Isolated Mediation and the Dangers

Isolated meditation is similar to self harm. [Matthew 17:4] A true man of God cannot take the road alone even if it is enjoyable. These men of God will seek Jesus, follow the incarnation of the spirit, and soon select the communal life. In the Kingdom of Heaven there is true joy and in that joy there is love. Moreover love only exist in relationships.

Our love towards God cannot be sent in an isolated or separated action. God’s calling of relationship is to accompany. It is not a road for one, accompanying God is a calling for the ones who follow Jesus. Within our relationships we grow in love and bring joy to each other - it’s just human nature.

It is important to stop the act of committing to our own selfish desires. Instead, like Jesus who loved his disciples, love one another. [John 15:12] Learning to enjoy respecting & committing to those around you is the road in following Jesus. [John 15:11]

In other words, it’s really simple like this. Feeling delighted after watching one’s spouse get elated through caring words or sharing the joy on a brother’s success. Such is the proper reaction for any true Christian. Falling into ecstasy and enjoyment by one alone is an unhealthy delight. The happiness that Jesus is willing to give is the denial accompanied by love.

After all the road to take is to become the very existence of the love. It doesn't matter who is it is one becoming a person who repays love and grace is great deed. There must be no calculation for loving. Our Father repays love with grace, which is greatful. And when one realizes the gratitude, he will learn how to love his enemy. [Matthew 5:45]

God is love. [1 John 4:8] Our Father loves his children disregarding if they are the good or the wicked, he sends them rain and shine. [Matthew 5:45]

True joy comes from the love within. [1 John 1:4, John 15:11]

Alcohol can give an instant burst of pleasure, however it can become an intoxicating drug. Nothing is good when someone is addicted, it is a selfish joy and a pursuit of happiness for a single entity. However, if a man can fight delight & enjoyment from just those around him - then that is the good love we strive to achieve.

Practicing spiritual training for the purposes of only gaining salvation and happiness for oneself is an unhealthy act. [James 1:27] One can stop the love for themselves. Sincere devotion and joy comes when one takes care of the suffering, such as orphans and widows.

To be in Heaven joyfully, one must have loving service.

In the community of Heaven, the greatest joy is to do the labor for their loved ones.

Firstly earn the happiness and life from the relationship with God. Love one’s brothers and sisters, and with them enjoy the labor and services  for that is the Kingdom of Heaven. [Romans 12:1]

Feeling delight through the success of others, inspired by a neighbor's joy is where true happiness comes from. This is the road that Jesus Christ has given us, and for those who follow this truth will be gathered in Heaven.

Heaven is a place where happiness exists for the sake of each other, and  people become servants of one another. In the meantime, Hell can be happiness exists for the sake of oneself.

If the ones who internalize the heavenly life congregates together, a communal life will be formed within. The community’s lifestyle will be left in the land as a part of the Kingdom of Heaven.

The chronicle of those who no longer practice selfish enjoyments is a community. He who  that does not live for himself but supports each other's lives. And that alliance is the Kingdom of Heaven, the flesh and churches of Christ.
