Misery Loves Company

Why do you suppose that so many religions teach that you MUST believe this or that OR ELSE!?

It's sad to me that within just about every religion are people who are so adamant about their beliefs that they don't think others deserve to exist unless they agree.

So many proselytizers speak out of both sides of their mouth. On one side, they proclaim that God is love and out of the other side spew judgment and damnation.

Could it be that somewhere on the subconscious level they are thinking, "These miserable beliefs are true, and if I don't get to have fun and enjoy life...if I have to be miserable, I want everyone else in the same boat."

It must compound misery to see others living a joyful and abundant life.

Well, folks, time has proven that you can't anihilate love, joy, peace or any of God's great gifts. Governments and religious organizations have tried to manipulate beliefs and mandate what people are allowed to believe and experience, but over and over love finds a way to break free of such constraints. God is love and God is infinite. God cannot be contained within the confines of any one religion or set of tenets. God certainly cannot be manipulated by governments or religions.

Man may be able to place certain restrictions on outward behavior but your inner world is yours to direct. God is in your inner world and no one can touch that unless you allow them to.

It's like vampire lore. They can't come in unless you invite them. :-)

Why not put up a "no vacancy" sign and refuse to let in anyone or anything that compromises your experience of a loving, joyful, blissful, ecstatic, passionate life?
