Will You Give a Little or a Lot?
There are pleasures in life, so take pleasure in them. Let life be as a meal you eat. Smack your lips and enjoy every bite. Why not? Why not take pleasure in life?
You are very good, but you are not above living life with pleasure.
Today, when anyone asks you to do something, say, "With pleasure."
When you ask yourself to do something, say to yourself, "With pleasure! It will be my pleasure. Happy to do it."
If you are given something arduous to do, do it with pleasure. If you have bills to pay, pay them with pleasure. Enjoy paying them. What's the difference to you? You're paying them anyway, so pay them with pleasure. Seal each envelope with love. Why withhold it?
Even when you are too hot or too cold, be too hot or too cold with pleasure. Consider the temperature like texture and be glad there are contrasts.
Take pleasure in the good health you have. Every day take pleasure in it. If you can walk and carry groceries, take pleasure in it. If you use a cane, take pleasure in that too. If you are in a wheelchair, take pleasure in that too. Isn't it better to take pleasure than to not?
Even if your body is ill, be ill with pleasure. Is it not to laugh at, that you who are so powerful have a body that can be laid low? Take pleasure in the itching and scratching. Take pleasure in the illusion of helplessness. Take pleasure in the adventure of bodily woes. And then when you are well again, remember to take pleasure in the beautiful health of your body. Thank God for it.
Take pleasure in youth and take pleasure in age.
If you are a student, take pleasure in it. If you are a teacher, take pleasure in it.
Whatever you do, take pleasure in it.
Whomever you meet, take pleasure in them. Each soul who presents himself to you is there to both teach you and learn from you. Across the board, you are learning and teaching love. Beloveds, what else is there to teach or to learn? Give pleasure.
How much pleasure can you make today? How far can you send it? And how far can you receive it from? What new pleasure awaits you today?
If your life is a shopping cart, fill it with pleasure.
If life is a hat you wear, make it a beautiful hat that you carry high on your head with your shoulders back.
If life is an apple, bite into it, and accrue pleasure.
Whatever life is, make it full of pleasure.
You have a heart in order to bless the universe. Use it then.
Make pleasure on earth the way a child splashes water.
Create pleasure. Be ingenious. Manifest it. Take it. Wrest it from the universe.
Erase unpleasantness from the face of the earth. Wash the universe with cloths of pleasure.
Take pleasure in the privilege of life.
Spend pleasure with all your might. Spend pleasure recklessly for tomorrow there will be more.
The flowers on earth give pleasure. Can you not as well?
What did you think you were on earth for? To amass something? To show how talented or handsome you are? To win a prize?
It doesn't matter what your occupation is. What matters is: who you are and how you do whatever you do.
How much pleasure do you give?
Will you be a distributor of pleasure? Will you be a flagrant spender of it? Will you lasso the world with it? Will you give a little or a lot of it?
