Ok, I flunked the cute monk test.  I also flunked the not-so-cute but
somewhat witty monk test.

About six months ago I thought I was on the road to celibacy.  I had begun
to appreciate the stablization of physical and emotional energies that
accompany celibacy and seem to "ease" spiritual growth.  Then, whether
back-sliding or boredom, I put out a call in the astral realm and ended up
conjuring up a fire elemental (well, if he's not completely a fire
elemental, he's possessed by one or at least channeling elemental fire
energy).  Well, eventually I got bored with the excessive fire elemental
sex games, but rekindled my interest in the left-hand path, P.B. Randolph
and the like.  I think I might have to wait for menopause before I can
conquer this one, without just fooling myself.

Just a word from the lower part of the bell this episode of
theos-talk True Confessions......
