This third collection of Naked Poetry was written in Puerto Morelos, Mexico. This third collection of naturist poetry shares the same foundation as the first two volumes; the embracing of a naturist philosophy, meditation and depth psychology. If one dares to see the physical reality of oneself, perhaps an acceptance of the truths that one finds in one’s body, it will give a person the strength and courage to look even deeper, beneath the skin, to come to terms with the authentic self that each of us keeps hidden within. Stripping away clothing is just one step, perhaps the first vital step towards becoming a whole person. Beneath the clothing is just skin, something that all humans share. Yet we hide that basic, natural state as if our natural selves are somehow shameful, perhaps even evil. We cling desperately to clothing with the idea that our clothing defines us. Our identity is placed upon these clothes, which we wear to push others away from the vulnerable and soft center within which lays within each of us; our eternal self, our soul. None of us is able to find soul in things outside of our natural body: not in our clothing, not in our possessions, not in our work or play, not in our rituals and addictions, or in our relationships with others. We can only find our soul by daring to turn our gaze back onto ourselves and into ourselves.
