Dancing With My Muse

I wrote this post about "Dancing with My Muse" over at Creative Careers Unleashed.

It’s got me thinking about the relationship between pain and pleasure.

I’ve noticed that when I feel the building rush and tingle of sensual pleasure… and push it down, suppress it… then I immediately feel the crush of myalgic pain.

I wonder how much this has to do with being abused as a child.

Was pleasured followed by pain? Were they somehow inextricably linked?

Or, is the repression of fundamentalism that paints any hedonistic feelings as BAD?

I don’t know.

All I do know is that when I breath and let the pleasure flow… the pain goes or doesn’t even come.
