GIVE TO GOD WHAT BELONGS TO GOD AND CAESAR WHAT BELONGS TO CAESAR
There is no fight or conflict between godliness and being in the world and enjoying all it has to offer. Conflict arises when you confuse both. Some people have a negative attitude to “pleasures of the world”! There are no worldly pleasures.
Man is made for pleasure. In fact, pleasure extreme is your birthright. There is nothing to renounce in the world.
What is it that you brought with yourself to this world that you have to renounce as evil? There is no world other than the one you create! By all means make it a happy world!
God, whoever you conceive him or her to be, is not against pleasure. The capacity to have and enjoy pleasure is a divine gift.
Use it to the maximum. And run away from those les miserable sadomasochists who think misery is worship!
