The ignorance of clothing.

Three gentlemen from the west along with a translator went to visit an Indian Holy Man to seek guidance.

They had attended such sessions in previous years but on this occasion the Holy Man appeared clad only in a loincloth.

Seeing this the translator suggested that in deference to the Western visitors the Holy Man may like to put on a robe.

The Holy Man reportedly responded;

"The world is full of ignorance and you wish me to add another layer of it?"

As Naturists we have out practical experiences to confirm the truth in this statement. As once we have experienced social nudity we know that clothing is indeed a layer of ignorance!

The largest organ !

The largest organ on the body is your skin and yet we cover most of it with clothing!

Would we limit ourselves to only using 90% of our eyesight or 90% of our hearing when we could use 100%?

Of course not. Yet that is what we do with our bodies. Anyone who has experienced the joy of walking naked across the countryside or along the beach will affirm the experience.

Our senses are turned outward and we engage fully with our environment by feeling the movement of air on our skin, the warmth of the sun and the texture of the grass or the sand underfoot.

Why would we deprive ourselves of these experiences when they are so readily available to us?

I read a comment from Cec Cinder PhD, the naturist writer, the other day where he talks of the hypocrisies of human society where we hold in high esteem the nudes of sculpture and painting enshrining them in museums and galleries and yet a naked body outside these places would be arrested.

Oh that we were so comfortable with our bodies that we used clothing only for protection.
