Our matter-benumbed culture makes a commodity of everything it touches, and it is for us, the individuals enmeshed within it, to work our way back to the sacred nature of ourselves and the rest of the world. That is, the spiritual and the sexual are not necessarily adversaries. At their best, they are mutually reinforcing.
An interesting essay from what is usually a political source, Fred Burks, available online at http://www.WantToKnow.info/inspiration/spiritual_eyes
“The spiritual eyes see beneath all physical matter to the place where everything in the universe is interconnected in a divine cosmic dance. When I see, express, and interact in harmony with the vision of my spiritual eyes, transformation flows and miracles happen.”
