There should be a compulsory subject in schools where kids get to have the opportunity to research different religions and spiritual practices and make a decision for themselves, whilst having a balanced point of view. Too many people I know believe in one thing just because it’s there and that’s what the majority believe in. They either don’t have access to other information, don’t realise that they can question these practices or are just too lazy to go looking for themselves.

How to figure out my beliefs
How I did it: I spent a lot of time reading about religions, myths, and other cultural practices. It helped me come to the conclusion that religion is more about culture and philosophy and less about really connecting with whatever may exist as a larger consciousness. I talked to people about their feelings, and learned about religion and history.
I went to church with some friends, and bible study groups, went to the Mormon Temple in Salt Lake to learn about Mormons, took a class on world religion, and some anthropology classes, as well as a mythology class, and some philosophy classes.
Lessons & tips: Read, use the internet as a learning tool, go to different churches and services, talk to people.
Resources: The internet, books, people.
