Someone said to me the other day, that when you're in a relationship with someone, it becomes your religion. It mirrors, and somewhat replaces, your relationship with your higher power. Perhaps that's why I haven't had the slightest urge to blog here lately -- although I feel very guilty about it. And I have to admit, I have been noticably absent from the 7th pew on the Mary side of St. Gertrude's church for the last several Sunday masses.
But if that's the case -- that we put all of our spiritual energy into our relationship -- is that just too much for someone to take on? I'm not saying that we elevate our lovers to the status of god/desses or anything like that, but does anyone in a relationship knowingly take on that kind of spiritual responibility? Then again, if love is what we're all here for anyway, wouldn't God/dess want us to be focusing on those key relationships? Afterall, we're not charged with living our lives in the church pews -- but out in the world. We honor our faith in the way we live our lives, and yes, the way we choose to extend love.
So maybe it's a good sign that I've been so in love that I haven't been to church very much. I surely don't feel spiritually depleated. And as far as this blog goes, I'm reminded that I want to push myself to write about more than relgion in a narrow sense, but in a very broad, living-my-daily-life sense, so I'll try to get back on track here, if I indeed have any readers left.
