I have declared this the year I will become a buddhist. I am craving a more solid foundation and well...buddhism is for me. I don't think I can go to anything organized but I will at least incorporate meditation into my daily life. I will go to a temple to experience it at least once. I need to learn acceptance and could always use more patience. I also have loads of compassion. So...we'll see. My brother went thru AA and is now a Baptist. I have never talked about this in my blog but if there is a time it is now. He tells me I am going to hell unless I accept Jesus Christ as my savior. I was brought up with Christian values and beliefs but my Ma is not a big fan of organized religion. This may help explain why I am not a natural Joiner of things. We went to community chapel as kids for about 4 or so years and even went to Church camp 2 summers in a row at Twin Rocks Oregon. Now don't get me wrong. Everybody needs to do their own thing where spirituality is concerned and I am not knocking anyone's beliefs. I think true Christians are amazing folks and I admire them for having their beliefs and feeling grounded by them. So...it will be Buddhism for me. I am going to try it and see what I think.
As for other goals in 2007...I have many....
