The Gray Was Lifted

I just recently found my way to Buddhism.  I'm 25 and I disliked everything about organized religion.  But, after taking a non-western religion class about a year or to ago I found out about Buddhism. I kind thought of myself as a spiritual person but by no mean a religious one.  Then about 2 months ago I guess I started having urges to research religions.  Well long story short.  I found the Buddhist way is the way for me "The Middle Ground"

I like that... "the middle ground". Isn't it amazing how our paths are different to get to Buddhism, but how it changes us all? Makes us (at least that I've noticed) happier, compasionate? That's why I am glad for the Buddha and his teachings.

everyone knows.. buddhism is scriptural rather than religion..<br />

so my question is... what buddhism says.. when we don't 've to worship or mediate any buddha... instead of them directly to sole God..

I too have recently been researching Buddhism. I feel it fits me more than anything else I have come across. Religion never made sense to me, even as a child. Luckily, I grew up in a warm, open household where I was free to determine my own way. I don't know if I could go without any lovely wine or vodka though, so I guess reaching a truly enlightened state wont happen for awhile. I know there is a lot to learn, but I think the message is finding yourself, and being as whole as you can be.
