10. Interpreting sexual fantasies isn’t going to solve any of the world’s problems. False.
Consider for a moment some of the biggest relational problems facing society today. Marriages that don’t make it. Families that fall apart. Children who are caught in the middle and grow up with all kinds of emotional baggage as a result. The financial pressures of single parenting. The resulting burdens on our nation’s education and welfare systems. People who suffer in silence, or who look to drugs, alchohol, sex, or anything to numb their pain. The list could go on and on.
There are several possible origins to these difficulties, but often individuals, marriages, and families are breaking down because of unresolved sexual issues. And where do these sexual issues begin? In the human mind. Any sexually charged or relationally destructive words we’ve ever spoken, any commitments we’ve made or broken, any fantasies that we’ve conjured up or managed to control – all of these things flow out of the fascinating human brain.
And like any other bodily organ, the brain’s main quest is to heal itself from any emotional damage it’s experienced in the past.
So won’t you join me on this healing journey into the deepest recesses of the sexual mind by reading The Fantasy Fallacy? Perhaps we’ll discover that our sexual fantasies don’t have to be a big stumbling block that trips us up. They don’t have to send shock waves and painful ripple effects into our families for generations to come. They may actually be more like priceless pearls of wisdom underneath the mounds of mattresses that have been suffocating our society for far too long. And maybe exposing the deeper meaning behind sexual thoughts will remove and redeem these pearls, bringing us the relational peace and rest our minds and marriages long for.
