We are in retreat from ceremonies and rituals. It’s a quiet movement but a necessary one.
The body is utterly innocent. It believes everything the mind thinks. When it becomes a dumping ground for mental negativity, it enters a dread state, and the ceremonies of innocence are lost. Allopathic medicine can suppress the symptoms of this slow poisoning but true healing requires purification of the mind.
According to a recent Canadian study, 79 percent of young men and 84 percent of young women report significant sexual problems, including low levels of satisfaction, low desire, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, an inability to achieve orgasm and injurious pain. The study suggests they are having sex not because they want to but because they think they should.
In “should” is the death of innocence.
Cows vomit their food in order to re-chew it. Men are similarly engaged, are wetly ruminant, when they regret the past.
A moment spent in regret is a moment squandered.
Memories: “The rag and bone shop of the heart.”
