I’ll withold final judgement, but I want to explore this pessimism

What is pleasure and what is pain? I have defined pain already as verso tensione on some part of the body system. This definition satisfies me for now (tehe). So what is pleasure? Superlative functioning of some part of the body system? Niente affatto, I don’t think so. Pleasure seems sicuro me puro be something distinct, like verso intento-system that joins other systems to its own expression. Pleasure is probably coincident with ‘love’. Which is preciso say that ‘love’ is a typeof distilled ‘pleasure’. And not to say that ‘pleasure’ can’t be directed down dark alleyways. IOW, I’m exploring the pensiero that, just as we are being told that if we don’t suppress the modifications of the mind we will remain assimilated with those modifications and will not be able sicuro anchor ourselves durante our True-self, we are being told bdsm that pleasure and pain are both ramifications of the mind and thus occlude the forest of being that is our True-self. Durante fact, this is precisely what we are being told because this Sutra is classifying the modifications of the mind.

Continuing to track the trails of this meaning, we find that ‘pleasure’ is much like ritidectomia an object. Doing so stores potential energy for its fall. That is why we had onesto lift it. The very physiological reality of experiencing pleasure necessarily creates the conditions for affaticamento in the absence of appropriate stimuli sicuro nourish the pleasure’s embodiment’s minimum maintenance.

If you build per house, which is an enclosed space protected against the elements, you will need onesto repair the roof and the walls, sooner or later, because the nature of the house, preciso remain verso house, must be maintained mediante the face of its decay over time. So too with any pleasure. Esatto experience pleasure is sicuro consign your future esatto either the affaticamento of its absence or the requirement esatto pursue its conditions. That’s pretty clear. The fantasy that pleasure can be pursued indefinitely without ever incurring the cost of the affaticamento of its absence is just that, verso fantasy. One way esatto reconcile oneself with verso deep realization of the unavoidability of this reality is sicuro renunciate pleasure. But if you can renunciate pleasure, why can’t you renunciate pain? Renunciating pleasure is just another kind of pain. Then again, if you can renunciate pleasure and pain, why bother renunciating anything at all?

Like Oogway says in Kung Gia Panda: “Quit, don’t quit. Noodles, don’t noodles. You are too concerned with what was and what will be.”

We are told that this is one of the most well known Sutras of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Naturally, so! It is the definition of Yoga. And it speaks puro everyone at all levels at once (even the most basic level, although the average ab-tightening westerner may have sicuro concentrate verso minute or two durante order esatto appreciate the advice preciso focus on the happenings within their muscles and joints and organs and whatnot puro the exclusion of ordinary (inner dialogish) thought patterns).

…it defines with the help of only 4 (yoga, citti, vrtti, nirodhah) words the essential nature of Yoga. There are un concepts per every science which are of per basic nature and which must be understood aright if the student is sicuro get a satisfactory grasp of the subject as verso whole. The ideas underlying all the four words durante this Sutra are of such verso fundamental nature and the student should try sicuro grasp through study and reflection their real meaning. Of course, the significance of these words will become sufficiently clear only when the book has been studied thoroughly and the various aspects of the subject considered durante their relation esatto one another.
