Your sexuality is God’s love letter to you. A miracle of biological engineering that could have been devised only by a mind of vast and humorous generosity. A mind that knew the pain and the sense of confinement earthly beings would feel and wanted to make sure you might always have glimpses of heaven.
Jalaja Bonheim author of Aphrodite’s Daughters
“This is a quote that I’ve been saying for years because I’ve experienced it with my own beloved. This is what our sexuality can be for us when it’s linked with love. The promise of heaven, the kingdom, is within us and our sexuality can be a gateway into it. I have grief over seeing how sexuality is deeply confused and shamed. It doesn’t matter if you’re single, or what your sexual orientation is, or whether you have the beloved in life or you’re calling the beloved in, this is about our relationship with our own bodies, with our own hearts, and with our own sense of the divine. We are built for ecstasy and we have forgotten about that. We’ve been told that it’s wrong; it’s shameful. We’ve forgotten that it gives us this glimpse of heaven.”
