The Risk of Pleasure
There is a great risk in deep pleasure, in allowing ourselves to go to that place.
The place where we become one with another.
The place where we become one with life.
The place where we feel the Divine within us.
And in time, where we live as Divine.
The risk is that we reveal ourselves.
We allow ourselves to be seen.
Not for the small, not for our inhibitions, not for our fears.
Rather for our desire, for our strength, our power, our joy.
The risk is that we become Love, and once we’ve felt that, once it’s awake within us, in our hearts, in every cell of our bodies, how can we not live as Love.
The risk is that we see the play in life, and our eyes open to the illusion.
The risk is that we stop chasing and sit in quiet peace.
The risk is that we soften.
The risk is that we hold on less, and allow life to flow as water through our hands.
The risk is that we’ll laugh, cry, rage at life, and see the play in it.
The risk is that we’ll fall into the sensual present, with less understanding and more knowing.
The risk is that we’ll feel more, deeply, intensely.
The risk is that we’ll listen more to ourselves, to the voice within.
The risk is that we’ll seek stillness.
The risk of deep pleasure is that we’ll let go of so much outside of ourselves that’s come to define us.
The risk is that we’ll seek more pleasure.
The risk is that we’ll live liberated.
The risk is that we’ll desire more and want less.
The risk is that we’ll connect more and separate less.
The risk is that in revealing myself, my desire is to see you.
The risk is that I want to meet you in deeper places.
The risk is that what I do matters less and how I do it matters more.
The risk is that yesterday, and all its stories and beliefs, it’s identity and labels, matters less than the possibility of this moment.
The risk is that I’ll love my body, and see it, all of it, my senses, my skin, my sensation, my feeling, as a pathway to the Divine.
The risk is that I’ll become a discoverer, an explorer, an adventurer, in the wilds of myself.
The risk is that I’ll meet more and more of myself with love.
The risk is that more and more of myself will be in life.
The risk is that I’ll dance more with myself, with you, with life.
The risk is that I’ll desire to meet you in pleasure, which means so many things, so many ways.
The risk is that my heart will be more in life.
The risk is that I will love more, and desire to make love more, in so many ways.
There is great risk in deep pleasure.
Are you ready to jump, to dive, to slide into the delicious waters of possibility?
Erotic Inspiration is a delicious phrase, filled with such possibility.
In all aspects of life.
An Erotic Life is so much more than a sexual and genital expression of that energy.
But that’s what so many of us think about when we heat the term ‘erotic’.
For me, Erotic is an expression of the fullness of life. It’s the body, the mind, the heart.
It’s vitality and creativity.
It’s sensual, as in the experience of all of our senses.
It’s nature, and the world, the elements.
And it’s inner nature. An Erotic Nature is a state of being that looks at life in connection, in awareness and presence.
Inspiration, breathing in.
Erotic Inspiration, creating in the sensual fullness of life.
Erotic Inspiration, feeling into the fullness of life of the body, of sensation, of the heart.
Living a life of spontaneous intimacy, dancing in the moment, dancing with what life offers, the joy and the tears.
Inspiration and gifts are in every moment.
Often in me there are moments of sadness, and in the sadness sometimes comes inspiration to write.
When we live with greater erotic awareness it touches every aspect of our lives.
Sexually, sensually, in work, in relationship.
Erotic is a perception, a state of mind, a state of body.
It’s a greater presence in the body, and in the body in life, in sensation, in feeling.
The awareness of the Erotic in every moment shifts so much within us, in healing, in learning, in growth.
There’s a fullness in the erotic that brings us to what is present rather than lacking.
Which is how we so often look at situations in our lives, what’s not there, what’s missing.
We also look at what’s wrong, rather than what’s possible.
The Erotic shifts us into what’s present, into everything that’s there.
The Erotic dances us into the space of possibility, the space within us, in our bodies and in our hearts.
That’s where our healing lies, that’s where our growth lies.
It’s within us, the Erotic.
Waiting for us to meet it, waiting for us to reach out.
This is where the inspiration is.
And a life of inspiration happens in so many ways.
We often look at that in creative terms, art or writing, music.
And it is that, and it’s all of life.
How we live.
Connecting with everything that’s sensual, that’s alive.
One of the ways inspiration expresses itself in my life is through touch.
And this week it led me to a new massage experience, connecting Heart, Nipples, Breasts, Clitoris.
An experience of energy and pleasure, of healing and release.
All coming together in one experience.
This is a continuous exploration for me, and teaching, sharing it with more people, expands the Erotic Possibility for all of us.
The more we connect with, feel, the Erotic within us.
The more we have experiences like the one I’ve shared, the more inspired we become.
And one expands into the other.
Inspiration expands in all of life.
Our dance expands in all of life.
Possibility expands in all of life.
I have always been able to be inspired by life, by the experiences, the people, what I see, what I hear, what I learn, what I feel.
And having someone in my life after so long inspires me more.
With gratitude to life, to love.
