    A sense of understanding/truth and a sense of belonging are the two best I can think of.

    I'm trying to find what fits me..... the religion that mirrors my beliefs. I'm seeking a formal structure that fits me, a community that shares my beliefs, and the understanding of what it all means.

    I guess is my case, since I've stopped seeking my religious path, but still seek other things, I don't seek in matters my religion has already answered, but seek answers to questions my faith doesn't answer, or leaves undefined.
