Some thoughts on the future of nudism:
Nudism will always be a thing: There will always be people who choose to go naked in a non-sexual context.
The reason why is because every person has a body.
There are people who, for one reason or another, from time to time, choose to not put clothes on that body.
Not everyone will live the nudist lifestyle. There are people who, for one reason or another, do not find going naked appealing.
From talking with people on this blog since late November, 2015, I have discovered that a quality that I like about people who live the nudist lifestyle is their love for, and acceptance of, others.
I feel like nudists, living their life implicitly saying “This is me! See me and love me for all that I am!” by choosing to not wear clothes — by choosing to show all of themselves to the world — are the kind of people that the world needs more of, with all its strife and walls — whether physical or ideological — that separate.
The world needs peacemakers — bridge-builders and fence-menders.
I admire people who live the nudist lifestyle because I see in such people an attempt to return to the paradise that was lost — Eden — and, by the lives they live, bring some of that paradise here, to this imperfect world we all live in.
My experience with the nudist community is an example of “Don’t judge what you don’t understand.”
What I mean is this: I myself am not a nudist, and for the longest time the nudist lifestyle seemed strange to me. Then I talked to people who live that lifestyle, and it didn’t seem strange anymore. I understood why people choose to go naked.
I want to end this post with a prayer that I found that expresses the reason why I not only write about nudism, but write in general:
“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.”
The whole prayer:
Thank you for reading.
