Can you pass the cute monk test?

What is it about those guys? Just a couple months ago, I went to a Tibetian
gathering where monks danced and sang in ways which are really beyond words.
I felt what seemed like my very soul rising from me and becoming one with
all that was Beauty and Love. And, well, while I was resting in the bliss
of an "alternate reality," I happened to glance around with what can only be
described as human eyes - for they stopped and focused on one of the most
handsome and appealing individuals I had ever seen - who also happened to be
a monk. I felt myself plummenting back to earth due to my bawdy thoughts -
but that fall from grace hardly moved me as my mind kept on wanting to go
places it never, ever should.
It was terrible and thrilling at the same time - and I kept thinking that
the monk could read my mind since that is what "enlightened" people can
sometimes do and, as a result, I was as embarrassed as all get out.
Anyway, due to these types of events in my life, I tend to avoid "spiritual"
huddles - I always leave feeling so. . .so. . .un-something. I hate that.
It's a plot, Annette, a plot. Stay strong.
