I DO believe!
I have been guilty of having a "dark night of the soul", but the higher power, as I understand it, has always shown me there is something out there above me. I have never seen a burning bush, I have never been visited by an angel (that I know of), but I have been personally rewarded for being a good human being; not ever materially, but spiritually.
Because of my above statements I am sure anyone reading can see that I was educated with Judeo-Christian values; to throw in a curveball, I truly believe in a Karmic stream that flows through all sentient beings. So, my belief does not speak from religious dogma, but a true spiritual understanding. As mentioned earlier, I was raised in the Christian church, I believe Christ is my savior, by attempting to live in His light, I have been saved from darkness. I wish to be more like the person in His teachings, so that I may be of some benefit the human race.
If someone else has found similar personal understanding and great compassion for other humans from a completely different religion, then thumbs-up to them.
I cannot explain it better than I have here...
