"Our Forever Ben" and the Secret to Achieving Your Human Revolution

Breaking news! 
Hope for the Day published "Our Forever Ben, One Mom's Letters to her son-in-spirit and his poetic replies."

Our Forever Ben is the story of turning poison into medicine. The book has two main goals: 
1. By telling Ben's story I hope to find a way to fix the sad state of mental health care in this country. 
2. And by sharing Ben and my writings since he "died," I hope to help those who are currently grieving see how easy it is to connect with their loved ones in spirit. 

I am chanting to continue to open to my mission to help others.  

Every day I am chanting the prayer that Daisaku Ikeda says is the key to our Human Revolution.

The Secret 
to Achieving Your Human Revolution

"Pray that instead of devils 
or negative, destructive forces 
infiltrating your being, 
Brahma ("Bonten"in Japanese),
Shakra ("Taishaku" in Japanese),
and the gods of the Sun and the Moon
~ the positive, protective forces of the universe ~
will enter your life!
Pray that they will enter the lives 
of all members in your region
and the entire membership of the SGI, as well.
If you do this, 
your strength will multiply 
a hundredfold, a thousandfold.
With such prayer,
with such faith, 
you will realize a fundamental transformation
in the depths of your life. 
This is the secret to achieving your human revolution."

SGI President Daisaku Ikeda, World Tribune, 9/8/2000

  1. I admire your spirit and you really change poison into a mission for your son. I read your story and I read on the prayer objectives and copying how your set your prayers. I open myself to kosen rufu after constantly reading your blog and by our daimoku we embrace happiness inside us. I hope to one visit the SGI to meet you where you are . I am in the other part of the world but no prayers go unanswered. I have two beautiful daughters and i appreciate them and i want to contribute so much to kosen rufu to learn from you your spirit. I am also chanting to shakabuku 5 in 2017
