momentary pleasures

momentary pleasures [1]

by p. l. easure
alternative title: demons vs. Angels
momentary pleasures
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 :-)
