Emotional Risk Social Reward
What is the love dividend of your emotional risk social reward quotient? In other works “how many times” are you rewarded with love compared to how many times you take the emotional risk for love? Unconditional love pays a dividend of 100% because the lover is not expecting anything in return. The love is unconditional, there are no conditions. Which actually means there is no emotional risk involved because love will be there. All I have to do is risk my love, and not preconceive the outcome.
Commercial Emotional Risk
Emotional risk is on my mind a lot because I get emails from various Core Energetics practitioners to “Take a Risk” at an expensive higher consciousness workshop. The last such event I was at was promoting women’s voices in withholding sex as a control device. I did a lot of emotional risking there. I learned about the shortage of heterosexual men in Los Angeles. I had the privilege of connecting with young women and I really like that. Now that I have been in recovery for twelve years I am much better at just “being” with women. I don’t expect or need anything from women anymore and therefore our relationship is honest.
It’s Easy When You Are Skinny
Confidence is the key when taking that risk and walking up to that woman. It helps if you look good and/or are really skinny. Here in Southern California a guy can go miles on looks alone. I have the extra added benefit of also being genuinely healthy with a great yoga practice. Emotionally intelligent people are clear, open and honest. If a man is authentic he will stand out in today’s opinion heavy cult of personality.
I am taking an emotional risk by being quieter these days. By being quiet I am finding out more of who I am.
