When was the last time you did something you enjoyed so much, you lost track of time?
When you were in such a pleasurable state, hours went by and you didn’t even notice?
How was the rest of your day after that experience?
How did you treat others? Your family?
In my experience, I tend to be much happier, kinder, and more patient after these times.
When you are in these pleasurable states, your brain is functioning from the highest level, the mid pre frontal cortex. This enables you to access more creativity, and higher cognitive function.
We can respond vs. react. We can creatively problem solve. We can appreciate and enjoy more.
When we are acting from a place of pain or suffering, the opposite is true. We go into our primal brain function. Reactive. Fearful. Fight or flight. Lashing out.
If the state of the world has you concerned right now, it is more important than ever to pursue pleasure. Your joy. So you can function from a place of creativity.
Also, when you are living in beautiful, pleasurable state of being, you are inspiring others to do the same.
We have mirror neurons that relate to others by observing them, and matching to your own internal reactions and experiences. That’s why for example when you see someone get hit by a Frisbee, you recoil. Or if you see someone laughing, it can become contagious.
This is why, in my humble opionon, pursing your pleasure is one of the best ways to save the world. I’ve said this before and will again, as mother Teresa says, the best way to save the world is to go home and love your family.
How can you do this?
Watch something funny. Listen to music that lights you up. Take action on causes that you are passionate about. Do something for someone else. Volunteer. Praise someone else, write a thank you note. Make love, All these things will help move your brain into a higher functioning plane.
