Going Beyond Pain & Pleasure to Enlightenment

Going Beyond Pain & Pleasure to Enlightenment
May 28th, 2015

What if I were to tell you that one of the secrets to becoming enlightened was to move beyond reaction to pain or pleasure?  That it was an act of finding the balance between both and no longer being pulled by one or the other?

This is something I have started to suspect for a while now in my own experiences and meditations.  I have noticed that whenever I experience a great deal of pleasure, joy, excitement and end up receiving a lot, the universe seeks balance by then sending me the opposite.  It isn't because I have been bad, or have been undeserving I feel.  I have been very privileged in my life experiences in the realms of joy and pleasure.  Conversely I have also found that I have experienced a good amount of physical, mental, and emotional pain as well.

This leads me to another question.  Why are we so obsessed with always wanting to feel good?  When we are having a good experience I believe feeling good is completely appropriate.  But when we end up seeking good, as if the feeling or thoughts of good were a drug, we end up creating a cycle that wraps back around to a space of suffering.  And I don't know anyone who enjoys suffering.
