As far as I see it there are only four logically defensible spiritual paths a person may walk.
- Accept yourself as the highest authority and pursue whatever interests you, including perhaps the rejection of all religious thought whatsoever.
- Accept your logic as the highest authority and rigorously study every single religious system in depth to determine which is most likely, plausible, or important.
- Accept your parents or your culture of origin as your highest authority and give yourself completely to their worldview.
- Accept one single authority and follow it relentlessly.
Which one is yours? What is your authority? How do you follow it?
