In every human being's life there comes a time when the big questions pop up. You know the ones: Who or what am I? What is all this about? What is my purpose or the purpose of existence itself? There are so many ways to formulate the questions but they all add up to the same thing for almost all of us: What’s really going on around here?
For some it is inherent in their very being that they should be seekers. For others the task proves too daunting or they have little or no real interest in knowing for what ever reasons; and there are many. Some just follow their birth religion, while others wander from belief to belief looking for the right system for them. Some are happy with faith alone. Some are forced into it all kicking and screaming.
What ever the philosophy, discipline, or religion, everyone will tell you that seeking those answers can be a life long process. So the question is: Where does one begin? Who does one join? Should you join a religion or affiliate with a philosophy? Should you look to one of the Eastern philosophies or Western Judaism, Christianity or Islam? Do you want to be Wicca or a Buddhist? Or should you be an atheist? Many people cherry pick; mix a bunch of ideologies and world views together, take what they like and leave what they don't. Who has the real answers?
