Ok Cool. I just thought I sounded too preachy in my posts above. And you didn't reply to my posts :-(. So I figured you must be mad at me. Glad that you are not :-)

For me it was hard initially. Because I am a hindu and hind religious rules are extremely strict if you want to be really religious. And there were huge amoutns of conflict between what I believed before and what my religion states is the right way to live. Plus there are lots of blind customs in my religion, and it seemed to not make sense to me at all.

But then I tried to not look at the very controversial things about my religion and jsut try to focus on God and take it as some one who loves you and who you love back, and mostly about someone who gets your desires and wishes fulfilled. And that was my way for a long time. But now in the past 2 yeras, my husband has gotten into an extreme religious cult, and I had to understand lots about it. His thing preaches core extreme religiousness - but then I tried to look for good things from it and whatever is applicable and took that alone and left the rest of it.

And it started out being intellectual for me for a long time - though I tried to beleive in God and believe that HE loves me and all, for many years, I didn't really believe. Even now, there is a part of me that doubts the whole thing very much. But slowly I am coming to more feel it rather than trying to intellectualize it. And I see that I have gained a lot of wisdom now partly becuase of it.
