Hello From British columbia

Postby teebee » Wed Mar 17, 2010 6:37 pm

Hello everybody from Delta, B.C.

I consider myself a sectless Buddhist,
but have had a lot of involvement
with Shin Buddhism since the mid 50's.

Mainly since I met my future wife at
the Toronto Buddhist Church & later
this year we will celebrate our 50th.

Belief systems are like lovely stepping stones over the quicksand of ignorance and amnesia.
Each may be useful, but if you stand too long upon one, it will sink into the quicksand and
you may be trapped. So the wise course is to skip over each stone, appreciate its
usefulness and beauty, and find your way over the quicksand without getting mired in it.

I'm driving through BC tonight, on my way to Victoria. I will wave "hi" to you as I pass through. :smile:

Thanks for the wave. :smile:

Have just moved from Victoria,
going to miss it.

Cheers,
