Good to know--Yes, I'm an Atheist, but I love Buddhism, and also consider myself a Buddhist. Even when I was calling myself a Christian, I realize now, that I always more of a Buddhist, I just didn't know it because I'd never studied it. I'd always been told that those who "worshiped" Buddha, were sinners going to hell. So glad I finally awakened.
Wow. Crazy to think that a year ago in January we got away from all that. Even more crazy how we were so manipulated we didn't realize we were starving and being used as much as we were. I'm glad we got away. And those scars are finally starting to fade. You didn't win. We did.
