Boundless Love in New York City

Great idea and positive social response when the touch is a simple way and a simple sign of friendship.  Photographer Richard Rinaldi sees the beauty of diversity, connections and closeness.  A photographer's vision.  The imagination in flight, the heart in touch with reality,  wanting to symbolize we are all connected. Some people are upset with Rinaldi's suggested closeness, and strangers kissing can do the opposite of creating sacredness of connection; it can imply that intimacy, while we all hunger for it as Rinaldi and many theologians have said, has very little value by the fact that it can be "given" to everyone. Can we kiss everyone without becoming connected? How deep do you want the connection to be?  Can you undo intimacy?  Are you ready for the level of intimacy you choose?A kiss is a different level of connectedness than a touch.  An embrace has spiritual levels.  We must remember that every touch carries a meaning to the heart.Let us see the beauty in this photo.  Let us consider that we are spiritual beings and levels of intimacy must always be carefully considered for the value and meaning.  It must be considered, because a life without both meaning and value, looses an understanding of the sacredness of intimacy.  I for one find many of his images beautiful and inspiring. Inspiration, according to early christian traditional theology, is one thing that ALWAYS leads to healing.Philosophy and art integrated--which is called theology--is a bit more clear to me when I see this CBS video; that philosophy of early christianity (pre institution) that argued that we seek to be inspired, are all called by the elusive Divine to be inspired, and the video reveals what has always had the potential to inspire humanity towards love and healing...the "right" image (i.e.  here we see  tenderness). Tenderness is a manifestation of the "etherial", normally called the Divine or Transcendence into God's warm presence. ...more

Now and Forever -Yes We Can

Two trees stand next to each other and fused at one branch.  They symbolize human love and unbroken connection.  Is it possible to love forever and to love as "one"?When we despair and think that is not possible to find one partner for this life time, this beautiful and simply movie--that reads like a realistic "Happily Ever After" version of our search for perfect love--shows us that it is possible to find and to choose only one love for life. Even if you struggle, sometimes the love chooses you back despite all odds....more

At your limit with God

The lives we live are often filled with ups and downs. We put our backs against the wall looking for something better.  Sometimes our health is put through so much, our lives through so much, we wonder if there's a point to the cycles. ...more

Noah, the movie

Crashing waves, back-stabbing family, murderous and envious people, this is the stuff movies are made of, more so this is the stuff life is made of. Then there is also the element of screaming back at God and looking for Hope. I think I really liked this movie although it was not your "fast and furious" kind of movie. In Noah we find ourselves in a simple mode of thinking. We are not left on the edge of our seat but left on the edge of understanding our soul. Our soul shows us our desires but in plain sight our desires reveal our soul. ...more
