Why isn't 'God said so' good enough?
If I accept that God gives me life, then I have a moral obligation to do what He asks.

After quite some time studying the history of the African diaspora and all the religions and philosophies that it has touched upon, I decied for a handful of reasons close to heart that the way of life outlined in the Torah was the proper path to apotheosis (no, I don't believe that Judaism is not for everyone - I believe the opposite).

because G-d told me to.
"Spiritual wants and instincts are as various in the human family as are physical appetites, complexions, and features, and a man is only at his best, morally, when he is equipped with the religious garment whose color and shape and size most nicely accommodate themselves to the spiritual complexion, angularities, and stature of the individual who wears it."

"The despotism of heaven is the one absolutely perfect government. An earthly despotism would be the absolutely perfect earthly government, if the conditions were the same; namely, the despot the perfectest individual of the human race, and his lease of life perpetual. But as a perishable perfect man must die, and leave his despotism in the hands of an imperfect successor, an earthly despotism is not merely a bad form of government, it is the worst form that is possible."

Because I was raised to believe that its what we are supposed to be doing. And even though things confused me at times, I don't have enough of a reason NOT to keep them.

(Some of them I just plain enjoy :) )
God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

I was thinking that keeping mitzvot also brings blessings...Noah, Abraham...it is also written in the law. A "building" of trust.

I don't know. That's why I asked.

I'm also just a yenta and curious.

1.Because my father keeps mitzvos and his father kept mitzvos and there are plenty of smarter people than me keeping mitzvos,and as time goes on i grow up and think for myself and search and understand that there is a G-d,but look around the world and see that no one else really cares about their G-d like the Jews do and learn about it and develop my Emunah in Hashem and learn more and keep mitzvos at the ned based on simple complete emunah even if i dont understand what im doing but i do know that by doing this i will live the best fulfilling life possible in this crazy freaking world.

Depends on how you define/see "keep mitsvot".

If you return money in a wallet, you are "keeping mitsvot". If you respect your mother... if you leave a note on a car you hit..., if you don't go through a red light(a halakha actually from "law of land is [Jewish] law"), if you act kindly toward someone, etc. you "keep mitsvot".

It's impossible not to "keep mitsvot"!

BUT if you see "keep mitsvot" as that 24/7 intense thing that the bearded-Borselano and the streimeled-kitteled do, then I don't "keep mitsvot".

So you have to define/tell us what you mean by "keep mitsvot". For me it's: I do a mitsva; I don't do a mitsva... i.e., I do what I can and move on.

If you mean by "keep mitsvot" daily prayers, tefilin, blessings, kashrut(I'm vegan), tahara(I'm not married), etc.(the ritual aspects), then you have a claustrophopic view of Judaism(or a 1/10th view, if you go by the 10 Commandments, as only one of them is "ritual"[Shabbat])

How is keeping all of God given halacha a "claustrophobic view of Judaism"?
