Is your religion the only right religion?

Of course not. To think so, is the height of arrogance. Because everyone is different and has different temperaments, they follow different religions. This is only natural. Not everyone likes the same foods, so each person will be attracted to a different religion, if they are attracted to a religion at all. I celebrate this diversity. I find all religions interesting and find some sustenance in their various teachings. I love Sufi stories, Hindu kirtans (devotional music) and black gospel music. This is ironic since I don’t have a devotional bone in my body. Worship never made sense to me. I am into spiritual development and good works. To me, religion is about becoming a better person. The religion I practice, I chose consciously, because it made the most sense to me. I don’t expect others to feel the same way. We are individuals. May your belief system serve you well.
