Orgasmic Generosity

Standard

I’m teaching about generosity
a week from tomorrow
so I figure I better learn more
about generosity…
It turns out that performing a generous act
stimulates the same part of your brain
that is stimulated when you:
eat fatty food
orgasm
exercise
do marijuana
drink vodka
learn
and gamble.
The takeaway?
Instead of getting off on
unhealthy food
drugs
alcohol
and gambling,
and instead of looking
to sex or new information
to feel fulfilled,
you can get off on giving,
you can be fulfilled by giving.
Instead of focusing on
your own singular pleasure,
you can derive pleasure
from helping someone else.
And when you help someone else,
the whole world benefits.
