Am Trying to Become More Spiritual
I was raised Roman Catholic, very strictly. I am not a Christian now, nor will I ever embrace that religion again, but I do consider myself extremely spiritual. I took a comparative religion course in college that really opened my eyes. I am trying to find common themes in the major religions of the world as a kind of dogma i can embrace. I have thought about god in some form or another since i was a small child. So much so that sometimes being unable to find the answers i am seeking will send me into a tailspin of depression. Right now i am studying Hinduism and Wicca. I really like both of them. Hinduism gives me the mystical side that i crave, the ways in which i can connect with god. Wicca gives me a really great feminine view of god, that has almost completely been stamped out of my head by the patriarchal nature of christianity. I realize that god is both, but the woman has been demonized in my mind from the teachings of my childhood so much that i need wicca right now to reconnect with the feminine aspect of god, and my own feminine power and worth.
