"Take Me To Church" by Hozier

This song plays in my head a lot.  And I mean a lot.  I first listened to this song when I was watching a ballet performance from Sergei Polunin.  I never paid much attention to the song until I watched the performance recently.  It could very well be interpreted as a religious or a spiritual song, but it would be a wrong way to interpret it.  As a matter of fact it is a critique of the Catholic Church and a mix of religion and sexuality.  I wrote this out because I have had obsessions about this song.  I finally realized that there is and will always be a difference between curiosity and just plain obsessive "research".  They look similar but are far from similar.  In fact, one of them is natural; it is especially true for a child to be curious.  The other one is anxiety-driven and in the end produces even more anxiety.  So, I realize that mindfulness involves keeping that differences in mind.
