Kahlil Gibran on Clothes

And the weaver said, "Speak to us of Clothes."

And he answered:
Your clothes conceal much of your beauty, yet they hide not the unbeautiful.
And though you seek in garments the freedom of privacy you may find in them a harness and a chain.
Would that you could meet the sun and the wind with more of your skin and less of your raiment,
For the breath of life is in the sunlight and the hand of life is in the wind.
Some of you say, "It is the north wind who has woven the clothes to wear."
But shame was his loom, and the softening of the sinews was his thread.
And when his work was done he laughed in the forest.
Forget not that modesty is for a shield against the eye of the unclean.
And when the unclean shall be no more, what were modesty but a fetter and a fouling of the mind?
And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
~ Kahlil Gribran

For a long time, I took Kahlil literally & thought that we needed to wait until the unclean were purged from the Earth before going naked. It was actually enough for me to have found a place where people are accustomed to the natural, unadorned human form.

I'm glad we don't have to wait until the unclean is purged from the earth, because we would have never been able to live in Christ now. Jesus made us clean and I am taking advantage of that new life.
