Why do I like doing something?
And why do I dislike doing another?
It simply indicates that I have already done it at least once in the past too.
And it either gave me pleasure or else it gave me pain, then.
I welcomed pleasure; but in this welcoming of mine, somehow 'my welcoming' the pleasure went more pronounced than 'pleasure' itself.
(When I kiss a girl for the first time in my life, MY kissing HER lips goes much bigger a thrill for me than the pleasure of kiss in itself!)
I scattered myself in welcoming when I was to sense the pleasure.
How would I be able to sense the pleasure full?
Something would be left lurking in its incompleteness - unfulfilled!
I will feel like fulfilling it as soon as possible.
I will turn greedy for it.
I will keep missing till I don't do so.
This missing is what turns into a liking for me - liking THAT pleasure of MINE.
What if it had given me pain, then?
I would try to avoid pain; and 'my avoiding' the pain would go more pronounced than 'pain' itself.
(When I go out in the scorching sun, MY AVOIDING the sun becomes a bigger trouble for me than the scorching sun itself!)
I scattered myself in avoiding when I was to sense it face to face.
I do not sense it fully.
Hence it keeps scaring me with its fullness.
The war is left half-fought - I escape away from it.
It always keeps scaring me like a sword always lurking over my head!
I will feel like avoiding it as much as possible.
I will turn fearful of it.
I will feel missing till its danger is there.
This missing is what turns into a disliking for me - disliking THAT pain of MINE.
Entertainment means doing something what one likes doing.
Some unfulfilled pleasure!
Why will it get fulfilled this time, then?
No, it won't!
The same old history will be repeated again and I will again come unfulfilled from the doors of pleasure, as starved as ever before.
It just will give me a kick of the thrill that comes from my greed of pleasure, but never from the joy of it.
I will never feel its pleasure full and always keep missing its fullness.
I will turn a slave to my likings and to my pleasures.
I will no more be a free wo/man.
Unless I am free, how can I live my life with my total passion into whatsoever I do?
I live half.
I love half.
I even get my success half too.
Is it possible that my work becomes my pleasure?
Or else my pleasure becomes my work!
It is something like making your lover your spouse.
The moment you do so, love gets lost.
Spouse loves not; spouse possesses you!
Possession and love are two diametrically opposite phenomena.
Same way work and pleasure are opposite to each other too.
Work is duty; pleasure is impulsive.
Work is discipline; pleasure is indiscipline.
Work is boring; pleasure is exciting!
No, the twain shall never meet!
The moment pleasure becomes work, it impinges onto your psyche with the same compulsion that any other work - even the one you hate - does.
That is what the psychological dynamics of work in our society is!
It comes with all the psychological tension in your mind as a burden onto it.
And you keep waiting for the weekend to pamper yourself totally differently from what your pleasure-turned-work has kept you busy all through the taxing week with.
Exactly like your lover-turned-spouse wants to keep you so taxed with her/his possessive demands that as and when s/he gives a short break to you, you immediately take a sigh of relief and freedom along!
And then Thank God It's Friday - the pleasure galore!
I propose changing both the concepts - the work as well as the pleasure, and merging the two in one single whole that is neither work nor entertainment.
Is that possible?
Only when work turns entertainment and not when entertainment turns work!
And not even entertainment, but enjoyment that comes from unconditional involvement in things and actions beyond liking or disliking; and not from conditional indulgence in one's likings only!
Can my action be my joy without ever being my work or my entertainment?
It is certainly going to be total in itself, then; turning me, too, a total human being in the process.
It is only possible when we listen to the voice of our passion only, and not to the voice of our ambition while selecting our career.
And like or dislikes have no role to play when it comes to passion; it simply goes much beyond the both.
When passion is, pleasure has no role to play in life whether on weekends or on any special occasions.
Everyday becomes a Sunday then!
