Dr. Carol S. Pearson believes the secret to true happiness is to crack the “Eros Code.” The Eros Code is, in her belief, the soul’s erotic GPS, and by fine learning to understand the difference between a feeling to learn from and a feeling to act on, we can find not only what we truly desire, but what can truly satisfy and fulfill us.
- Too often in our world today the term “erotic” is connected more with porn than with achieving the deeper fulfillment evoked by poetic lines.
- Our love lives provide us with eros 101 training through the pain we experience when Mr.-or-Ms.-not-yet-right dumps us, disappoints us terribly, or even becomes abusive.
- However, a well-honed erotic GPS system is precisely what helps us make soul-satisfying choices about what to study, what field to go into, what job to take, and how to achieve a balanced and happy life.
“To the degree that we let eros lead, we are heroes and heroines of an archetypal love story. The more we notice when eros has gotten us in trouble, the easier it becomes to avoid heartache by recognizing what is simply a feeling to be noted and learned from rather than acted upon.”
