How has your Religion helped you?

I'm not practing, but found the religion thread fascinating, and consider myself a spiritual person. I'm curious, what are some of the ways in which your religion has helped you- on a practical level, on a spiritual level.

I, too, separate religion and spirituality, finding that they often do not co-exist very well. But the bottom-line best moment for religion in my life was... When life became difficult, painful, and confusing, the Judeo-Christian ten commandments kept me from adding stupidity to my pain.

being raised roman catholic presented me with many ideas within the religion's beliefs that i found to be contradictive. i then learned to not just blindly accept others' points of view and belief systems, but to question the validity and try to see the opposing point of view, too. i gained so much more by questioning my religious "beliefs" than i learned when i just followed the doctrine as it was presented to me. i also found a spirituality that i had not known when i practiced catholicism.

I'm not religious, but I do believe in a Higher Power... I prefer the name "Universe" as I believe every living creature contains some of its energy.

Whatever you want to call "It", it is responsible for helping me get sober. I tried a million times on my own, but wasn't able to. (No, I'm not an AA fanatic, but it did help me).

I'm not a big fan of religion or the concept of god except as a historical phenomenon, so I can't say it has enhanced my life in a spiritual way. However, when I need a reason to pick myself up out of the gutter because the self-love and self-respect are gone, the thought that gets me back on track is "my mom wants better for me, I can't do this to her". I don't worship her though. That would be creepy.

My Opinion

I think being an Agnostic has allowed me accept responsibility for myself and the things that I encounter, instead of putting it on some type of God, I believe we are all presented with choices and the choices that we make determine our outcomes, not a God
