5 thoughts on “Escapism”

  1. It wasn’t an escape for me, but a new understanding that the mundane IS sacred when approached with a certain attitude. But yeah, I know what you’re saying.

    1. I am glad that it wasn’t – after coming to know some would-be spouses, that was a disturbing trend I kept seeing. If I could split, I’d be in the same bowl as you, but so many aren’t though.

      1. To be honest, I had no human partner at the time Loki came to me, so my experience was easier than that of somebody who was already attached. I had it easy — no partners, no kids, nothing that divided my loyalties and attention. It was as if some part of me had always known I would wind up as a mystic and a monastic, and it was easy to reframe much of my personal life as belonging to my new vocation. I’ve been living as a godspouse and monastic for about a decade now, and I don’t regret the way things are now, as difficult as it’s been sometimes 🙂

      2. Too true, I’ll end up a type of mystic myself before I really think myself capable, and I’m still in awe of that balance, because my own self just, well – can’t work that way. Another reason I refuse to see myself as any ‘wizened one,’ because I couldn’t do it. I solemnly tip my hat to you.
