I was raised Christian and had a hard time relating. I grew up around “fanatics”: those who condemned others for believing anything different than what they believed. I also grew up around the “holier than thou” group who would say terrible things about other people and then use scripture to excuse their behavior. I also had a hard time identifying with how masculine the bible is taught among Christian churches and found the “Shaktiman & Shakti” extremely relatable. I truly believe to be a well balanced being you need equal parts masculine and feminine.
This book, The Journey Within by Radhanath Swami, has been extremely eye opening in the greater sense that all religion (for the most part) has one central being who is called by many names and different avatars.
