What I wonder is why do people feel they have to fit into one particular religious category or feel the need to categorize in the first place? I was raised Catholic but over the years have developed my own belief system based on what I feel to be true. A lot of it comes from Catholicism, some from Buddism, some from Wicca. Religion to me represents more a source of comfort than a doctrine and if I find comfort in that my body is a vessel that houses my spirit and when my vessel has ended its course my spirit will return as me, in another life, to get right the things I didn't do well as a person, then that makes death not so scary. I do believe we keep returning as our mission is to keep on until we get it right, then we continually rise to higher levels of spiritual understanding to learn how to truly be kind, gentle, compassionate, and forgiving, because even though we think we are many of us are not. I also believe we should take lessons from trees and ants but that's another thing. Some select Atheism or say they don't believe and that is fine, but I feel that everyone believes in something, whether it's a person, animal, tree, coffee mug, insect, amulet, or Santa. There must be a higher element that allows you to "give it up to" when things become more than your mind can process, otherwise you would go mad.
