Naked Spirit

"We are by nature all as one, all alike, if you see us naked..."

            John Burton

The relationship we have with our bodies is a strange one, shifting precariously between fascination and loathing. We know the body is the seat of life just as the spirit is the spark of life, and yet a great many of us can't fully grasp this.

We need to recognize that the body and the spirit are not separate but parts of the whole self. The only way for this to be possible is through acceptance of who and what we are. If we can't accept our bodies in their totality we can't experience the totality of our being, and we will remain divided and mired in spiritual, emotional and physical conflict. Our nakedness compels us to deal with our nature and the forces which shape us and carry us along through our lives.
