Any-one else a buddhist or had/have an interest in it? I was bought up Catholic but never practiced, I had trouble believing in god/a higher being who could decide my future or something. Beginning of this year I was really depressed because I came out a relationship I was very attached to even though it was long distance (3,500 miles). Anyway, I became interested in Tibetan Buddhism because I had a interest in Tibet oppression anyway. I love the peaceful way of thinking and have also believed in "non violence". Since I started with buddhism aswell I've believed more in orginal catholic faith. It's weird. Buddhism is not something to convert to but a way of thinking I really believe in. I am not fully buddhist as I still eat meat and find it hard to grasp certain things. I often meditate and when I get into a mediation state I feel great the for the rest of the day and into the next day. So does any-one have an interest? I can tell any-one more about it to if you interested but I've gone on long enough here.
