    I might not have the same belief as you, I might believe something and you do not. But I can not say to you in either case that you are wrong :) I really hope that the life you live, being a spiritual life or a none spiritual life is giving you what you wanted and for those of you who do have a religious or spiritual belief can find peace in mind and body, that what you believe is the right good for you.
    I will support you in your quest for new answers and I will always be open to answering your questions. But I can not promise my wisdom will guide you to where you need to be.

    To those who like to make critique of religions or spiritual living, I am open to your questions and your critique of where i am in my own seeking for truth. Some times you open my eyes to something I had not thought of, or when I go back and look at the teaching I find that my understanding was limited too :) So in both speaking with very spiritual people and to speak to super atheists is something I can learn from :)

    No matter what, I am grateful for being a part of this group :) And I wish all of you find what you been searching for :)

    I finally figured out what direction I should go, when I studied the revelations of the Baha'i faith
    I like hearing about your beliefs, as if I'm not mistaken, they involve understanding my faith as well:

    I think truth can be found everywhere, so yes some of what you belive in would be a part of my understanding too :)

    There are some people I definitely hope do not find what they are looking for, because they are looking for very bad things at the expense of others

    I really feel the same way. Although I am not a Buddhist I believe Buddha was gained His Wisdom from an Unknowable Essence some refer to as God and attained Nirvana. In many ways I feel just as close to Buddha as I do to Christ and Baha'u'llah. Its good to have you on RF. :D

    If you know they are on what you see as a "wrong path" Instead of pushing them even further down with not trying to help them, is it not you who then do wrong? If I understand you correct you understand both Buddhism, Taoism, and some other spiritual teachings. Do you not see the good in helping those who struggle, even they try pushing you down?

    I had not seen a chart like this before. This bears thinking about.

    I think the thing I had been looking for turned out to be the journey itself. It never ends, and will always be different.

    I do not support the evil, but if possible I would like to get them toward the good side. In my view, there is always a hope we can save them once you call evil. And if they bugging me, maybe it is a reason they do it, maybe it is me who has something to learn. it can be compassion benevolence or other things to become good our self. But i will not push them away

    Would you protect all things even knowing pacifism can send evil to hell without violence in any way?

    Like synonymous things? Such as faith and trust, or truth and honesty.
