Baptism won't bite you, i don't think your baptism will be angry if you live your life.

Take that as a blessing, and it will works as a blessing.

Why bring division ? It has been done out of love for you, the priest certainly did it with sincerity. It's not a curse. You have not been dommed. You did not enter a satanic church. Relax.

Now you go on with your life, and you believe what you want. You are free. The chains are in your mind. You believe you are bound but you are free. Decide to be free and that's it. No matter what anyone may say.

Regarding preferences: colors.

This is not about rejecting christianism, i do respect them, i'm just not following them.

This is about what a ritual can imprint a little more deep in mind, particulary when a whole life is lived in a society that reinforces the fundament of that ritual, which in this case is ethernalism.

Main point is then what i'm taking from granted, and then why it is an obstacle. I found myself studying buddhism from a ethernalistic point of view! Hahah

In the Dzogchen Community, some SMS instructors consider you can have Jesus in your Guru Yoga amongst your gurus. :meditate:

In what Guru Yoga would that be?

Ok. But i don't consider him -jesus- even important in my life.

However ChNN says "yes, jesus is total enlightwnes being", that might be the reason some Sms instructors say so.
