The topic of this podcast episode is pessimism, which can be defined as a lack of hope or confidence in the future. At different times in our lives, all of us might experience pessimism, especially if we feel the odds are stacked against us. This can be compounded by societal conflicts and current affairs. Our guest is Stuart Adams, a firefighter in California who relays the story of how chanting Nam-myoho-renge-kyo helped him transform pessimism into a life of confidence and action.
