I have been a catholic since I was born, but I recently have turned away from my faith. I know very little about Buddhism but from what I have read it seems to have sparked an interest. I have always felt a strong connection toward quotes I have read, and want to learn to meditate. I am trying to find a way to get to know myself better and be a better person. But being a new comer there frightens me because I would not even know what to do. I don’t want to be looked as a newcomer but a beginner. Thank you.
