    That you don't know much about anyone based on their theological or political self labelling.

    Everyone is different (but i knew that) and some are very touchy if you ask questions about their belief that they cannot answer.

    I've only been in this particular forum a very, very short time, not really long enough for substantial "ah ha" changes to take place. But it is my assumption that they will with time. I have always been open to learning to others, that these sort of forums are a give and take, that in addition to teaching and sharing, I come hoping to learn a thing or two as well, enjoying being "stretched." Probably the area most likely for the next area of learning seems to be coming from the faith of Baha'i.

    In fact, I think I am this way to a flaw. In addition to my own faith, I know an incredible amount about Protestantism, Catholicism, Taoism (philosophical, physical, and religious), and Native American spirituality. But I feel this has come at a price. I've had experiences in sweat lodges and Tai Chi at the expense of studying in the shul. No one can do everything. I've often wondered if I have done the best thing. Would I choose differently if I could go back and do it again? Who can say. If I chose differently, I most assuredly would be a quite different me than the me I have become.

    I've learned that everyone has everything figured out. :thumbsup:

    Kind of makes you wonder why places like this are even necessary.
