Life Is for Pleasure
The goal here is not to get more pleasure OUT of life—but to step so deeply INTO life that you realize that you are awake and aflame with pleasure even in the midst of pain. Your heart gets ripped apart over and over again—outrageous pleasure does not occlude pain—but rather wakes us into the pleasure of being—what’s been called the “aroused feminine waters”—of divine pleasure. This is when you so deeply step into the pleasure of being—you are literally making love with life.
The Highest Pleasure
The highest pleasure is to know that through my own transformation I transform the world.
To Live an Awakened Life
To live an awakened life means to live every moment knowing that reality is always 50/50 and that my very next step determines the whole story.
It is our turn
There is not only a covenant between God and the children of Israel but also a covenant between the children of Israel and their children and their children… a covenant between the generations. Israel are ‘those who wrestle with God.’ That is us. Every generation is responsible for the evolution of consciousness. It is our turn now.
From Pre-Tragic to Post-Tragic
What causes the emergence of the post-tragic level of consciousness is always the deepening into what we might call emotional maturity or wisdom.
A Transformation of Identity
All the value you generate in your life begins with the answer to one great question: Who are you? There is only one accurate answer to this question. You are a Unique Self, an irreducibly unique expression of the love intelligence which is the animating Eros of the universe.
Your Unique Self emerges from both your unique perspective and the quality of intimacy that only you and you alone incarnate in reality. Together these two dimensions of your Unique Self foster your unique insight which births your unique gifts which allow you to address the unique need in your unique circle of intimacy and influence that can only be addressed by you and you alone.
In Awakening to Your Unique Self your entire experience of reality transforms. You understand that your uniqueness is not merely the casual result of cultural, social or psychological conditioning. Rather, all of these factors are but the necessary conditions for the emergence of the personal face of essence that is your Unique Self.
In that realization, grasping becomes purposeful action and resignation becomes activism.
