Greetings. I also live in a rural area- in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas- and I've found that if you have a desire to locate your Sangha (Community), you will find it. Look for people who are of like mind, and then things will grow from there. I also was raised in a Christian home, which gave me a good foundation for understanding what makes sense and what does not make sense (Think with your heart and not your head). You're on your path, and you know what is best for yourself and the world. Keep it simple- Like John Lennon, Jesus, HH Dalai Lama, and Siddhartha said, "All you need is love." Be as generous as possible with all others and show compassion to even your enemies- Your enemy could have been your mama in a past life. Good luck, and keep on truckin.
