You got it right - life is short, live life to the fullest! That's the way to truly win over our past messes and failures. The best way to get back at the horrible past which you can't change is to succeed. And being out of the Family, we have endless opportunities to make changes that really do count. Although we cannot change, ignore or suppress the past, we can process it, move forward and LIVE. The only thing we can come closest to being able to control is ourselves. Being a master of yourself, contrary to Berg, is the key. The J.O.Y. principal was a spiritually incorrect principal and doesn't work. I wrote something about that, it's probably in the archives somewhere.
Yes, we are meant to live full and healthy lives. I can completely relate to your distinguishing between religious and spiritual.
