pleasure

A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on blogs, blogging, pleasure, and work

I think the pleasure of completed work is what makes blogging so popular. You have to believe most bloggers have few if any actual readers. The writers are in it for other reasons. Blogging is like work, but without coworkers thwarting you at every turn. All you get is the pleasure of a completed task.

Scott Raymond Adams (1957 -)

As you learn to leave alone the activity of unconsciously trying to be the mindbody that you think that you are - the mindbody that this "you" is currently flowing through - and you learn to move as this one that you truly are - this "you" of you; the very heart of existence - steadily, consciously and momentarily, the continuity of the ever deepening of this innermost as it keeps on entering its manifestation, through this mindbody that you find yourself flowing through, allows you to simply bubble in the sheer joy, pleasure, peace, delightfulness and stillness that this "you" of you is.

A Quote by David Bohm on thought, mind, pain, pleasure, and conditioning

The pleasure-pain reaction is generally appropriate for the animal, but you can see that for thought it is not.  The criterion for coherent thought is that it is true and correct.  But if you can get pleasure or pain from thought then coherent thought is no longer functioning.  Rather, the criterion has become whether the thought gives pleasure or pain, consequently that thought becomes destructive.  If thought can be determined by pleasure or pain, that's already the beginning of a lot of trouble.  And we conditioned by that.

A Quote by Robin Sharma on pleasure, happy, happiness, and choice

Pleasure is great- but it doesn't last. Pleasure comes from your five senses. From a great meal, a nice glass of wine and a new car. Nothing wrong with these things- they make the experience of life better. But they are fleeeting...

Happiness is the DNA of pleasure. My point is simply this: Pleasure comes from something on the outside. Happiness comes from within. It's a state you create by choice. It's a decision. It's an act of will.

People can be happy while they are going through great pain and adversity. There's no pleasure evident in their external lives yet they are content on the inside. And conversely, tons of people are surrounded by pleasure (fast cars, nice homes, great clothes) but there is no joy within. So choose to be happy.
