From a non-religious point of view, whats the point of sacrificing freedom and excitement for security and stability?

Now non-religious is not anti-spiritual, just not adhering to rigid doctrinal statements. But I will best describe this as a reverse pascals wager.

But I will best describe this as a reverse pascals wager. Say that there really is nothing but the material world of time, space matter and energy, then everything ceases anyways. There would be no inherent point to make sacrifices for stability if we are going to die, and you have everything to lose by having wasted your one life in not living all for the sake of survival. Yet if there is a spiritual dimension, then it would have to be greater than our imagination, and necessarily one united reality, meaning that nothing is truly dangerous, and spirit would want people to be fully alive.

However, with organized religion, they typically impose strict and rigid dogmas and rules people are expected to adhere to, or go to a bad afterlife, whether being reincarnated in undesirable circumstances over and over or this place of endless punishment. I have to say that I cannot believe in Organized religion, as it always attempts to impose a single way of seeing reality that often doesnt perfectly align with personal experiences or scientific findings. So naturally if spirit does exist, and it could very well, then it has to encompass all experience and science in an ineffable way.
