You Can Choose To Be Happy Or Be Sad… I guess…

I find religious people, especially the sad, holier-than-thou, types somewhat frustrating…

Their need to be sad and make a religion out of it, is just incredible…

Their need to be right as well is kinda crazy…

I mean why would you choose to be sad?  And then convince yourself that it is GOD that wants that from you!

Really!

How crazy!

And it triggers me because I used to be that sad, religious person…

Talking about how happiness is silliness and rather, a deep joy is what I aim for…

Talking about how I had to suffer for God and sacrifice everything…

Usually doing very little except reading my Bible and praying…

Somehow thinking that that would change anything…

When really, I was hiding…

Hiding from my real call…

Telling myself that this was God’s will…

And ultimately watching time pass by without doing anything except waiting and trying to make myself feel holy…

Which I could not do because obviously I was a sinner…

A horrible, dreadful sinner and that was never going to change…

No matter how much repenting I did…

And unless I stayed sad, then hell would be the end result so sad and broke AND BROKEN, I remained

On went life…

I would read parts of my Bible that talk about life in abundance and I would make it mean some time in the next life…

Because in this life, I needed to suffer…

And when I was Catholic, I was even worse and I was only about 9/10/11 at this point…

And I would read all this pamphlets about the passion of the Christ and I was convinced that the only way to God was through punishment, sacrifice…

I mean, some of the pamphlets talked about flogging one self or cutting one self or some other such punishment to really feel the pain of one’s sins…

I determined, based on the writings of some other sad souls, that sadness was the way to God…

So what, that Jesus’ first miracle was turning water into wine…

So what, that he seemed to go to lots of parties…

Was he really going around spreading the good news of ‘BE SAD AND RECOGNISE THAT YOU ARE SINNERS – ONLY DEPRESSION ALLOWED!’

He could not have been too popular…

I suppose it is possible…

He did get killed in the end, so maybe, it was his message of sadness that did it.

And the horror of this is that some people will read this and actually agree with that…

They will actually think that they need to live a sad, depressing life and then die hoping for a happier eternity…

And the truth is, I get the feeling that if there is a heaven then they will get in there for sure…

And so will I!

And I will get in there despite living a life where I get to do what I want to do…

I get to revel in the love of my Father…

I get to lay down all crazy ideas of scarcity and hardship!

And I still get in there…

Whereas you sad, religious person will get in there and wonder why on earth you made life so hard on yourself!

If it were possible to feel regret in paradise, I think that may be your lot…

This is it…

Most humans have a crazy need to feel guilty and shameful, unloved and punished…

And some humans choose to spread that message of depression to the world and try to guilt everyone into feeling the same way they do and

Other humans feel pretty vulnerable to this because it confirms what they already feel about themselves, thanks to some parent or teacher or horrid friend who convinced them that they were worthless…

And you know what it all reminds me of…

THE THIEF THAT CAME TO STEAL KILL DESTROY, that is what!

And some will even try to make God sound like their craziness…

When actually God is love!

Thankfully, I don’t have to prove anything to you.  I am not a theologian, after all…

I simply get the freedom to decide what version of life I want to live?

And you get the freedom too.

We could argue forever about it but I don’t care to…

Because I have nothing to prove to them religious types…

I just speak to those who are tired, fed up with the chains of religion…

And I invite you to dare to break free of legalistic thinking…

And actually discover Spirit, God, Higher Power, rather than holding onto the opinions of some crazy sad person that sounded like they knew what they were talking about.

If you are the one I am speaking to, you have been feeling a little like there may be something wrong with the things you believe…

You have been struggling to follow all the rules for a long time and the hole in your chest is not getting any better…

They told you that God was the missing piece but this version of ‘god’ is not filling the hole…

And you are kinda getting done with trying and trying to believe…

Trying to make excuses for this ‘god’ of yours…

Honey, I call you to freedom!

Freedom from the religious shackles that bind you!

There is work to be done and all this waiting around is not working…

It is not working at all.

You feel called but you hold back…

It is time to get off your butt, claim happiness, discover God for real – You KNOW, the one that claims to have come so that you may have life and life in its fullness – That God, not this sadistic deity someone somewhere told you about.

You can be free of the nonsense!

But you have to choose…

And of course, you can choose to remain sad.

That would be a pity though…

A real pity!

If you are fed up of the nonsense and looking for a way to do the work you feel called to do without feeling guilty about desiring to make an impact and an income, then we need to talk, you and I.  Pop on over to Rosemarynonnyknight.com/businesscoaching – Fill in the form, follow the instructions and I will be in touch with you.
