The first weeks of class were the beginning of something big for me. Perhaps a revelation. I was learning to meditate in class. I have become fascinated with Buddhism. As a Bahai’ I have learned that we each have a spiritual path to walk. We learn to respect others and their own paths. I spent many years studying the Bible before I was a Bahai ‘ and even went to a Nazerene University for a semester. There I learned how to judge people and that I had to wear only certain clothes and think only a certain way. I went through a kind of brainwashing. I no longer follow organized religion. I have read many of the Bahai’ writings and studied the Muslim faith. When I was married I was introduced to the Native American path. It is simple and peaceful. During the beginning of this class a woman called my business wanting a catsitter. We went to her house for the initial interview. I was totally blown away. She is Buddhist and told me to help myself to any books I would like to read while I stayed there. I spent a few nights reading the story of the Buddha. It is beautiful and fascinating as we have learned in class. At work I met a coworker who is Buddhist. I shared my experiences with him and we have become friends now. The creator has set me on a journey and I am sure my study of Buddhism has just begun.
