When a person attempts to control others through the use of upset and vitriolic behavior, the inference is usually present that one person in the exchange is always guilty of causing the upset. By admitting guilt or by acquiescing, the upset is turned off and the balance in the relationship restored. The upset ceases almost miraculously, until the next time. This Book suggests that upset is not an effective method for obtaining what one wants.

Excerpt
A MISCONCEPTION
A person who heard about OPTION casually rejected it out of hand.
He said he couldn't subscribe to a program that said you were to like any and everything.
He couldn't conceive of being happy all the time.
As though by so doing, he would not be allowed to dislike his favorite aches and pains anymore.
It's a common misconception about OPTION that it removes your sense of discrimination.
That it puts you on a bland diet of vanilla and candy-canes and lollipops.
The inference being that only a child or an immature adult could be happy when you are supposed to be unhappy.
The truth is OPTION dictates nothing.
It compels nothing.
It has no imperatives, other than those already in nature.
It is based on the reality that all person, regardless of age, creed or color, are naturally free.
And since they are free, and since happiness is what we all claim to want most, why not choose it over unhappiness.
Why does unhappiness have so much going for it?
If it does, why are so many of us complaining about unhappiness all the time.
OPTION has no by-laws, no uniforms and no code of conduct.
It knows that we are all different.
It affirms that we all have our own likes and dislikes.
It states that we like what we like and we don't like what we don't like.
But even if we dislike something or someone, OPTION asks why we have to be unhappy on top of it all?
I can prefer basketball to hockey without going into a sulk about my choice.
The choice, says OPTION, is not between good and evil.
It is not between what one must do and what one may do.
It isn't even between the powers of heaven and the powers of hell.
The choice we all have is between one good and another good.
It's up to use to use our God-given talents to decide for ourselves which good is better for us in a given circumstance.
We take responsibility for our choices in OPTION.
We don't evade.
We don't blame.
We want what we want.
We don't want what we don't want.
But we never have to become unhappy about any of our choices.
Unless we really believe that there is something that necessitates our being unhappy.
And then we confront the belief that says that is so.
And we take it or leave it.
OPTION is that simple.
For it is but an attitude.

Reader Reviews for "We Are Called To Freedom - Use It Or Lose It!:Being a series of reflections on happiness"

Reviewed by fare good 4/28/2002
Blessings be upon you my brother in spirit, the humbling heart, the loving spirit, the temple of great thought, mercy and kindness, the connection of God's great love, the balance of the heavens an earth, that set forth man kind. Conversions of the spoken words of God, that gives the cleasing of the soul. The father of Gods spoken words, the battle between Good and Evil, atonement of spiritual growth, international circle of life, bathing spirits in the garden of eden, come forth in love, jealousy and hate the seventh deadly sin, to satans rejoyce, words written by God shall not be erase. bestored upon fruitful words, baptizing the soul, all that come not in the name of God, shall be forfited great love beyond God's grace. Freedom is the release of thy spirit to the holy grounds of Gods gate, Slavery is the mind that set forths harm and seperation, of one's own destruction and disgrace to ones on self, All that live upon the earth shall, leave the form of flesh, and the stronger force of the spirit shall return to it proper place.

Man has no powers upon the earth, the body is just a tool for Gods message to be delivered upon the earth, Man take no glory in the sanctuary of Gods temples and church.
