Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time,
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rugged old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong.

...Cause I know - A love that will never grow old.

I have to give all the credit to the One Who Is for Engineering all of our Circumstances and helping us stay 'in the moment.'

You may have been MIA around here but you are present and accounted for in my daily prayers, my butterfly..

When I see a flower, I think of SEX.   That is the purpose of these beautiful plants our Creator gave us.  And their design is to attract pollenators.   That is one of the reasons that I don't think SEX is such a Big Deal with the One Who Is.   It's everywhere around us and is one of humanities strongest drives.  These facts take much of the 'guilt' about SEX away for me.

Merci Br. Patrick !


Likewise, I have seen flowers also as a sex symbol, a delightful one !!

To me sex is natural as well as spiritual,
and I wonder why some of the bible(s) parts do not consider that for all humans?
Do you too?


Au revoir,
hugs!

Religious leaders have always used SEX as a guilt trip (notice that I did not say Spiritual Leaders).  Having power over people is not an easy thing to do.  We all tend toward Controlling something or other.  But when that Control is combined with Religion.. POW!  Some people just can't handle it and wind up being 'teachers' or 'leaders' of things that BIND people, not FREEING them.

I know this from experience.  Just because I'm a Benedictine Monk, that makes some people immediately put me on a pedestal.  When I sense that happening, I will do something very human because I'm just the same as everybody else, I just have this wonderful calling.  But that's the same with everyone.

Being on a Pedestal is a nasty thing.  The only way you can go is DOWN.    :laugh:
