I don't really have a label for myself, but if someone asked me about my religion, I usually just say that I am an atheist. I tend to look more at the science perspective of things and I am especially fascinated by a psychological perspective of the world rather than religious. My family are all Sikh and when I tell people that I am an atheist or don't have a religion, I get a lot of criticism for my lifestyle choice. However, I can't help what I personally don't believe.

Spiritual is possibly the best way to describe it.

I believe in God.  Experimented with going to Church for a while, but it just didn't feel right.

It helps because I feel comforted, knowing I'm not alone.  I feel protected and safe.  I pray daily.

I'm a Christian Druid Henotheist. I believe in the teachings of Christ and I believe in reverence for the earth and taking care of it. I also believe, as a henotheist, that my personal worship belongs to the Christian God, but that other deities exist and that worshiping them is also a valid way of religion and spirituality.

I feel most at peace in nature and that's because I believe it's sacred. It just sets my mind at ease and helps me to focus and the only time where I feel like I'm able to live a happy peaceful life.

I really don't think or know that I can just conform into a religion. I do thing there's greater things out there but in the end I don't know if it's anything specifically as to what's been taught. I would like there to be something that has a greater purpose and when seeing people who believe just that they seem to look at life in a much better light. Even if it's just the feeling.
