For reasons I cannot explain, I looked up the Four Noble Truths. I found this site. Within this brief description is a link for the 8 fold path. I now realize the processes I've used in my seeking the divine mirrors this ancient way of thinking. There is beauty in the simplicity of these things.
I am not saying I am going to run out and become a Buddhist. However, there may be more to explore there.
