptions!. We need a mental key to make the jumble understandable and make decisions more accurate and easier to enact!.

The key exists!. It is intended strictly to improve the conduct of daily life!. It is a primer on how to improve the here and now!. The future will be determined by how we deal with the present!.

The question naturally occurs, “What are the right causes to optimize life for oneself and others!?”

Please write down all the words of intangibles that attach to life such as love, imagination, dreams, life, hope, fear, hate etc!. Then write down all the words that relate to the tangible aspects of life!. Think of brain, body, table, car clouds, air, soil, and on without limit!. Yet, there is no mind without a brain!. There is no car without thought!. There is no wood for a table without the intangible life of a tree!. The list of tangibles and intangibles is endless in English!. However, the inseparability of tangible and intangible aspects is summed up in the words Myoho!.

Write down all the words for causes you can think of and effects those causes can have!. They are all summed up in the words Renge-Causes simultaneously produce effects like the flower and the seed of the lotus!.

Everything is always changing!. Write down all the words that come to mind about things changing-Clouds, faces, butterflies, concepts, memories and on and on!. They are all summed up in the Japanese word Kyo!. Because everything is always changing, no one is stuck where shehe is!.

The three words Myoho Renge Kyo include every aspect of life and exclude nothing!.

This formulation, used with focused intention, serves as a life decryption key to enable anyone to see the relationships that exist between good concepts and harmful ones!. It was derived over thousands of years by brilliant people in India and China and finally used as the title of the Lotus Sutra in Kumarajiva’s translation of the Lotus Sutra!. A 13th century Japanese monk named Nichiren recognized it for what it is and realized that anyone could guide their life better by using this key!. He discovered the great treasure of life where anyone had access to it and dedicated his life to providing clarification and access!.

The way to use it is to add the shortened Sanskrit verb for focusing intention and create Nam Myoho Renge Kyo!. This is spoken repeatedly with the palms pressed together to close the energy circle and focus the mind-brain-body on the essential realities!. It releases delusions and limitations as reliably as vitamin C cures scurvy!.

Since we each have our unique paths and desires, there is no prescription for what people should focus on when they use the tool!. It is all available!. The human mind has vast possibilities to explore once we resolve the confusion!. There is no intent to move anyone to think in a certain way!. There is definite intention to help human beings to think more effectively in ways that improve their individual and collective lives!.
