[N.B. This is the forum that was called ‘Exploring Buddhism’. The new name simply describes it better.]
One of the most difficult things to assimulate is how transformative the lay path can be and how futile desperate paths are. Eventually the very conditions/karma come back manyfold.

Nobody can give you a true answer to that question.
You'll have to find the answer yourself, inside you.
But, just for fun, read what comment comes up as my signature when I log off.
Did you think it was not there--
in your wife's lovely face
in your baby's laughter?
Did you think you had to go elsewhere (simply) to find it?
