Joy.One of the duties of man is to cultivate his inner joy.
But many religions have forgotten this precept.
Most temples are dark and cold.
The liturgical music is pompous and sad.
Priests wear black.
Rites celebrating the torture and the martyrs and compete in representations of scenes of cruelty.
As if the torture of their prophets were all signs of authenticity.
The joy of living, is it not the best way to thank God to exist!
And if God exists, why would it be a Being moody, He who gave the sweet song to birds?
Only notable exceptions: the Tao Te-King, a kind of philosophical-religious book, full of metaphysical which proposes to make fun of everything, including himself.
And the Gospels, these hymns sung joyously of the U.S. black community masses and funerals. Laughter is the essence of man. Let us use-by happily.
