God makes us whole.
To be whole is to harmonize body, mind, and spirit.
It is to embrace our sexuality, our mentality, and our heart.
And it is to hold a holistic view of God.
God is One.
God is panentheistic and immanent.
So to develop spirituality no longer requires us to reject the body or sex.
Spirituality is no longer hierarchical with sex and the body at the bottom and the mind and spirit at the top.
Spirituality comes through the heart which in fact is in the middle.
We are to follow moderation which is the middle path.
Passion and pleasure are not excluded.
Our body is not cut off.
Some say that God is a Spirit.
But I say that God has a Spirit but He is more than that.
We have a body and a spirit.
How can God be less than us?
God must be all of this and more.
So when people say that God will make you whole it cannot mean that you become bodyless, quite the contrary, it makes the body, the mind, and the heart well.
