We often get caught up in talking about some things that interest us, and do not talk about other things that interest us and touch us deeply.
Myself, I find that my spirituality is paradoxically more private than my
sex-life and my body – I find talking about sex far easier than face-to-face talking about spirituality, which for some reason I haven’t fathomed embarrasses me. I also feel a bit odd if someone I hardly know launches into a discussion on spirituality – it embarrasses me far more than if they started peeling off their clothes on the street, because they are revealing something that is far more private than flesh.
That is why electronic communication, other forms of writing, and close
covenmates or close friends known to be Pagan-friendly are all so useful – in these circumstances it is easier to discuss the things that are so very intimate, and indeed wonderful to be able to do so.
