I Just Knew

I grew up in a Christian home and area, but never trully believed.
Then, I saw a statue of the Buddha Gautama Shakyamuni, and knew that that was what I believed.
I did not understand anything and had no real foundation when I read, and so remained a child for decades until my emotional maturity permitted me to understand more and more.
I can only think it was something from a past life that fit into place at that moment.
