For some reason, I find it more easy to follow the Buddhist belief system when I am trying to become more spiritual. I am Catholic, I love God with all of my heart, body, and soul, and would instantly give my .life for him, no hesitation. But they have so many beliefs that I think God would say, like The 5 Precepts: 1. Do not take life (this is why most Buddhists are veggie) 2. Do not take that which isn't given 3. Do not indulge in sexual misconduct/do not over indulge in the senses. 4. Do not pertain to falsehood. 5. Do not take any substances that cloud the mind. To me, this is what God wants. There are so many beliefs they have that I agree with so much, and it's easier than the bible in many ways. Also, I recently read some stuff on a Buddhist website that made sense to me, about how you shouldn't be held down to rituals and stuff, so don't do what people say or be held down by what the bible says (people's translations and renderings of what God wants, because people can not understand exactly what God wants for us or wants us to do), but to do what feels right in our hearts. Listen to what YOU KNOW is right, not what you think the bible means. Sorry to confuse every1 with my rambling, just a thought. I dunno, it seems like I find it more helpful to learn about God when I'm not tied down to "crap, does God want me to do this?" and "Am I allowed to do this?", like when I can be free, it helps me more to learn from Buddhism than from the bible. I will never stop loving God, I won't go buddhist or anything, but it helps me to learn from the openess and "do what u know is right" than the worrying about sinning and wondering if the bible hasd a problem with it.
