Are there any readers out there who practise Buddhism?
I'm been attempting to follow the ways of Zen Buddhism for about a month now and I'd like to discuss a few things with any other aspiring Buddhists.
Thanks for reading.
I love the theory of Buddhisms, but to be truly buddhist you have to give up all worldy possesions. Without money, one can't survive well in this society.
I just believe in all living things have the right to live. I walked all through my house just to let a spider out LOL
People always asked me about mosquitos, but tell you the truth, I don't get bothered by them, I gett he odd one floating around, but thats it.

I wrote a piece on Buddhism a few years ago that may interest you. Rather than copy and paste it, you can read it here:

Buddhism is different to everyone of course and to practise Buddhism one mustn't necessarily give up all worldly possessions. Much like how some who practise Judeism still eat pork products. I've actually begun giving up many of my luxury items.
Lately I've noticed little things that have really made me think. Such as if I find a spider in my house. Now the process is trap it and take it outside. I was hoping to meet someone else who is trying to follow some of the Buddhist ways to discuss a few things,
Batman, thanks for the link, I look forward to reading the piece.
