So grateful for this forum, and so grateful for this Dharma path, which not only teaches me to embrace my idiocy, but that BECAUSE of my idiocy that I will be saved!

Because of my failures, both in life and in my quest for enlightenment, I am getting humbled.

Because of Shinran's teachings, I can "Leverage" (make use) of my stupidity and recognize that on my own, enlightenment is a hopeless endeavor.

In THAT recognition, then I become open to entrusting myself to Other Power.... and in that, my salvation can be found.

Hi, my name is Truth, and I am a stumbling, bumbling idiot!
