Hello and good morning!
« on: November 22, 2015, 07:53:39 am »
Well...it's morning here at least in s Florida!
So...I'm a 47 year old father of three and really...life just seems meaningless anymore. It's sad that I feel this way, but I do. I was raised by Christian parents but turned away from that when I was 14 (exactly the time of my confirmation and my mom told me I was "a man now" having let Jesus in my heart I could decide for myself if I wanted to continue going to church).  I really wish I had some kind of faith or belief in something in my life, but the traditional "god" figure just seems ridiculous to me, and considering how much hate and suffering is carried out in "his" name (him being Jesus, or Jehovah, or Mohammed, whoever), I just can't subscribe to it.
Buddhism has been something that, over the years I've considered following but just never went through with it. I'm honestly not sure I even understand it. BUT I need something in my life...some kind of (alternate) direction to help me with the one I'm already on.

SO my plan is to poke around and read, maybe find some good articles, or even youtube videos that might be of information and/or direction.

And that's me in a nutshell, so thanks for having me and I hope to get some good info and awareness if possible. 

Cheers!
