If we've made pain, struggle and suffering the source of learning and growth, every time we desire to learn and grow, we call in challenges, difficulties, obstacles and barriers to overcome. What if now is the time to initiate the path of learning and growth through joy and pleasure and through the presence of love, safety and support? For many people I know that is more foreign and uncomfortable than the presence of pain and not having what they want but working to get it. Seeking has been more valuable than having.
What would it be like to receive joy and pleasure now, as the beginning and the starting point for the creation of our lives, rather than a desired ending? The levels and layers of pleasure is vast, and powerful. I wonder how different the world would be if this was a valued path of learning and growth, rather than seen as a break or a distraction from "real life." And I wonder if the pleasure energies were untangled from sex, vacation, food and substances, how else they could show up in our lives, as something that was normal to feel rather than reserved for special occasions. We wouldn't have to leave our work, or avoid responsibilities to seek out pleasure, we can feel it all and continue to carry out the tasks of daily living. It's just about retraining our systems and getting our bodies used to it, being turned on and relaxing rather than being turned on and becoming impulsive or needing to get off. Is now the time for you to choose joy and pleasure as a source of learning and growth? Visit my session page to learn more about what I offer.
