I hope everyone is doing well, and looking forward to Easter this coming Sunday.
I picked to discuss about “The Art of Courtly Love” this week. As I began to read it, it wasn’t the topic I thought it was going to be. My first impression was I thought it would a nice romantic literature reading, for my definition of romance is all lovey dovey and happiness. But that wasn’t the case, from my viewpoint in reading these pages 9 to 11 it sounded like the author was blaming women when it comes to romance. There was some rules on there like getting enough and proper sleeping, taking care of your body and mindset for the author was explaining throughout the pages that men appear to be weak when it comes to women and romance. They need to eat plenty of food and drink enough fluids.
It was also stated that when sin entered in the world, that life’s span has indeed been shortened and our bodies suffer and work hard for survival. If anyone knows the story of how sin entered the world…it’s when Eve took an apple from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God told them to not eat from that tree only. She took a bite from it, and gave it to Adam where he in turn took a bite also. As the result God kicked them out of the Garden of Eden, and that’s where they had to work hard to survive and experienced sickness and hardship. Adam blamed Eve, and Eve blamed the serpent. Ironically, especially to this day men would always often blame women for mistakes and mishaps.
Strength is a good quality to have, and men take pride in not wanting to fail. Also wisdom doesn’t come easy for to me, it comes from learning experiences and hardship. To me, you can’t have wisdom without that for you got to learn something from somewhere.
