Going With Buddhism

Recommended Posts

Guest angie

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 have my first endo appointment today. So nervous.   My wife is hoping they will find something wrong with me and that I won’t be eligible for HRT. She is still very much against anything that even hints I’m a woman. Hoping she comes around eventually, but I can’t keep going on the way I am now.    Have a a great day everyone.    *hugs*

      I still wear my breast forms whenever I feel like that I need a little help.  My natural size is a 38B and my breast forms are a B cup so it does help me when I am feeling like I need a little help.  But there are some times I sleep in my breast forms and some times I dont.   But to me it is all about comfort and how realistic you look.   What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF.            I love Vicky's quote here and I guess that I am a Trans individual cause I will admit that I love wearing a bra but OMG it feels so good to take it off when I get home.

      A year in and I still don’t mind wearing a bra. At the start I liked the bralettes best. There still my go to for pjs on super hot nights too. Underwire isn't comfortable, but it sure does a great job of pushing everything where it belongs.  I use the little add a cup chicken cutlets still at times. Usually with something that shows a lot of cleavage cause the rest of the time I just don’t care.

      For me it’s one simple thing. No more being fake. I get to meet people and be myself. I get to dress walk talk act and be myself. That’s it.

      I am in a bit of a twighlight zone as I am not really sure if I am out or not. This is maybe partly due to not (at the moment) intending hormones, surgery or legal changes. That said I am pretty much out and relaxed in it. Yesterday I had a chance meeting with one of my partner's sisters (who knows) and her new boyfriend who she has just moved in with. Interestingly it was a good meeting quickly relaxing, although he was obviously initially surprised (actually he was so attractive I think the body language kicked in lol, a good catch for her). It is seldom, if ever, I get embarrassed when I chance meet someone I know when wearing a skirt or dress these days as it is me. A good point to me about coming out is not really having to think much about it any more.   Tracy

      I forgot to post this yesterday. I got Ma'am d. Or at least I hope it was.   I help out a lady customer with some parts. As she walked away I swore I hear her say, Thanks, Ma'am. It is my first. With my hair in a high pony tail (girl style, to keep it off my neck in the heat) and my fingernails painted + my ladies Minnie Mouse watch.   It felt good.   Kymmie
