I am NOT the person to dedicate my spiritual sense of self to any organized religion, but I definitely consider spirituality a part of the human experience. There is something to our lives that cannot be grasped in the physical I think. I love how this quote extends human sexuality into that realm so simply. In essence, the human spirit is SEXY! But what does that mean?

  1. Your blog is one of my favorites because I always get a little food for thought. The human spirit is SEXY! I think this means that as humans we long for depth and authentic experience. When you get to know someone on a spiritual level, depth and authenticity are present. This is the fuel for the flame of intense sexual attraction.
