The foundation of our health lies in the psychological and spiritual realms. One of the ways to assess our health is to look at our relationship with pleasure. Our culture looks at pleasure as a source of financial income. That same culture will also sell anything to have our pain taken away. Pleasure impacts our physical, emotional, mental, heart, and spiritual well-being. Regardless of our lifestyle, if our relationship with pleasure is unhealthy, we are unhealthy.
When our life focuses mainly on more pleasure or less pain, chances are we will be agitated, bored, depressed, or addicted.
The practice of pleasure is a spiritual practice as it requires for us to listen, relax and receive from our whole being. It teaches us to be fully present. From there, pleasure creates alchemy in our system and activates our sense of gratefulness.
When pleasure is experienced from our whole being, we feel harmonious, and we connect to our infinite self. When pleasure is experienced through the mind, we feel tension attachment, agitation, and destruction.
The medicine of pleasure helps us to open our hearts and be unguarded and vulnerable. Are you ready?
