My heart says this is the right path for me.

Spiritual but not religious, new age and omnist
I have in many years been on a spiritual journey. I have been very unsure about which religion I do believe in. But now I have found my faith and religion. My heart says this is the right path for me. I'm sure I made the right choice. I identify as spiritual but not religious and omnist.

Ominists do not believe one spesific religion (for example Christianity or hinduism is 100% literaly true.). if that was the case then it is not logical.

Omnist is the belief that no religion is the only truth, but that truth is found within them all. How is that possible?

It is possible because of this:

A popular analogy purporting to illustrate the truth of religious pluralism tells of four blind men who discover an elephant.
Since the men have never encountered an elephant, they grope about, seeking to understand and describe this new phenomenon.
One grasps the trunk and concludes it is a snake.
Another explores one of the elephant's legs and describes it as a tree. A third finds the elephant's tail and announces that it is a rope.
And the fourth blind man, after discovering the elephant's side, concludes that it is, after all, a wall.
Each, in his blindness, is describing the same thing: an elephant. Yet each describes the same thing in a radically different way.

According to religious pluralists or ominsts, this is analogous to the different religions of the world: They are describing the same thing in radically different ways. Thus one should conclude that no individual religion has the whole truth, but truth is found in them all and that all should be viewed as essentially equally valid.
If God is infinite and we are finite it is reasonable to believe that none of us can fully capture His nature.

And because of this:

What the religions share of belief:

Belief in a higher power/God, be kind to your neigbour, forgiverness, kindness, morality laws, prophets or holy souls of God, prayers to God, Heaven/hell/reincarnation, that the most important is to serve God and loving each other

I also believe God is universal. God is beyond religion. God has no spesific religion. And I believe strongly in reincarnation

I am happy for you. :)

This is a good, clear definition of Omnism.

This is very well said. What you say resonates with me as a certain kind of Hindu.

God bless you, Starlight.

That looks like a praiseworthy path to me. I haven't been around much lately, so I didn't see until now.

To comment further on what I said @Starlight, I don't believe everything that you believe, but I don't care about that. You independently investigated, which is an important Baha'i principle, and I fully accept your decision, and I also believe this will be good for you.

In our religion we says our mother is greatest because she gave birth to us. And yeah all the religion teach and kindness and sympathy and forgiveness. One of our god says before turning into religion first ask why. Why this religion is good why this and how. After getting all your answer then believe it.as for me I have my own religion but I respect other religion and believe them. I wish all the people do same because nowadays people are fighting a lot over religion I wish it to stop and creat peace between ourselves and religion.
