Where should I look for spiritual guidance?

I have been going through some interesting and confusing states of mind lately and I think I am in desperate need of guidance through this process. I have been meditating for a while and this has brought some sense of peace and hopefully expanded my mind a little. In an attempt to enhance those feelings I started experimenting with certain herbs, which brought incredible new feelings (very similar to what other people have described as a kundalini awakening) but also has me worried that I am clouding my mind. Additionally, I have been reading texts on the subject including some of Castaneda’s work and I envy his acquaintance with a shaman teacher.
At this point I feel like I am stumbling blindly in the dark. l know I am motivated to continue my learning but I am unsure where to look for a guide. I know I am not going to turn to religion (the only exception being Buddhism, which I believe is more of a philosophy). Should I actively seek guidance or let it come to me? Thanks


  1. i usually don’t tell people what to belive in but sense your asking for opinions, i seek out god and my bible, thats the only spiritual guidance i belive in and know.

  2. i have no right to tell you what to believe but i’ve found that, after i became a christian, i felt completely at peace. when you pray and consult God, it has a way of clearing your mind in a way i had never anticipated. it’s as if you can simply hand over all your problems and distractions over to Him and just live life. i don’t know if you’ve ever been a christian, but i’d say it’s worth a try.
