momentary pleasures 
by p. l. easure
alternative title: demons vs. Angels
long and lasting pain
one lasts for a moment; the other (now/again)
one leads to the other, but you’re never sure (which way?)
momentary pleasures are the things we seek (today)
- every, living thing strives to experience one thing, and one thing only… during every, single moment of its life: the experience of pleasure.
- at times, the experience of pleasure is experienced as (even the slightest) movement away from pain.
- there is no doubt that certain (momentary) pleasures can lead to (what feels like) everlasting pain. ((one example: chocolate orgasm > unwanted weight gain))
- but isn’t it possible that a pain-full experience could lead to the desire for something more pleasurable? doesn’t the flu result in the desire to simply be absent of symptoms?
- is it possible that the pain-pleasure cycle is akin to the inspiration-expiration cycle – the union of opposites that (obviously) is the basic necessity for life itself?
- does every, living thing calculate the cost-benefit analysis of the pleasure-pain cycle, and does every, living thing make a calculated choice (in each now moment) that weighs the experience of now pleasure against the potential of (future) pain?
- if so… isn’t every living thing experiencing its highest possible sense of wellness, in every, single, solitary moment? isn’t it possible that every, single, living thing is (relatively speaking) Bliss?
- if the Uni-Verse (One-ness, God, the Absolute, the Is, etc.) is in-deed Love… doesn’t it make sense that Love would experience Her-self by experiencing that which She is not?
- is your most feared enemy, in Reality, your most wanted Angel?
-the beginning :-)
