naked as we are
I agree with the guy who says it is in reference to how we are naked when we are born, hence naked as we came. But to delve deeper I think this song is a relaly beautiful love song whose message is the songwriter knows he will be with this person forever. Lines like "one will spread our ashes around the yard", and "one of us will die inside these arms" are his affirmation that even though yes, one of them has to die, they will do so in the others arms. I think its a beautiful use of tragedy (the death of a love one) to allude to love (being together 'till the end being most Americans idea of true love).
"our ashes", although only one is gone describes their oneness in life and death. "eyes wide open", nothing to hide, nothing to fear, no embarrassment or pretense in the situation of dying with their lover. "naked as we came", as bare, pure, and unadulterated as a new born babe, is their live for each other. "one of us will die inside these arms", full knowledge and confidence of their unending togetherness and love.
A nugget of wisdom that Warren Buffett has passed along more than once to Berkshire Hathaway investors is this: "You only find out who is swimming naked when the tide goes out. " What the oracular Omahan seems to have meant by this is that you don't really know or appreciate the risks that companies are taking until they are tested by adverse conditions--a corollary to the saying that everyone looks like a genius in a bull market. Buffett used the line a year ago, for example, in reference to the follies of large financial institutions exposed by falling home prices.
While the tide-going-out phenomenon clearly applies to companies, it is relevant to personal finances as well. In a booming market and a booming economy, we don't have to worry so much about our debt, our obligations and our expenses and our safety net. We don't have to worry so much about where that last penny goes, because there are a lot more pennies and dollars on the way. But when times get tough, we discover out that we are the ones swimming naked: Gosh, I guess I shouldn't have tilted my portfolio so much toward stocks. You know, I'm spending a lot of money each month on my health club membership, and I hardly ever go. And, hmm, is that all the cash I have on hand? I guess I'm living closer to the edge than I thought.
Onsens (hot springs) are ubiquitous in Japan and an important part of culture. The act of getting naked and soaking in the bath with others is a means of communication. In Japanese it's called Hadaka no tsukiai (Communication in the nude). With Hadaka no tsukiai, to soak with others in your in-group is to freely expose everything and communicate the "naked truth." Naked, we are all the same regardless of rank. In theory at least, this kind of exposure leads to better, more honest communication.
Being nakedBeing naked involves stripping away all that is unnecessary to get at the essence of your message. The naked presenter approaches the presentation task embracing the ideas of simplicity, clarity, honesty, integrity, and passion. She presents with a certain freshness. The ideas may or may not be radical, earth shattering, or new. But there is a "newness" and freshness to her approach and to her content. And if she uses slideware, her slides fit well with her talk and are harmonious with her message. The slides are in synch, and are simple and beautifully designed, yet never steal the show or rise above serving a strong but simple supportive role.
Presenting 100% naked may not be appropriate for every case, but stripping down as much as we can often will make a huge, refreshing difference. The result will be a presentation that is different and somehow more real, "real" like a frank conversation among friends. In my experience, the higher up the management chain you go, the less real the talk. People at the highest level of management do not often present naked, but I wish they would.

Jesus is good at puzzling us. This text is not really about giving it all away, emptying our pockets, wallets, bank accounts into the offering plate. It has something to do with generosity, though, generosity in the widest sense which includes financial generosity. It is about heart, soul, spirit, about naked spirituality. This is about opening oneself, without layers and pretensions. It is about allowing oneself to be vulnerable. It is about trusting, trusting that as we open the whole of our lives to God, we will discover life at its best. When we are open and vulnerable, our hearts grow, and it is giving from our generous hearts that matters most deeply.
