Spiritual Community is the Important Social Model

Spiritual Community is Much More Important Than Any So-Called Gay Community

Too much reliance on other people for validation can be problematic. I am living in a totally gay city called Palm Springs and it gets to be emotionally flat. The spiritual community down here in the desert pales by my Los Angeles standards. Right now I am living a life of yoga, meditation and contemplation. I am having a holy epiphany right here right now writing these divinely inspired words: I am making a spiritual community right here right now just God and myself. I am an alternative spiritual community of one.  I have created a life where my only social scene is old gay men and it is so boring and not fulfilling. Gay life is no longer satisfying. I need a new life and I need a new community.

Spiritual Community in Los Angeles

Once I get back to LA in a year or so it will be like returning to my lover. Los Angeles has spiritual community like no other. LA has gay and everything else. Palm Springs only has gay.

First I think I will go to New England this summer. I have never been to Boston and I want to go there. I want to feel all of America as my community like I did nine years ago in Chicago, Antietam, and DC.

Sitting here on May Day 2016 I am really torn by the fact that there is a nude gay pool party on a few miles from me where there will be human beings that I know and can connect with. I am human and I need to be loved. I am a social animal who needs to see and be seen. I don’t feel that good today, I have a slight sinus cold from the desert wind and my eyelid is a little swollen from the wind blowing dirt into my eyeball.
