*Insert Witty Greeting Here*
« on: June 16, 2012, 11:00:36 pm »
Hello all!

It's a pleasure to meet everyone. My name is Calim. I was raised United Methodist, but never really felt the faith. I first discovered Buddhism a little over a year and a half ago. I studied it for a long time before taking Refuge and becoming Buddhist. Since then, my version of Buddhism has changed a bit. I try to keep true to ideals of Buddhism and the teachings of Lord Buddha. At the same time, I take cues from my Japanese ancestors and combine Buddhism with other religions to form my own path, which I call Chaos Buddhism because it's crazy. I do worship in the Shinto style at times, and have my own kamidana, though my true patron is Cernunnos. I view Him as most other deities are viewed in Mahayana Buddhism: a personal manifestation of impersonal Buddhanature. He has yet to comment on this, though appears to consider Buddhism interesting. Hard to tell with Him.

Now that we have the religious aspects out of the way, I'll give a little info on me personally. My family is French in origin, with a little German blood. We are also mixed-race, and Category 4 Cherokee Citizens. I have located my ancestor on the Dawes Rolls, though I have not sought full tribal citizenship for a variety of reasons.

I love old stuff. I collect antiques, like my antique incense burner I bought at a pawnshop. I have reliable information that said censer was used at a Buddhist temple in Japan. I also have an antique offering bowl.

I'm gay, but also involved with the Boy Scouts of America, so don't tell anyone. :whis:Obviously, I am in full support of recent proposals to National Council.

I have an herb garden, though it is very small. They're in containers. I try to live "green" and care very much for the Earth. Politically, I am a Democratic Utopian Socialist.

So that's me in a nutshell. I'm looking forward to learning with everyone! :)
