Thank you all for the kind greetings. Thank you to Cloud as well, for the inquiry. While I have studied the variety in philosophy and religion casually all my life, I have felt pulled towards Buddhist teachings, specifically following the Dalai Lama, in the past couple years. I feel more peace and truth in his words than any other. I am in the process of formulating a new non-profit organization to bring the essence of compassionate living to all humanity, without regard to any particular differentiator. It is my hope that this will lead to a more peaceful and cooperative local & global society that can embrace the coexistance of the variety inherent within. I welcome any advice, ideas or (constructive) criticism. Let me know if there is anything in particular that any of you feel would be of importance to such a concept, as well as if anyone would like assisstance with anything. I live to serve; through service I find salvation.
