New Goddess - subject close to my heart


Just a quickie as I have just got it - poured a glass of wine and have my tea warming in the oven. Tepid food is always rather grizzly.

Full moon and Mei has reminded me to update you on my new goddess. Eurynome - goddess of ecstasy.

I have felt under a lot of pressure lately but its not going to stop me experiencing ecstasy. Pleasure is something I firmly believe in and it keeps me sane. It keeps anyone sane. Mental health is easy once you have cleared out the crap ... just do enough things that give you a sense of achievement, mastery and pleasure. A sense of self - sensual experience, ecstasy. I always attend to that aspect with all my clients.

I am a hedonistic pleasure junkie because its GOOD for me, for everyone. Who said life had to be tough! Life should be a pleasure not a chore. If you examine indigenous cultures they work for about three days a week - the rest of the time is spent socialising, engaged in spiritual practice or having fun.

Sounds like a recipe for good mental health! So get with the pleasure. Do something you enjoy - something that really hits that pleasure zone. Come join in the ecstasy!

Sounds easy!

But tell me, how do you figure out what you enjoy?

Things that give me a sense of joy and of self. The things that I am drawn too. That provoke well being. The things that my grouchy parent voice says "no you are too busy for that" about. Make the effort to do it and you will be rewarded.

One tip I use is to look at the books I collect, or the films I like. Usually there is a common theme.

When I feel connected to something other than myself - or things that give a feeling of omnipotence. Those are the things that are good for me. No harm is done - just a healthy fullfillment.
