In a Nutshell | Pleasure: The Full Pulsation Life

The matter of the human body is essentially a pleasure blocker. But as we grow and evolve, uncovering hidden blocks within ourselves and cleaning them out, we’ll come, more and more, into harmony with those cosmic streamings of energy. Freed from our inhibitions, we’ll be capable of a high degree of pleasure, as the energy of the subtle bodies scoots all the way to the surface of our beings—to our bodies…

Meme_The Pull_FB 8So there’s no real difference between the ultimate state of bliss and our potential to enjoy the pleasure of it. It’s just a matter of degree….But how about our desire to have it? Is this in fact a legitimate thing? Isn’t it, as some people say, in opposition to true spiritual self-realization? Well, no, it’s not. At all. In fact, it’s a prerequisite…

Here’s the bottom line: when we block pleasure, we block our connection to our deep spiritual self. So spiritual self-realization and the capacity for pleasure are linked at the hip. Buy one, we get the other for free. Like salt-and-pepper shakers, they always come as a matching set…

In reality, pleasure is intensely fleshly. It’s also intensely spiritual. Ultimately, there is no gap. We’re all on a cosmic train ride heading to Pleasure Supreme. We don’t need a good-enough token to get on board. Bliss isn’t a reward for being good. It’s the natural state of a unified being. When we’re in harmony within ourselves and therefore with the universe, we’ll automatically be there. Full stop…

This is a bliss that is experienced wholeheartedly in every fiber of our being…Hey folks, this is our birthright we’re talking about. And our longing for it is real and healthy. What’s superfluous is all our confusions and dualistic splits that scatter marbles under our feet, creating misconceptions, fears and shame…

Yes, pleasure is possible on all levels of our personalities…Each one of us is a mini-me of the great cosmic universe. All the same conditions and laws apply to both the macro and the micro being. So if we have a harmonious flow happening inside ourselves, we’re able to allow the greater flow of life to permeate us. It’s as though we’re plugging into the universal circuits of pleasure, health and spiritual healing powers. We’re in the universe and the universe is in us…

But don’t be tricked into thinking that we need our physical bodies to experience pleasurable feelings. It’s just the opposite. Once freed from the block of physical matter, we’ll be able to experience blissful feelings, which arise from our subtle bodies, in an identical but more intense way. In an existence beyond Earth, we will be able to sustain the feelings of ecstasy that we currently experience in sexuality during a total fusion with another person. And yet, if we don’t put our fears and obstructions behind us, our spiritual existence will look a whole lot like the one we’ve got going on here…This flies in the face of many religious teachings that promote denial and sacrifice of pleasure. Such martyrdom is a total miss on what it means to be in truth…

Meme_The Pull_FB 9If we abandon our poor substitutes for pleasure, isn’t it possible that we’ll have no pleasure at all?…In truth, as long as we’re convinced that our substitutes are all the pleasure there is, we’re not able to believe pleasure is for real. Living a decent life implies living a life of sacrifice. Yuck…

But we’ve got this all wrong, because we’ve got our wires crossed. We can take in genuine pleasure only to the degree we give up all the distorted habitual ways we have found to activate our life force—which for many of us is through negative pleasure…In the end, we’re stuck trying to wring the best life possible from our favorite bad habits—our life-destroying patterns…

If there’s no by-product of pleasure, then being mature, self-responsible people who accept reality as it is, is going to be a tough sell. But then, how much fun is it really to insist on being an irresponsible child who makes others pay for our actions or inactions, and who secretly wants to cheat life? The lack of integrity wound up in this is simply never going to feel good…

If we can start to look forward to a full and pleasurable existence, it won’t be so hard to give up some of our destructive patterns. We’ll be able to stand on our own feet and accept life’s unavoidable frustrations. This equation must always come out even. Without an understanding of this basic truth, we’ll continue to hunt for pleasure in an unhealthy way, looking for a reward for the “good child” from some authority we depend on for good feelings…

So what blocks us from pleasure? Because, heck, offhand, we all want pleasure, right? We long for it. We strive for it. Darn right, we want it. What we ignore is the fact that we also don’t want it. We fear the heck out of it. Seriously?…We have to bring our fear of pleasure all the way up to the surface. A key pointer to look for is this waffling between anxious striving and the alternative plunge into hopeless resignation…

No human being is free of this denial of pleasure. So don’t feel like you’re alone…Once we see how we fear and deny pleasure, we’ll stop making others responsible for our feeling deprived. We’re doing it to ourselves.
