There may be, many paths for the same goal. You get confused because many preachers say many different things. You must choose one path, one road. God is One and He can be realized by Love. Fill your lives with Love and distribute the Love to others, considering that all are sparks of the same divine.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
