There is always pleasure somewhere

This is based on the premise that if you alive then there is always pleasure somewhere in your body. It might not be easy to find and it might be masked by other problems in your experience. For example, my thinking mind has a habit of clamping down and locking on to difficult moments in life (stress) to the extent that nothing else can get a look in. Getting this mind to let go is tremendously arduous and requires a lot of patience, however the process of letting go generally begins with some inkling of pleasure (or freedom) somewhere in the body.

What is this pleasure?

It is the pleasure of being. The breath can find it, perhaps the breath is it. We breathe in, we breathe out, the body likes it, the mind lets go.
