A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Refind God after becoming a Buddhist.

by makeaworld on December 11, 2009   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I guess it all started when I had the freak chance to take photographs of the Dalai Lama in my hometown. One thing lead to another and I became a Buddhist.
A complete 100% convert to the Dharma. I was a loyal and ardent practioner, no questions asked...until I began to miss my notion of God. Things collapsed and now I will begin again.
