Do you realize how much you are addicted to suffering?

pleasure Mar 26, 2021

Have you ever considered how much you actually like not feeling good?

I know it’s a bizarre question, but trust me it’s one worth investigating.

Humans are neurologically wired to focus on the negative, what's not working, what needs to be fixed (google negativity bias.)⁠ In fact, we spend inordinate amounts of time trying to solve problems that don't even exist!⁠⁠

This is partly what it is to be human and have this big ‘ole brain that's designed for SURVIVAL (aka problem solving and scanning for threats) vs THRIVING (aka actually enjoying life).⁠

But this doesn't have to be your reality⁠.

There are very practical strategies you can use to see the good, feel the good and actually let yourself take in the good.⁠

Here's what I mean by taking in the good (or rather what I DON'T mean)...⁠

😱 Do you know someone who is rich but miserable?⁠

😱 Do you know someone who lives in the most beautiful place on earth but doesn't enjoy it?⁠

😱 Do you know someone or are you that someone who has everything but somehow feels meh?⁠

These people haven’t learned the skills to actually take in the good in a very real embodied way.

See while our brain is wired to feel bad, our body is wired to feel good!⁠

The secret to feeling good and getting out of the suffering trap is connecting with your body.

Pleasure teaches us that we can actually feel good even when things feel hard and that we are actually designed for this!

Pleasure doesn't have to be this intimidating faraway thing, there are very practical ways to tune into pleasure in your daily life that can literally change your life!
