Pleasure, why not?
I told him that I didn’t believe him. Come on! You say that you can just give yourself pleasure any time? Put yourself into a trance that brings “intense, continuous pleasure”? If you can do that, why aren’t you doing it all the time? Why not right now?
He looked me in the eye, a serious expression on his face. He said:
“Life is beautiful, life is great. Life is everywhere.
Life is pain, life is forgiveness, life is redemption.
Life is ever-changing, life is experiences. But, above all,
life is short. And that is why.”
