I don't know what you all think but I am in a tight spot here.
I want to follow the Hindu religion but it would be so hard to do follow it because I could only live by the teachings but I probably never could
follow the religion like a normal member of the said religion. I don't believe I could because I don't live in such a place where Hinduism is
widely accepted so I would have no one to practice it with.
I am finding it more easier to believe in spirituality. With spirituality I could believe in God, and, I would have access to more reading material
on the spirit world that would really help me understand spirituality better. I feel that spirituality is more accessible.
I still want to follow the Hindu religion but there may come a time when I have to decide whether I should do away with religion and just stick to
spirituality because I might not be in a position where I can practice it. I don't go to church or anything so I'd have to just follow the
teachings and that is hard in itself really.
If it comes down to that I don't have enough time to follow a religion should I just stick to spirituality and still hold the beliefs of the said
religion even if I might not be able to practice it? Or-- if I can't practice it at all-- should I just let go of the religion?
I'm not an atheist, it's just, that I find it hard to practice a religion alone. I have the time now to follow religion because I'm in my youth,
I'm 19 years old, but when I'm older I might not have time to.
