The ugly truth

There is an uncomfortable and dark secret humans harbor. An ugly truth no one will outwardly admit. This truth is also one of the greatest obstacles inhibiting the human spirit. Just calmly reflect on it, and you will discover it is true in some way. Here it is:

The real reason many humans do not completely and joyfully adjust to God’s Will is because, deep in the heart, there is the belief that life will become dull and forced, less fun, stale, and wanting in vitality. Man might profess otherwise, but deep in the soul most are not inwardly convinced that the joys and bliss of compliance with the Divine Ordinance outweighs the pleasures and enjoyments of our current lifestyle. That is why relinquishing this or that habit is such a struggle for humans. Go deeply and search the soul unsparingly, then scales will fall from the eyes.

Ex: “Let your speech by yea or nay”. Man cannot imagine a life without superficial chatter and gossip can be even more exciting. He imagines the hours of conversation with friends about this or that thrilling gossip, the banter over this and that development about various artists and political figures, the ridiculing and teasing of others…and the prospect of giving all that up seems like his life will be humdrum and empty. After all, what will then fill the conversational void with friends? Thus, he either does not comply, or he struggles to. This means, deep in his soul, he does not see or comprehend the possibility that there is MORE joy and bliss in being simple, staying away from gossip, and being grounded only in clear facts instead of hearsay. He might say he is convinced, but in his actions he is not. For man only pursues what he believes will bring him more joy.

This is just one example of many, but the same is true for every human tendency and fault. Man cannot imagine more enjoyment in the Divine Will, but instead sees more fun in his ways, and for that reason he favors his ways and struggles to adjust to God’s Will.

Unless we personally recognize and experience greater joy, enjoyment, bliss, and freedom in the prospect of adjusting to the Divine Will, we can never ever free ourselves completely from human deficiencies.
