Hello from St. Louis

Postby seekingpeace » Tue Jan 07, 2014 11:41 pm

I have recently decided to take refuge. as someone who comes from a Catholic family/friend group (extended and immediate) I have been tentative about answering the pull of buddhism, but I feel in my heart that this is the place for me. I am unsure of my steps in the right (or wrong!) direction, but I am discovering more every day.

The first of the four noble truths saved my life. I hope to find friends here and be a friend to all, as well.

now here is a jedi, because I love star wars :jedi:

Hello and welcome. :hi:
Just as the trunk of an ordinary tree
Lying in the forests of the Malaya mountains
Absorbs the perfume of sandal from the moist leaves and branches
So you come to resemble whomever you follow.
