Hi there Solo,
It's nice to read your posts again
I totally agree with what you have written. I have a lot of respect for the Budhha. To think he could of stayed in that lifestyle that he was brought into but instead he chose to see beyond the walls of materialism, he didn't follow the "status quo" and went out to search for himself, I have a lot of respect for people like that. We can all learn from many ascended masters as they can bring us closer to God and even if anyone doesn't believe in God they can still believe in peace, light, inner truth, wisdom, goodness, after all that's the secret behind making the world a better place.
