    Can I ask you a question? I need some guidance or at least an outside opinion.

    Can I ask you a question? It's very personal to me but I need some help, an outside opinion.

  • In your opinion do you think someone could be a good Buddhist even if they are involved in adultery? That question might answer itself I know. I practiced Buddhism many years ago and I feel it calling me again. But I have much hesitation on beginning my practice because I am committing adultery. I am trying to end the affair without hurting her, which seems in possible, but it is taking time. I am trying to be very delicate and aware of her because her cancer that was in remission has come back. I know the last thing she needs is stress from me ending our relationship. My wife is unaware of the relationship. I know I am wrong and I know many people are likely to get hurt and I am trying to correct my mistakes before anyone does get hurt. I need a neutral opinion from someone or at least someone to talk to about this mess I created. I feel like now I need Buddhism more than ever but at the same time I don't want to disrespect Buddhism by my selfish actions.
