Bodily: (adj) of or concerning the body.
Every piece of contradiction is held in place with a reverence to a little scrap of silliness that we’re frightened to abandon.
So in politics we accept lying because it is the silliness we believe holds the process together.
In entertainment, we talk about the “bottom line,” preaching the notion that the pieces of art we foster must make huge profits–otherwise they are not worthy of production.
Likewise, we lift high the silliness of “blind faith,” when it is our doubt that makes our spiritual experience rich with discovery and hope.
And finally, this certainly is true when we talk about bodily functions.
Everybody craps, pisses, farts, screws, sweats, stinks and has aches and pains.
But rather than finding the great commonality which might remove a lion’s share of foolish bigotry, we whisper about these bodily similarities for fear of offending those who somehow believe that the One who created us would find such talk “nasty.”
I have nothing against appropriate dialogue in given surroundings.
But as long as we are afraid of our bodies, we will generate a cloud of deceit to hide our human essence.
