Mutual pleasures are not mutually exclusive, but seek each other's company. Bitterness is occasioned by fools who seek exclusivity and unchanging truths which are exclusive in their demands for exclusive commitment and loyalty. No perspective is complete in itself, nor deserving of exclusive commitment. When we seek the one perspective worthy of total and exclusive commitment---we find bitterness instead of pleasure in what we seek. In love God does not seek to label any reality or perspective as good or evil---for such labels are alienative and not in the way of God's sexual spirit. People who seek that which is ultimately good---end up being alienated from all that they perceive as evil--- because they perceive it as imperfect, not ultimately good. Since nothing is created as ultimately good they end life as alienated from all that is not ultimately good. People who seek that which is worthy of exclusive commitment do not accept God's love which is inclusive. Such people do not find God, do not recognize God's presence in sexual relationships, and do not know God. They know not that which they seek---because of their exclusive presuppositions. Their truths tend to be bitter truths---because of their exclusive presuppositions. Their truths tend to be bitter truths---because of the alienative qualities which flow from exclusivity. People who seek exclusive truths keep only elitist friends who become fewer and fewer as they seek the perfect fulfillment of their exclusive presuppositions. In their end---they are alone, rather than in Love. God's sexual spirit is pervasive in the constant renewal of life forms, and the coming to pass of new forms of life. The coming together of diverse beings occasions complementarities which renew. It has been so from the beginnings of the work of God's sexual spirit in the simplest forms of life, and may be so in the most complex forms of life. Those who seek to transcend God's sexual spirit are not likely to experience renewal through their search or lonely journeys of exclusivity. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
