Recently on a carnival ride, I felt myself settle into the rhythm of the loops up and down, side to side. And after some time, I thought, “Oh that’s enough, they’ll probably stop the ride now.”
The ride continued for a good while longer. I was wrong. Then, I noticed something.
My “enough” wasn’t about boredom.
It was an artifact of my spiritual awakening beginnings when I thought that detachment from worldly pleasures would facilitate spiritual growth.
My “enough” was actually about cutting myself short of pleasure and disconnecting from the present moment of connection with the person I rode with.
Going even further back in my timeline, I probably resonated with this spiritual concept of detaching from worldly pleasures because I witnessed women compromising their pleasure for the sake of others – the children, spouses, friends, etc.
In other words, my frame of reference of what it meant to be a woman was to take in only so much self-interest and there would have to be enough to give others.
I now know that that my most profound spiritual growth is when I let myself go and run through a moment with fullness until it reveals itself as completed. Also, the abundance mentality supersedes all these restraints of finite units we seem to measure everything against.
But that didn’t prevent me from acting like every other human being in a limited resource world on an innocent carnival ride!
Yes this carnival ride was a small example. It could seem insignificant. However, it became a small window to see how I repeat this behavior all over my life.
