Our bodies are constantly sending us amazing sensations and intriguing ideas. Connecting to pleasure involves connecting to the fullness of the present moment and noticing what is going on both inside and around us.
So, how do you get started? Begin by focusing on the present moment. Take a few deep breaths, relax your body and mind, and tune into what is happening around you. You might notice sounds, tastes, scents, body sensations, feelings, and thoughts in your body. Whatever it is, just observe without judgment.
Next, see if you can find something within that vast array that brings you pleasure. It could be something as simple as the feeling of sun on your skin or the taste of your favorite snack. Focus on it and simply enjoy it. You'll know that it's working if you feel relaxed and at ease, with sensations of pleasure in your body.
As you continue to practice connecting with pleasure, you'll find that you begin to notice and appreciate more and more things that bring you joy. You'll start to see the world around you in a different way, noticing the small details that make life so rich and fulfilling. And as you incorporate more pleasure into your life, you'll find that you feel more playful, more energized, and more alive.
Finally, cultivating an appreciative and beauty-centered perspective of the world can be a transformative experience. When we intentionally seek out and appreciate the beauty around us, we begin to notice and appreciate the small details and moments that make life so rich and meaningful. This perspective can help us shift our focus from the negative aspects of life to the positive, and can help us find joy and inspiration in unexpected places. Whether it's taking a moment to admire a beautiful sunset or noticing the way a leaf dances in the wind, embracing a beauty-centered perspective can help us live more fully and appreciate the wonder of the world around us.
So, go ahead. Allow yourself to fully experience the richness of the present moment and all the joy it has to offer. You deserve it!

George had always been a bit of a bore. He was grumpy and always complaining about something. He didn't know how to play any games and he didn't even know what he liked.
