The best advice you are ever going to get along these lines was penned ~420 years ago by one William Shakespeare:
To thine own self be true
So long as you are content with your choices around spiritual beliefs (or any other non-provable beliefs), "right" and "wrong" don't really enter into the equation. They can't because there is no objective right or wrong in sprituality. Go with what gives you comfort, period.
