Some interesting discussion is going on in the comments of the Unhappiness post. As I said yesterday, I've been working through some things from my past and still in the middle of a journey on that.

I really want to tear back everything and go back to the beginning, back to basics. What do I believe? Why do I believe it? Why is my spiritual life so important to me? What do I hope to gain in the living of my life?

Why do people start on a spiritual journey?

Why did you start yours...?


  1. I started because I had done the non-religion thing for a little while and felt like I was losing myself. Apparently I need a ritual practice in my life.

    However, the one I had grown up with wasn't something I believed in, theologically. So I'm learning the ritual practice that goes along with my theological belief system.

    And I'm still not sure whether or not it's right. I guess that's part of the journey, too...

  2. It's all part of the journey! I doubt we'll ever reach a firm conclusion that will be right for us for the rest of our lives.

  3. Probably not!

    I sure could use a good map and compass, though...

  4. Well, I started when things went bad for me... it seemed that everything I did went down the drain or against me, but unlike people here I become more attached to an objective study rather than a spiritual awakening. I was already a born hindu , now I just want to cherry pick my way through stuff.... mostly I think I will just turn atheist, or agnostic. Curious to see people take religion so seriously.I mean they allow it to take control of their lives...whereas it should act as a foundation so that people can go out and conquer the world. Religion should serve man. :D

  5. People certainly do use religion in many different ways in their lives. It functions however people need it to, I think. In this stage of my life I don't follow rules well, so I don't take that part of it, while others do. I agree that religion should be taken and practiced in whatever way benefits one's life and should never diminish it or take away from life!
