Introducing myself

Hello, all,



First I need to say that I am not a Baha'i. I have had a keen interest in things that are usually called "religion" and "spirituality" for as long as I can remember. However, I could never really fit myself into any of the existing religions that I am familiar with or otherwise know of.
I am familiar with Catholicism, some other forms of Christianity, some Hinduism and Buddhism.

I came here to to this forum hopefully get a new perspective on some topics that I have been wondering about for some time.



Thank you.

Welcome, Sophia! Your questions and insights will add to the Forum, as we all learn and grow with and from each other. I think you'll find the explanations from the Baha'i Writings to be both spiritual and rational.

"Spiritual" and "rational" -- two of the most controversial terms in existence.

A Hare Krishna devotee once told me, "Why go to a religious group at all, if you don't believe what it teaches?"

He was right. This is how religious groups usually function, whether they know it or not, whether they believe it or not, whether they admit it or not.

There's no point in visiting a religious group if one doesn't fit in.

So, without further ado, I'm off.

Take care.

Sophia - I wish you well in your journey and may you find your goal. May be one day we will meet again! I have learnt to never say never
