Some of you have already heard this part, but I wanted to do a dedicated blog post with it, as well.
My original intent behind creating the podcast was to make a platform for sharing my experiences along the way with others. Sort of an audio journal… I wanted to share books I had read, news stories I had found, and stuff like that… I wanted to share just how interesting and beautiful the religion is, without all of the drama and distractions. Also, I wanted something where I could look back on it later down the road and see how far I’ve progressed.
Somehow, things slowly shifted, though. I started giving my opinion and even advice on things, as more people asked questions or as I ran out of things to share.
I’m not a priest or anything… There’s a lot I still don’t know. And a lot I still mix up or forget.
With that in mind, I’ve decided it’s a good time to take a break.
Once I make ocha, and if I have my godparents’ blessing to do so, I’ll pick this podcast up again and see if I can get a bit closer to my original goal.
Thanks to everyone who has helped me so far and I hope to see you all after ocha!
