Since I've been cursed with the inability to produce Faith I can't think if answers on my own. I'm not asking "why do people believe in religion". I'm just asking in general why people believe in things like karma, spirits, ghosts, deities, magick, etc.
I am not demanding "proof" or "evidence" or anything like that. I just want to know what it's like to believe in something you feel is true without the need ( really, the shackles ) for proof.
I imagine it's freeing!

I dont look for hope or reason to live through religion but my spirituality is sort of based around not being so small, alone and isolated on earth. For example i lay on the roof and talk into the sky and say everything i wouldn't dare tell anyone else, like there's someone up there. And sometimes i believe i really am talking to the people im thinking of. Also I've worn the same necklace i made for myself when i fell sort of feel in love in January and haven't dared to take it off even though were not really together because i feel like if i do, he won't be with me again even though he never actually was. I feel like im being watched by some upper power but just watched i dont think they have any effect or power on earth just a silent presence.0

The question of what I believe or not is really irrelevant. I lay down in bed, and shit starts happening (err, metaphorically speaking). In addition, I understand why people don't believe (because their personal experience doesn't match mine, everyone will seek evidence to flatter their personal experience, we aren't objective beings).0
