Follow Your Bliss
Following your bliss is about making decisions from the heart—and the genitals.
When I am turned on—something or something lights me up—I am aroused on all levels.
I am mentally inspired, emotionally open, and I feel erotically charged.
Joseph Campbell spoke of the idea of “following your bliss.”
He suggested that when you use your deep desire and pleasure as your navigation guide, your life will take unexpected and amazing turns.
If you dare.
I am often asked how I came to do what I do.
When I look back at my life, I can see how I created my own best self-education by choosing to do what I felt like doing, when and where I felt like doing it.
By choosing the next right thing in this very moment.
I pursued the things I was most interested in the time: Method acting in London, surfing in Byron Bay, Australia, moving to Bali with my young son—and all of those events played strategic roles in the development of what I do now as a vocation.
I trusted that which gave me pleasure and got me excited, was important.
Important enough to make life-changing decisions for.
To travel across the globe for.
Because it felt right in the moment.
The path that we take to follow the things and people in life that light us up is the same one that takes us to orgasm.
One of the things Joseph Campbell said when he spoke about this idea was:
“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls.”
It’s a beautiful promise.
Following the path toward life-changing orgasm (as opposed to orgasms that don’t change your life) is the same journey.
How much pleasure can you handle?
How much love can you take?
How vulnerable are you willing to be?
How worthy do you feel you are?
All of these will influence your ability to leap in the moment.
To let go of control, to follow your heart and your orgasm into the wild unknown.
Where it will crush you.
Into a million beautiful pieces, that gently come together again in the wake of love.
Rebuilt into a better and stronger you.
Being blown apart is where it’s at.
And trusting that opening more is the only game in town.
