For what we seek in orgies, at parties… QUOTE — Ernesto Cardenal

For what we seek in orgies, at parties, on journeys, in movie theaters and bars is simply God, who is all the time only to be found within ourselves.

Ernesto Cardenal in
Abide in Love

This is a great quote and I think it is particularly applicable to our times and contemporary society.  At the foundation of our various ways of acting out is a yearning for a divine union or transcendence of the self.  Often, we this acted out in the sexual arena, but what we really seek is intimacy with that which is most authentically self and at the same time utterly beyond what we think of as our everyday identities.
