Nature, interaction with wildlife, moments on stage, music, ... and orgasms. (did I say that !?)

When surrender is shared and simultaneous, euphoria is understatement. After so many years the question often becomes can one ever go back? Any lesser expectation seems not worth the effort.

In an LTR making love not just sex.

In my case, friction.

Orgasm

Beautiful views and beautiful loving.

Not since pre-menopause days. Those swings were actually pretty cool & I miss the "cosmic coming together" that would occur monthly just prior to period.

Playing music, and if memory serves me, sex.

Only once. I was in a car wreck and had a NDE. I died.( I was convinced I did) . At the moment I released my self drom hanging on to consciousness, I was granted a peace I never felt before or after.I was owoke later to ask if I wanted emergency surgery by a doctor. He had to ask three times before I said yes. I heard him the first time but was wanting to get back to where I had that peaceful feeling. Later I learned it was a possible ketomine reaction.

Do the moments preceding sleep count, when the hard edges of the world fade away and the promise of unconsciousness is imminently realized?

Usually drugs. Mushrooms seem to work. 😉

Only a few times in my life have I ever experienced what has been called "flow" 00 a feeling of greatly heightened sensation and awareness. One time was almost 60 years ago driving rhough the empty streets of Miami after a delightful evening.

The second time was in Berlin, Germany, also late at night, with empty streets. I can remember the echo of my own footsteps on the concrete, and the beutifulsounds of a man playing a trumpet nearby, almost as though he are searching for his musical nirvana.

Every morning, after my first sip of coffee!

Yes,almost every day.

I had a wonderful moment on a three-wheeler taxi in New Delhi. No reason. Just overwhelmed with happiness. Similarly, on a felucca on the Nile, in the dead of night, sharing a cigarette with an Egyptian boy who didn't speak English. And I don't smoke. Most recently in the rainforest near Port Douglas, Australia. Alone. Silence, Nature. Never induced by stimulants. Just pure.

Euphoria? I don't know, but transcendence: yes When i hear certain music. When I view certain paintings. The edge of an ocean. Weed. mushrooms, wine.

I have experienced euphoria as a result of purging poisons from my body a couple of times. At least, that's how I characterize it. It was likely a flood of endorphins.

Shopping.

Gym rat endorphins & back in the day where bursting out of my skin on a dance floor. Been awhile. By some coincidence learned that at one point in my life the high was as good and better than coke. I was never a coke head but tried it. It was then inner dialogue "wow, uh, I've felt like this naturally, wonder if my health nut blood could give someone a buzz...
Sometimes I get in these stupidly great moods after taking Chantix, but that's a dopamine manipulator.

Yes. Orgasm. Also a perfect candlelit dinner with a great wine a lover and I savor. Macadamia nuts are a close second equal to morel mushrooms. 69 is divine

Sapphire and Tonic among friends

Bourbon usually does it for me..Microdot use to do it for me...sometimes mescaline..

Speaking pedantically, it's probably your brain releasing small quantities of powerful hormones that help reactions; an example being release of seratonin during orgasms.

dancing with my friends and walking in the woods stoned playing hide and seek with the deer

Gigging before a packed venue with the audience completely engrossed in the music you're putting out. That is a high better than any other high I've ever had.

Masturbation, the only real holiday you get.
