Life is beautiful! You may not agree with me on your bad days, but when you look around and really open your eyes, you can receive the boundless beauty that surrounds us all the time.

So often nowadays, and in the past, we have been taught that all of the beauty and pleasures of life are unworthy of our spiritual selves. We have been taught to deny our bodies, our pleasures, and our aspirations for abundance, because these things are below anyone on a spiritual path. We have been taught that God can only be found in a building, and that God’s words can only be communicated to us through a trained professional.

What this had done is separate us from the actual beauty of God’s world, and the actual blessings that Source whispers to us all the time. Anything, when taken to an extreme, can be deadly. Even drinking too much water can be bad for us! But we have taken the spiritual aversion to pleasure to the extreme. There are spiritual traditions that view all pleasure as a sin, and believe that people deserve to be punished. This couldn’t be further from the truth of what Life/Source/God wants for you.

You are abundantly, endlessly loved by Source. That which created you, created this world of pleasure and beauty for you. Life is a gift for living. Life might seem like suffering, but it is not for suffering. Life is for joy! Life is for love! Life is for pleasure and beauty to be experienced in the flesh, in the physical world of cause and consequence.

Just imagine for a moment that life is here for your enjoyment. Just imagine for a moment that you are living in an endless wave of love that is flowing like the Colorado River right into your heart. All Source wants for you is for you to enjoy, to overcome your fears that the lower vibrations of life have set into you, and to feel you flourish.

Love is what you are. Magnificence is what you are. You are unified with the absolute perfection of your Creator so how could you possibly be anything less than perfect? Accept your own beauty. Accept the beauty that is all around you in every second of the day.

We are coming into a time when we collectively will no longer accept the old way of thinking about life and pleasure. We see that there is great pleasure in an open heart. There is great pleasure in helping and giving and growing. There is great pleasure in creativity and healing. But there is also great pleasure in sensuality, in chocolate, in music, in relaxation, and in letting go. There is pleasure in luxury and pampering. There is pleasure in letting others love us for who we really are.

Accept the pleasure, and accept the love. Life is beautiful! It is your birthrightYou are worthy of it!
