Or Or


Relations are fraught
Far too wrapped up in ego
Celibacy rules
Or so monks and nuns tell us
Or maybe they’re just cowards

  3. The monastic – a rest from emotional and physical entanglements. But as I said, can’t imagine wanting such a break. We can have a balanced family life along with a deeply spiritual one.
