I'm a high school student in the U.S. and have recently stopped being a christian and switched to the philosophy of Buddhism. My family expects me to become some brilliant engineer, which I wanted to be.. now I want to leave and pursue my own spiritual path, I want to travel the world and experience it, not stick around to be something I'm not. I don't know how to tell my family because I know they will all be disappointed in me. Any advice?

Does your family have a strong nature / nurture tendency towards achievement in science / engineering ? If YOU really love science, don't throw it ALL away, at least not for ever. We need consciousness engineers too. New advances in brain science / theories seem to be compatible with Buddhist theory. Engineer, within any field, a planet that reduces suffering.
