The attraction to finding the "truth" is sometimes overwhelming with me. I've been researching and searching for pieces of the puzzle since my teens. I've also had a few instances in my life where I should have lost my life, but have always escaped without a bruise or scrape.

Yes, good advice there, however I don't believe that most of the posters here are physically simply waiting for some event to occur to motivate them. From the interesting replies it appears that most people here have a good bit of life experience under their belts.
I'd wager that most are of high intelligence and have learned to see life from many angles due to experience. Many I'd wager have been kicked in the face by life and are now wary of the world's promises of happiness and fulfillment which are usually spiritually bereft.

One path veered to the left; the other to the right. They stood a moment, pondering what to do, when suddenly a man in white appeared and gave them instructions.
“Welcome, my friends’, he said. ‘You are approaching your new home and I am here to instruct you as much as is permitted. You notice there are two paths before you: One of them takes you to Heaven, a place more beautiful than you can imagine. The other takes you to Hell, a land full of darkness, despair and wretched individuals. All I can tell you at this point is you are to choose a path, but once you reach your destination you cannot turn back. Once you get to Heaven you will stay there, or once you get to Hell you will stay there. One more word I can say. Do not be frightened, for that reward you get in the end will be that which you deserve. Go forth confident that if you have led a just life, you will reap as you have sowed. You must proceed one at a time and each walk the path alone.
“After saying this the man disappeared. The four were astonished at this somewhat random method of reaching Heaven or Hell...
