A little Zen inspiration this morning when it comes to pleasure.
So often we grind out our days, earning a little bit of time to go and experience pleasure. And in that pleasure, we find peace. And so we get them mixed up, not realizing that peace doesn’t actually depend on pleasure. But pleasure does always bring a certain peace.
Give yourself permission to step outside of your “natural habitat,” your physical surroundings, and allow yourself to indulge in something which makes your life’s experience uniquely yours.
No one has to understand why you take pleasure in doing what you love. All that matters is that you permit yourself the peace it brings.
