is not a trend.
And I find it really sad and disturbing that it is, in fact, becoming this way.
People conforming to New Age faiths such as Buddhism and Cabala, Scientology and Taoism at a whim - without so much as understanding the basic principles or beliefs.
I myself, who goes by no religion, know more of their "beliefs" than they do.
Coming across a Buddhist who isn't even familiar with the Dharma, or a Cabalist who didn't know the faith had Jewish roots - things like this upset me, because acts such as these taint the names of these religions, and hurt the ones who truly have it in their hearts.
I fully support and encourage everyone to find their true beliefs, and I understand the road there may lead you to experiment and try out many things, but don't make a commitment that you don't even understand.
I am Lion; hear me Roar.
