6 Point Plan for Achieving Our Goals By May 3rd! Human Revolution in a week!

I have had quite a week. Highs and lows. I've gotten more responsibility at work,  Ben is back in the hospital...and we need a viable plan for his life that will make him happy...and an end to his suffering.

And this week it all felt like too much. I had several "not that old karma again" moments this week...and by this morning I was done. 

I felt like giving up. I said I just can't do this anymore. 

And the beauty of our practice is this:
I chanted Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. I took action. I went and walked on the treadmill to boost my spirits. 
After chanting I called for support from my girlfriends. I set an appointment for a massage.  I also arranged to get together with my friend of 33 years tonight. Little did I know this "home visit" was going to change my life. 

Throughout the day
my mood remained low. 
All day I felt hopeless. 
For one day. 
I talked to Kate Randolph, my dear friend and Buddhist sponsor in LA, and she read me a quote from the April Living Buddhism about how Human Revolution takes place in an instant...and changes EVERYTHING...and I started to feel the old me coming back. I will get that quote tomorrow and add it here. 

When I got to my friend's house she told me her cancerous tumor had grown. We both decided NOW is the time. May 3rd is a week away. We created this plan of success. 

Would you like to join us? Are you ready for a change? 
Would you like to create a ONE WEEK HUMAN REVOLUTION?

Here's Our 
6 Point Plan to Achieving Our Goals by May 3rd!
By Jamie Lee Silver of 

1. Clarify and write your goals. What do you HAVE to breakthrough to declare a victory on May 3rd? What are you willing to do to achieve it? Study? Encourage people? Chant more regularly? Clean your altar (always a life-changing thing to do) What goal would light your fire?
Mary wants to look and feel great for an event, and buy a new TV. I want certainty in a few areas, among other things. 

2. Decide how will you support your well being. I made a goal to walk for 20 minutes every day. "When there's movement in your body  - there's movement in your life."  

3. Set a chanting goal. I'm chanting 2 hours a day this week to accomplish my goals. Join me if you'd like - or set your own goal. 

4. You may want to find a chanting partner. The beauty of this is you encourage another while encouraging yourself. We shared our written goals and plans with each other. If you don't have a chanting partner you can share your goals and plans with me at

5. Make your schedule for success. 
We wrote out the days and times we will chant together and chant apart. You can find someone to do this with, or join me every morning and evening. 

6. Plan a celebration for your victory! We planned a celebration for Saturday night...we're not quite sure what we will do but it will be great! 

Join us!

May third is Sunday! 

Let's create Human Revolution by then. We can do it. 
What will you accomplish and what are you willing to do for it? How much does your life hurt? Enough to chant two hours a day with me? Enough to make your list, polish your gongyo? Do shakubuku? 

What's at stake and what do you have to gain? 

Let's go for it. Go Buddha Go!
