I read most of ‘Theology of the Body’ a while ago It gave me a new outlook on marriage and sex that I find very beautiful indeed!
My sister recieved, "How to Find Your Soulmate Without Losing Your Soul’ from a friend recently so I decided to skim through it to see what all the hype was about. I got hooked pretty quickly ^^
Now, there is one quote from the book that concerned me a bit:
“Where do you draw the line when it comes to your thoughts? One rule of thumb is to remember that if the particular action is not moral for you to act upon, then do not allow your mind to linger on the subject. For example, if you are not married, don’t fantasize about marital intimacies. It’s not wrong to desire such intimacy, but you would do well to wait on God, allowing Him at the appropriate time in your life to lift the veil from that mystery.”
Since reading ‘Theology of the Body’, whenever I happen to think about sex, I do so while meditating on it’s meaning and the beauty of it as a part of God’s plan in marriage Is this wrong, too, since I’m not married?
It’s not like I’m thinking about it for the sake of all the…“unmentionable details”…or thinking about it lustfully to get “certain feelings” that should be saved for marriage.
Yes, naturally, it will feel nice to think about sex at all, but, you know what I mean, right?
Thanks in advance
