Buddhism and the 12-steps...

I believe we are all one in this giant cozmic egg of life.
I also believe there is a serious crack in the egg...

All of our religions carry one central meassage,
a common thread run's through most all of them. :japanese2

Wanted to share this web page,
it was very comforting and calming.

And as you can see... I need to work on being calm....

Kel,

Thanks to Mackat's recommendation a few weeks ago (I think on Kathi's spirituality thread) I've started to read "The Zen of Recovery" by Mel Ash. "No thing" more to say.

Let's see, I think you go to the user cp and and find "Settings and Options"

Go in to "Edit Avatar" and take it from there...

I am still clueless on how to import my own pictures, but hopefully will figure it out one day......

to import your own pics. you just need to use advanced mode, then below the text window click on the link that says "manage attachments" if your pics are too large you can use a resize tool in just about any photo editor software... I like ACDSee as it lets me do on the fly editing.

Thanks Kel,
I have Buddhist beliefs and they work nicely with the 12 step program. Balance is the key in my life. Thanks for the website. Hugs, Magic

KelKel- thanks for the link- i really dug it. Buddhist concept and philosophy is a powerful tool in recovery. The Eight Winds, The Four Noble Truths, The Ten Worlds, and various other teachings have helped me every step of the way. Not to mention the discipline in chanting twice daily and facing myself. I respect the beliefs of others and what works for them...this has worked for me. love- alice Buddhist/Pagan Swinger
