Resolve to Become the Sun

Ikeda Sensei writes: “Some may have to endure the pain of seeing a parent criticized and attacked, even though he or she has done nothing wrong. … What’s important therefore, is that you resolve to become the ‘Sun’ within your family. …

“ … Of course, in life there are sunny days and there are cloudy days. But even on cloudy days, the sun is still the sun. The same is true for people. Even if we are suffering, it is vital that we strive to keep the sun shining brightly in our hearts.”
