Although I was baptized Roman Catholic, I was not raised in the religion because of negative experiences my parents had as children within the church. In the past, I have felt very cynical about religion in general. At this moment, I am in a place where I'm at peace with being unsure of labeling any higher power in this existence. Also, I'm not actively looking for any organized religion. I believe there may be a power greater than ourselves, that Jesus was a good man who may have had a higher purpose, and that it is important to love one another.
I believe in the power of nature and the universe as an all-encompassing cyclical being. In these cycles, truth always resides. I also believe in learning as much about many beliefs as possible. I am currently investigating the roots of the Judeo-Christian faiths. I am discovering a need for structure in my spiritual life, but unsure as to where to turn. I desire a religious "program" of sorts in my life. But because I feel I cannot simply believe, I don't know if I will ever "subscribe" to a particular religious way of life.
