Hello. I am a 33 year old female in Canada. I was born into and raised as Catholic but I always knew my beliefs did not fall within that religion. After much research and talking to others, I realized that my beliefs completely align with Sikhism. Maybe I have always been Sikh and only just realized it? It's like it has been calling me for a long time now.... Once when I was in a foreign port in the United States (I am in the Navy) I bought a cd that I heard playing at a local store... it was Singh Kaur and the song was 'Ardas' which at the time I did not realize was prayer. But something about it called to me and I bought the cd. Without knowing what the words meant (this was quite a few years ago now), I used that cd for meditation anyway, and felt something inside me when I listened to it. Now that I know what it means, it has even more power listening to it. I have read much of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib, and I want to learn so much more and live the Sikh life, but I do not even know where to begin. I do not know who locally I can talk to, or how I will be perceived by the local Sikh community, as they are all East Indian descent, and I am a white westerner. I am in Halifax area, NS Canada. I appreciate and thank anyone who can help or guidance anyone can provide.
