depending on the religion go visit the spiritual place e.g church,temple etc
and speak with someone there
Hi there. Why is it you want so badly to believe in something you evidently don't? Do you think maybe religion could help answer some of your problems?
Well your probably not religious then :P
I'm a self defined Christian I suppose, I like the general jist of not being sh1tty to each other and it has some good branding, it really just seems to go pear shaped when other people get involved.
You can't force yourself to believe. It must come to you naturally.
To me, it sounds like you're looking to the idea of religion as a solution to some stuff going off - perhaps how you're feeling or something else. There's no harm in trying to believe, but why live your life around something which you think is false? Even if you agree with the values of the religion. My mum, for example, is a christian but doesn't believe some of the events in the bible are true. She thinks it's a load of rubbish that someone could walk on water and make food out of thin air - but she still believes in God.
Maybe you need to do the same - find a compromise between the religious books and what you believe to be feasible, in order to follow a religion while also being true to yourself.
it's possible to have morals without religion you know
I know what you mean, because I've felt the same. Sometimes you just want something to believe in, it's comforting when times get hard. But you won't get the comfort you seek if you don't truly believe.
When I wanted to be religious, I researched different religions to see which was the best fit for me, and I gave up with it because I just thought how stupid is it that there are so many different takes on religion, different theories that people believe 100%, yet not everyone can be right - so the majority of religious people are believing in an incorrect or inaccurate version of reality.. if there is anything real in it at all.
Just start going to church. Try it out. I didn’t believe in god. I was going to church with people I support in work and I loved attending. I started going myself. And slowly, the more I listened, the more I participated, the more it made sense to me. If you want to do it, then go. There’s no harm in going.
