When we speak of eternal truth, it is not something that is just lying around quietly somewhere; it is found in rigorous struggle. The Daishonin teaches that from the perspective of the Mystic Law, both delusion and enlightenment are one. When we strive to defeat and break through our delusion or fundamental darkness, the power of our enlightened nature shines forth. Because we believe in our own Buddha nature, we can wage this inner struggle. Also, through continuous efforts to challenge ourselves in this way, our enlightened nature manifests as the power to create value. The Mystic Law is found only in such unceasing struggle.
