I like your posts very much..thank you for taking the time to express your views,and opinions.
Why thank you Sheye,
I want to make a point for which earlier I was thinking but refrained due to other considerations. This point about relationships and with this quote of yours in mind.
Not every relationship is about sex either,actually most of the best ones I have aren't (no comments please)...but if its about lifestyle and purpose of life, the questions I've asked myself...(we all have)...since I was a kid.
Sex today is such a highly merchandised commodity in the marketplace. Every time I go to a department store, drug store...et al. At the check out stands the magazines and pulp papers scream...SEX..SEX....SEX!! It just gets so overdone. Give me a break.
One of the most disgusting women I have ever found is this woman in the celebrity red carpet fashion police type... Goodness me...I cannot seem to remember her name...she has a daughter in the same business. They often work together.
Well..nonetheless...what they think is fashionable, attractive, sexy et al..is a far cry from what appeals to me. If Hollywood, Nashville, Motown et al ..are it...it is a disappointment... a let down.
I have no interest in going to Hollywood, Nashville, Motown et al. These are not my gods to follow...and live second hand life. Same with worshiping at the movie screen nor television screen. This is not an altar to me.
These people and merchandisers have cheapened sex and sexuality in order to sell their junk to people who actually believe it will somehow make them better people. It has only made them better consumers. And some to the point that they are consuming each other without even knowing it.
The most valuable commodity two people of sufficient maturity can bring to each other ..is not sex...
It is Peace...not Piece.
Understand now?? Peace is the very very rare thing out here..between two peoples. Children or no children..it is Peace.
Once you know ..you realize how many peoples out here are on a treadmill..and dont have a clue..but they are going around in circles...every Friday, Saturday, Sundays,,,some every night of the week...like Wildlife in its natural habitat. Many of them havent a clue...but they keep going on and on. They never develop the skills to ask what is wrong with the game...like guppies and mollys.
Most males havent a clue...while they worship the gods of sports and television ..running touchdowns like the guppies.
How do we ever expect the males to ever teach this to the females in a relationship.....if they have no knowledge of this, no maturity, and hence no ability to properly lead?? She will be running him..without him even being aware of it.
This is what happens when both peoples improperly worship at the altar of sex and sexuality.
It becomes the only definition of life they have...and to the demise of many.
You are correct..the best relationships are about much more than sex...on the money Sheye.
So much more than sex...
They are about Peace.
