Love and the Porn Star

Love and the Porn Star

I was watching televison recently with a friend of mine and the show we were watching had a segment about a porn actress who had a ten year old son. My friend asked me what I thought about what she did for a living.

“I can’t judge or condemn what’s she’s doing because I don’t know how it fits in with the larger picture of her life,” I told my friend, who was stunned at my answer. She thought that the woman’s self esteem must be low for her to do that sort of work.

That may, or may not, be true, but what is true is that any given moment in a person’s life is a small piece of a much bigger picture that doesn’t make sense except at a level that no human being will ever understand in this life. What doesn’t make sense now will ulitimately make sense during our “life review” [I’ll talk more about this in a later post.]

Every experience in our lives has a purpose – to awaken us spiritually. Personally speaking, I have gone through a number of life events, set backs and disappointments, wondering what the hell they meant, and what the lessons were that I wasn’t learning. Last week, I had a epiphany which brought me back to my roots, and so I’m starting over again, having lifted my vision, attempting to see only love; in awe of a miraculous universe, the souls who communicate with the loved ones they’ve left behind, and the God who wills it to happen.

I’m choosing to see with God’s eyes, exchanging judgment for compassion, towards others and mysef; and seeing a world that is forgiven.
