So if I belong to a religion of Many Gods.. Would I have to convert to a one God religion to attain oneness??
Can't I worship ALL gods and still be on the right path??

I am confused too My question was what was the path? The direction

If you already believe in all gods... and you think that you do not need to follow any path to oneness... then how? Have you already attained oneness with the Brahman? Isn't attaining oneness a path that needs to be followed... to be strived for... something that is seared into our jeans Then what is that path? Do you now have to add more gods to the current pantheon

Tough on outside ? Eh ? Weak inside ? Perhaps she didn't even try to understand the religion she was born in? Or she gave into missionary onslaught (don't get ideas)?

The answer again is, she is reassuring herself. Forcefully justifying the change she made. She is hammering her mind and soul to agree with the change so as to present to the world "the practical", "the independent", "the bold", "the modern", "the open minded", "the progressive", "the pragmatic", "the novel doxastic outlook". She doesn't know enough to shun the beliefs of her parents and she knows it. She is utterly confused and she is living in denial.

Tell me something.. on the same lines.. Don't we need a guru to guide us?! (By "guru" I mean any enlightened soul.. can be someone from the family as well)
How would a lesser mortal like me attain what's supposed to attained until guided by someone?! Someone needs to show us the path.. right?! The Gods.. unfortunately.. don't really converse with me.. and they have never ever appeared in my dreams either..
HOW??!!!!!!
