    Nembutsu is a great word for 2018! And beyond….:)

    Enthuses and reassures…got my tattoo (previously mentioned the intention here) in Japanese of Namu Amida Butse on my left forearm, above my wrist/mala place up to elbow-bend. Daft/egotistical/bombu….but showing faith? A permanent (for this physical life) expression/reminder of nembutsu…

    My personal word for 2018 would be ‘Action’ or ‘Activity’. In literal terms I need to be more physically active…I’m getting on in years and my job is sedentary. I love helping people in my job, but I want to do more out of work (wage-slavery) time…looking for voluntary work. Political engagement…have joined Scotland based campaign/movement called RISE (Respect, Independence, Socialism, Environmentalism) – follows through with my previous political activity/affiliations but will be involved overtly as an engaged Buddhist…rather than “socialist who’s also Buddhist”. Am I having ego-driven self definition issues here! 🙂

    Enjoy 2018

    peace, love and light
