God gave us the freedom to choose, fail or succeed.

God gave us the mind to learn, figure, re-figure, and hypothesize, and come to know. God gave us a physical ability to try, retry, experiment, build, rebuild, and change, to improvise, adapt, and overcome. God gave us a universe to play in, play with, live in, change, re-change, alter, re-alter, and learn from, to adapt to, to improvise meanwhile we overcome its limits on us by changing or changing it. And if we live and die short miserable little lives, well, it is not any fault. It would be reality. It is life and life is what the WE, humanity, makes of it. If we all die out on the earth there are always more where we came from for the world is full of life.

And people insist on a heaven!? And a soul!? And miracles!? And divine interventions!? And an after life!? And a new life after all that!? Such [selfish] creatures do not deserve more that what they have. Humanity shall never get more than what humanity itself creates. It is all there for us. It is all there need be. Anything else is presumptuous and fantasy.

If the human object of your lust and, or, or love does not reciprocate and chooses else wise and other than you then you should be happy to “let go and let live” and yield to them their space to be free to exercise their choice. If you are not happy about it you need to get over it and get on with your life: you should GET happy about their exercise of freedom to choose even if their exercise of free will breaks your heart. Be honest with the fact that you cannot know better than they do what they want ... even if you believe you actually do “know better”, as if that even matters. What does matter? They won't be really human without acting freely and won't be really free if they must do what you want. Remember Svengali? He said "I could MAKE you love me ... but then: I would only be making love to myself!" ... he was at least that honest! You are being dishonest if you think another way! And then Svengali refused to exercise his power. He was honest enough to admit his utter impotence in the face of reality! You should be so honest! You should try to be better than a fictional character! You should not just “allow” others to be free to make their choices. You should be HAPPY to let them go on and be free. If you dwell on them you forget yourself: you risk being a slave to your passions and you risk forgetting reality and risk the loss of your own freedom. For “Love is a many-splendored thing!”. ♪♂♀♫♯♫♪♪
