Going With Buddhism

Hello,or shall I say...Nam Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo

I was dissatisfied with organized religion. Have been on a spiritual quest

my whole life.I am slow to open up and accept many things,especially religions.

Once I lost spirit at my last church,and slowly quit attending but unable to

attend a main stream church due to my more open bliefs. I wondered spiritually

for a time.It was Miss Jendar that planted the seeds of Buddhism in my mind...

But having my best friend,who's trans also,a member of the local Sokka Gakki

Nichiren Buddhist's,made my choice of trying this religion a lot easier.

From the first education class I attended they have shown interest,made a point

to call me,pick me up for a meeting or service.Now it hasn't been an(Oh this is

so cool I am joining right now)thing.For one,beyond the chanting(which I get a

lot from)the service is like nothing I have ever attended.And that took some time

to adjust to.Slowly I have opened up.Received my Gohonson and display box first.

Recently bought a good set of pink chanting beads and the rest of my alter accouterments.Now I am ready to make that commitment.It is time to really get into

this and see where Buddhism takes me.

Angie,

There are many paths to enlightenment and none is really any different as they lead to the same place.

Finding your path is the most important part - I hope that this fills the void that you have been feeling since leaving organized religions.

Peace is just a wonderful idea and I hope that you find contentment.

"Hope, Faith and Love and the greatest of these is Love."

Sally

      I suppose what makes me a bit hesitant/uncomfortable with my local provider is that it's based out of a women's health clinic that performs abortions for the most part, and I'm largely pro-life. 😕
    • Ellie Jean
      That's good to know. 🙂 Only reason I'd change my provider at this point is if I moved to Farmington Hills, Michigan, as Dr. William Powers of Powers Family Medicine would've been my ideal choice if location weren't an issue lol.

      Hello @Drayse, It’s a pleasure to meet you. Apparently, I missed your intro from yesterday. Your story has so many similarities to mine. It never ceases to amaze me just how many here have traversed similar life paths. And after the years of struggle, it’s nice to meet here in this safe and friendly place. I look forward to reading more about you in the coming months if you feel the desire. Share as you like...there’s no judgement. We try to help, encourage, and offer friendship.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      You look great @Bri2020. This is very nice outfit. There’s few to impress during covid anyways. You present fabulous as the rest of you ladies here do.

      Thank you, @Jandi It was worth every minute. So much information packed into 90 mins. My wife and I subscribed. We like her style...funny, memorable and on point. As @Mx.Drago points out, the mannequin scene was off the wall but most of her other comedy I enjoyed.    Thanks again for sharing, Susan R🌷

      Feel like screaming a bit, find this album helps alleviate the edge for me. 'The Side Effect' album by Coldrain

      I'm skeptical they'll ever find it but it is kind of fun to watch.   I am still a little fearful myself but I also want to live out in the world as myself. At least here I can push the envelope with my outfits and not receive destructive criticism. But this isn't FB. You hit that submit button and it's there to share. It's been helping me push myself along.   Congrats on hitting 4 months. For me things ...Well I thought my girls were growing a little at 2 months but then I had a, I guess say surge 6 months later. According to my trusty cloth measuring tape I'm a 34D and still fit fine in a 36a but maybe could be a B. I'm  throwing in the towel on this for a bit. I'll just wait see what happens. I'm planning to have made a final decision on BA by this next fall.

      Not a lady or a gentleman. Not my fault I don't fit. Not to seem ungrateful but slighted. Not everyday people consider or care. Not reason enough to be uncivil. They, them, their, theirs, themself, friend.

      Hey, I almost forgot. Oak island is on soon. Love that show. Maybe someday they will actually find the motherload. The journey is good. Get some interesting facts and theories. Talk later Ladies.   Jamie

      That's the way mine started, male flop, hard buds, then shape. And lets not forget PAIN when trying to squeeze through a tight doorway and rubbing nipples on door frame. That's an experience I didn't expect.    Hope we all get the breasts we want.   Oh, great news about your foot.   Jamie

      Hey, Natalie Wynn! I saw that she had posted in my YouTube feed, but I haven't had a opportunity to watch her video to completion.   I'm not reading the other comments...because, spoilers! XD
