Sounds like you are more connected with your path than you think you are!!! Actually, it's amazing how some people have a spiritual connection when they are young. I know when I was 16 (30 yrs. ago)
I was very interested in Taoism. I eventually didn't pay attention to my heart and went and did alot of other things. Anyway, I'm glad to hear you quote Santideva. The bodhisattva path is a major part of my practice. I'm preparing to formally take my monastic vows in the next couple of weeks, and the bodhisattva path is the focus of my vows, study and practice. You sound like you have truly found your direction in buddhism since the practice, too, will eventually adjust to western culture without losing it's basis and teachings. Just as it did when it went from India to China to , on and on......
Good luck and enjoy the "journey",
