What Religion should do for you
A friend asked me the other day what should religion do for a person anyway? My answer: spiritual guidance free of guilt. Any religion shoudl first and foremost be about helping you to become a better person. Becoming a better person is always the first step to spiritual enlightenment. I think the means is not as important as the end result.
The ability to assess your personal faults is the hardest part, but being open-minded enough to do so is an accomplishment in itself. I think fear tactics in this are defeating the purpose, the idea is that you are able to reach these conclusions on your own, because you want to.
Dont misunderstand me here, I am not bashing any religion, I wouldn't do that, it wouldnt be very Wiccan-like. I simply believe that people should pick their religion based upon their individual needs. If your religion isnt helping you to achieve your goals, maybe it isnt the right one for you.
Explore, learn about other religions, if nothing else, it helps to understand other people better. Who knows? You might stumble upon your calling. Good luck and Goddess Bless. )0(
