What I am realizing is this: It’s not so much pleasure itself than I distrust. It is my response to pleasure wherein lies the suspicion. I am afraid I will be lost in it ………… Hmmmm …………. What or Who is “I”? I = my ego, which is what “I” consists of in Western culture?? I = my inherent Buddha-nature, which I want so much to believe in & to manifest???
Anyway, here’s a pic of a relationship that gives me great pleasure, & in which both definitions of “I” are only enhanced.
