“We live in a vastness much broader than our imagined limits and this includes our sexual beliefs. When we let go of our ideas of ‘self’, we are not bound to the limits of such an arbitrary ‘self’. That same ‘self’ would have an entirely different set of beliefs about intimate relationships if we grew up in a different culture with a different religion or system. In particular, the question is not what you would do in this or that circumstance, but what will you choose from the thousands of options available. This access to a greater variety of options from which to choose cannot guarantee an outcome that you want, but makes it so that you are not limited to the options that coincide with what you believe about yourself. We do not need to defer to an authority , an institution or a belief to go beyond the limits of our habits and try some new sexual beliefs. We may feel fear, but fear can be imagination ebbing and flowing in the silence. Is it fear based on a real danger or fear of doing something outside of what we have become accustomed?”
Excerpt: The Relevance of Kabir
“Humans are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. Otherwise both will wither and die.”
― B.R. Ambedkar
