Agree with much of this, but from going through a journey of sorts with my faith over the past nearly 5 years, I would say that we all have more in common than we don't. We tend to separate ourselves with labels and such, but in truth, we all have beliefs, even non-beliefs, and we all have sets of truths that we follow. Life isn't cut and dry, imo, and faith doesn't suddenly make me feel like everything in life makes sense. For me, my relationship with Jesus is what comforts me and carries me through life, with strength. Is that all in my head? I don't believe so, I finally accept that what I'm feeling is a relationship with God. But, I can't tell you to feel it, I can only share my own experiences, and thoughts about God with you. This is where organized religion takes things off the rails a bit. It can sometimes cause believers to push faith onto others, and I'll never understand that because God doesn't push Himself onto us. At least this is how I see my faith, now.
I think prt of the reason why the other believers try to 'push things onto us' because they try to save us. According to their ideology, I'm going to hell for not believing in the right type of god or not believing at all. So I take their concern for me as a sign of compassion. Don't get me wrong, I would t want to go to hell and would much more prefer the heaven stuff (particularly 72 virgins might be appealing to men - this heaven place seems to have been designed with mostly men in mind, it seems - but not if my wife is coming with me to the same place then I wouldn't want those..).
I also don't understand why god made me that way (not being able to believe) so I'm stuck in a limbo.
Anyway, clearly you derive strength from your faith and that is a great thing. Whether it's true doesn't really matter, as long as it is true for YOU. Everything is in our heads. Even I am in my own head, if that makes sense. There is no 'I'. We imagine one with our brain. Just like we imagine the rest of the reality.
It's best to talk about these things when one is a little bit high :-) (though I don't do drugs but I think I can 'imagine' what it's like, in my head :-)
