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.

No matter what religion you are, God is always there ad will always love you. I think it is great that you are studying two different religions right now. If it gives you a better insight, than go for it. I hope you find what you are looking for. Good Luck
