Breasts Are Great

Breasts Are A Big Deal

This may might not come as a surprise since we are surround by images, movies and real life situations of woman teasing us with their cleavage. Breasts are used to sell beer, cars, clothing, even completely unrelated BORING things like SEO. Breasts are pushed together, breasts are hinted at by tight and/or translucent shirts and breasts almost spill out of the new default swim wear – bikinis.

But that’s not what I am talking about, I don’t mean the idea of breasts or the look or some ideal of what a woman should conform her body to. What I mean is… Breasts are AMAZING in every way. The thought of giving them any less credit is an insult to women as well as their Designer and Creator.

Think about this, when a new human enters the world there are about 1000 things that change for a man and a woman. They could be married, financially prepared, in a stable extended family, educated in knowledge and wisdom AND still be unable to provide exactly what that new human needs to eat – not just every day but every hour.

Yes, that is right, babies dietary needs can change BY THE HOUR. Wow, and you thought feeding yourself was complicated. What about a person who’s communication abilities are limited to sounds that seem extremely similar. This same person needs to eat several times a day and is totally dependent on you for the entire process.

Pretty overwhelming until you consider that breast milk is the perfect food for baby, even if Mama doesn’t have the perfect diet.

Breasts Come Standard

Did I mention that this food is portable AND free?
Oh and I might not have said it but every mother comes equipped to provide this perfect meal.

In fact, breasts not only are the best way to feed baby, they give us a sense of connection to our own humanity. Rich people can’t purchase real breast upgrades and poor people don’t miss out on giving their children the best food possible.

Ok, so perfect food for baby. Check.
Connection to baby for better relationship. Check.
Attraction from husband? Check.

When I see Lee Anne feeding our baby, giving her warmth, time, attention and connection to that sweet little girl..

WOW – hold me back, because I am way turned on.

Now settle down before you click away in disgust, I didn’t write aroused, I wrote turned on because there is somewhere deeper that comes alive with the viewing of my wife’s body giving life to my daughter. It creates an awe at our Creator and makes me want to be connected to her in the deepest ways.

Breasts are great.

Responses… how have you devalued breasts? Do you often find yourself seeing breasts as primarily for attraction? What ways does our culture reinforce the perception of breasts as sexual? Who benefits if breasts are only used to seduce men?

Flawed & Fatal

Humans.

We’re all flawed, and in fact, we’re all fatal.

We’re deadly to our surroundings.
Obviously, as there are ample examples, we are deadly to our environment.
We’re consuming and destroying at an unbelievable pace.

We’re deadly to the people around us with our selfishness.
We’re deadly to them by killing the earth that we need to thrive.
We’re deadly to them by consuming so much that it literally destroys the world we live in.
We’re deadly to them by creating products that kill people.
We’re deadly to them by setting up systems that approve deadly products as healthy, systems that perpetuate destruction and death instead of thriving and bringing to life.
We’re deadly to them by selling consumption as freedom and happiness and having the rest of the world hope for the lie.

There’s this terrific video that I love (go, watch it… right now.)
John Lennon is being interviewed by this kid who snuck into his hotel room. And there’s this line:
“… get nonviolent, and it’s pretty hard because we’re all violent inside. We’re all Hitler inside and we’re all Christ inside. And it’s just trying to work on the good bit of you.”

I thought of it today, because, see..
