We all seek pleasure. This is not just something unavoidable, but natural. As human beings, we are “designed” to look for pleasure. But is also a human experience that the pursuit of many pleasures leads us into suffering. The solution to this riddle is not to avoid pleasure, but to develop the discernment to know which pleasures are wholesome and which are not, and the capacity to disengage from the unwholesome ones. We can pursue a kind of pleasure that feels replenishing; a more fundamental happiness we can rest into.
