I think I understand you better now.
As another poster said, you come a cross as an arrogant, negative person.
Maybe that is just a facade. I don't know you so...
I also think you are lost with a big part of your history telling you to do one thing, while you feel different, you choose not to act. ( Please
remember that I don't know you and I could be completely wrong )
I think you live by a set of morals from a different time, from people that had and have different feelings about how things are supposed to
be...Morals are set by society and are not a given fact. They change.
I do think it's great you have been helping people for the last 35 years.
IMO that is not a waste of time.
Will you regret your choice ? Yes probably, but what if isn't any good. You live in the present. Now is the time to make an effort and enjoy it.
I know for sure that after your death in some sort of afterlife, where they tell you 'Fool, this was your only shot to experience life.' Then
will regret you hold back. You say a result can be spiritual pain ? Why ? How ? Everything you are and what you think and even feel has been a result
of your past. There is absolutely no way to know the best way to live. What I do know is that love is something good, therefore I think it is wrong to
deny people love, only because the find it somewhere else.
Please forgive me for any false assumption. I intend well and I'm on a role.
I still do not agree with you on the choice and emotion issue. I think you can understand that I feel different. My experience tells me that any
emotion is a result and I know for sure,the result is not always because of personal thinking, it does get influenced by your past. You simply act as
you have learned from the people around you and your experience.
I also know that when you deny yourself to deny your feelings that it will become stressful.

This is the sad thing about the human race. No matter how spiritual you say you are, or how religious you are, there always seems to be enough room
for a bit of hate!
IMO this is because hate is part of being human.
