Cayce created the topic: Hey there!

Greetings all,

My name is Azelya, and I'm a curious newcomer. In short, I've only had bad experiences with religion in my past (oppressive Christian family). This is despite always feeling like an incredibly spiritual person (drawn to Eastern style religion's such as Buddhism ).

Recently I stumbled across Jedisim while randomly plodding around the Internet, and was very intrigued for a few reasons, including the fact that the doctrine really resonated with a woman of my mentality.

So I figured I'd start looking around and exploring! Beyond the super serious stuff, I'm a professional cook, huge nerd and gamer/electronics tinkerer.

So... hi!

You had me at professional cook and huge nerd. :p

Welcome!

You will find many of the posts concerning meditation, finding balance, centering, and on 'general behavior' tend to have a more Zen-nish / Buddhist flavor. (We try to steal... er, borrow from the best!)

So... welcome (again) and poke about. Jax or one of the other folk can get you set up with the Intro material and you can spook about the general forums stuff to get a feel for things.

Now... about those Jedi cupcakes...

Eh, cupcakes are nice, but you had me at "huge nerd". :rofl

Welcome! I think you'll find that many of us share your preference for spirituality over religion. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, and I look forward to seeing you around!

(Edit: the dark side has cookies though...)

(Edit 2: but apparently there is something about cupcakes I don't get.... And you're a cook so you could probably bake your own)
