For a while know, I have been at a loss in the spiritual area. Raised as a christian, but I don't exactly believe all the preaching. I am a morally good person. I just want to find myself spiritually. I was wondering if anyone has felt lost and how they found their way. Any advise or good books that helped them out?
World Religions by Huston Smith was GREAT! I have a whole collection of world religion books, but that was one of my favorites. I would personally recommend doing a lot of personal study of each of the religions in general, and then whichever you seem more inclined to specifically. Its best to be knowledgeable of the history/development/etc of whatever it is you're subscribing to, as well as being a good idea to understand the differences and similarities between the religions of the world - comparative religion is a great idea, and even if you choose one over the others, it can help you to be stronger in what you believe to understand how it fits in with the beliefs of the rest of the world in relation to that. You might want to check out a couple of religious groups here, too - maybe not debate, but there are discussion groups like this that might be helpful...
