True Love, for me is the very treasure spoken of in the Parables of the Kingdom, and yet the perpetuation of the Patriarchy and the shame and denial of the body and desires has led to very few actually achieving it. We deny ourselves the very thing we desire the most.
I talk about what True Love is, what it has become, and why.
The Garden of Love
I went to the Garden of Love,
And saw what I never had seen:
A Chapel was built in the midst,
Where I used to play on the green.
And the gates of this Chapel were shut,
And Thou shalt not. writ over the door;
So I turn'd to the Garden of Love,
That so many sweet flowers bore.
And I saw it was filled with graves,
And tomb-stones where flowers should be:
And Priests in black gowns, were walking their rounds,
And binding with briars, my joys & desires.
