For so many of us living in a place of pain is easier, simply because we know it. We know it well. It gives us comfort, it gives us safety.
When we choose to live with live, with pleasure we step beyond that place. We step into a space of power, of choice, of possibility. We step into a space where nothing is certain beyond this breath. We step into a space where we drop the illusions. We step into a space where we see beyond the veil. We step into a space where we walk hand in hand with Mystery. We step into a space where the Life that brought us into being calls for our unique voice, our dance, our touch, our words, to create itself, to date itself with all life. We step into a space where, with each breath, we choose to live from the heart. We choose to live in intimacy. We choose pleasure, the pleasure, the celebration of Life living through us, with us. We choose to be still to listen in the silence. We choose for the silence, the silence that holds every song, to speak through us. We choose for the darkness, the darkness that holds every light, to shine through us. We choose for the touch, which holds every sensation to experience itself as I lay my hands on your body in worship. We choose this because there comes a time when we can live in no other way. We choose this as we seek ourselves in our lover’s eyes, in our lover’s kiss, in our lover’s breath. We choose this knowing we seek union with The Lover. We choose this as we choose to feel all that is within us. We choose this as we choose to look at each sunrise knowing that our edges soften a little to melt into the day around us. We choose this as we choose to travel deep within at night, to the places where our dreams dwell. We choose this as we choose to look in the face of our desire and walk into the fire we see there. We choose this as we choose to love, to open more, yet more. We choose this, and every day we choose this a little more.
