You may be happy, but you are not knowledgeable. At least you have not demonstrated that here. Delusional and happy would be nearer the mark.

Good point. God has the potential to replace all false happiness such as addictions, greed, general negative energy.

He is my rightious guide though. To be in denial one must lie to themselves. Something that I am nearly incabable of under his near constant direction and will that I succumb to.

Does it not make sense to you that someone doing what is naturally right with naturally make them happy? Does it make more sense to you that someone who is going along the wrong path and somewhat miserable is really doing the right thing?

If someone was doing what was naturally right they would feel happier. This is somewhat beside the point, but it is true.

It makes sense to me that somebody who is in the midst of a delusion could THINK that they have the answers and that they are doing what is "naturally right" and be happy. Being happy does not mean you understand what is real. Being unhappy does not mean that you don't. That is just part of your delusion.

The fact that I do not lie has little to do with the capacities that I held before now

What's that mean? You used to be an idiot? 'Cause that's how it reads.

No. If someone believes that what they are doing is right, they will feel happier.

The actual "rightness" of the action does not enter the equation.

Unfortunately, 'happiness' and reality do not necessarily correlate.
