The Art of Believing in Energy


Let’s dive into the deep end together. Let’s throw caution to the wind and just experience bliss. Life is bliss.

This week has been incredibly thought-provoking for me. I have had a variety of religious, political and philosophical debates and conversations. My faith is my faith. It is not conventional per se, nor is it overly unconventional. However, when speaking with a devout Christian, I imagine myself at the base of a cross, splayed out in my joyous meditation while emotionally exploring my spiritual connection to a higher power. In other words, I don’t really fit the bill. I am definitely not a traditional Christian, yet I don’t necessarily not believe in God, Jesus, heaven and hell, etc.

If you have ever watched the movie What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams, you have walked into my heaven and visited my version of hell. I have never found a visual display that more accurately represents my own personal take on heaven, hell, and the in between. As for energy within my body, I know that it exists. I feel it and experience it daily, so I never question it. However, when facing someone who cannot fathom the existence of human energy, or sexual energy, I remember that my beliefs are not mainstream.

This makes me laugh. I’m not sure why, but I literally laugh out loud when I imagine how other people perceive my belief system. I would dig even deeper into this particular stream of thoughts, but painting seems to be calling me. I have recently been dabbling in various artistic expressions and today my oil paints arrived! I am thrilled to try a medium of expression that I have never dabbled in before…I may share, I may not…but I give my word that I will feel pleasure as I paint…

As pleasure is rippling through me, and my sensual energy is coursing through every fiber of my being, I will think of you. For it is you who I long for. I want you to feel pleasure, joy, and passion. When you are happy, I am happy. When you feel pleasure, I feel pleasure. When you are content, I am content. When you are deeply satisfied, as am I. My spirit will not fully rest until each of you feels pleasure…deeply profound pleasure that has the capacity for unimaginable transformation.

That’s all she wrote…from my heart to yours, Joy

    Interesting post. What you are feeling and experiencing is I think normal. I’ve been there in that space many times. I believe this time of year brings out a hyperextended expression of others faith, some seem overtly emboldened to share this with everyone. I’ve come to accept my relationship with my faith is that mine alone, just as is my sexuality.
    I don’t wear it as my cross, or as an open gesture for all the world to see. If someone asks, maybe I’ll share, maybe not.
    I hope you share your art work with us. I think that would be awesome.

      Dear Liam,

      Thank you for sharing! I like how you said that your faith like your sexuality are yours alone. The art I was working on was an oil painting that my kitty cat decided to walk across…it is now a smudge of kitty paw prints lol. I hope you continue to be part of the conversation.

      From my heart to yours,
