    Hi

    Hi all,

    I joined a couple of days ago. I've been practicing for about 30 years now; but was born and raised Catholic. Theravadin and Zen are where I feel most comfortable; but was affirmed into the Jodo Shinshu sect.

    Buddhism hasn't so much provided answers to life's difficulties, as given me a lens through which to look at the world and myself.

    Hi Kathy,
    I thought I would find answers, but it didn't turn out that way.
    In retrospect, what I did find is probably better.
