any religion is confusing, because God wants this God wants that it's hard to please.
Hinduism is the closest Godcult to china yet chinese have nothing to do with Hinduism, same for Mediterranean Godcults, chinese have no problem to refuse.
you say [[I've tried to follow my parents' beliefs but that was not right for me. At one time I tried to accept both Christianity and Chinese beliefs into my life but that got too confusing and I eventually accepted Christianity as my sole religion. ]]
that's the problem right there, a meditationer does not follow the ego to this religion or switch to other religion, but just watch, is enough. your parents certainly did not suggest you to follow other religion, your situation is same as mine , I have both camp in my family, I chose to just watch what they do, I go along with them but not have to "follow" or copy them.
Sort out the issues that troubles you , life is not all about success or loaded with money sometime. some ppl joined the Jews and Xtians thinking they are rich.
I used to have issues with paper burning josstick tosting all that sort of things and I have expressed in this forum ...that it was a waste of money and resource..but right now after watching and meditated upond it for awhile, I find it actually acceptable kind of positive karma, why? because it doesn't cause bad karma and that is good enough in today's world turmoil, it does not involving killing/murdering taking other people's life, it just burn some money , it's not that bad, that's why it can endure, it's same as giving money to the church but most churches had gone bankrupt. and I do attend church regularly. but it's also good to burn some bad karma away. I have friends who are into many sort of religions but none of them serious about it and I think because they are very educated and very smart.
