Would you not prefer to be free?
‘Freedom’ implies that there is nothing which ‘forces’ you.
Nothing which holds you back.
Nothing you have to be afraid of.
‘Freedom’, I think, is not something we can really ‘imagine’.
It is scarce.
When it comes to God, though, this is the only ‘state’ in which he operates.
He’s not into bondage or slavery.
He’s not into bribery either.
He’s into ‘enabling’.
Perhaps the ‘forced-labor’ of religion or culture or civilization works for you.
As far as I’m concerned, I’m very glad that’s not the way I’ve found.
I’ve always believed that it is much more valuable & meaningful if I do or ‘am’ something, because ‘I want to’ and not because ‘I have to’.
