Spirit shares His understanding of timeless wisdom
expressed within the I Ching Hexagram 16 – Pleasure.
The call to “do what you love and love what you do”
has been used as an advertisement to enroll young
people in classes that claim to lead to a successful
career earning a rewarding income working at something
that brings them pleasure.
A call to pleasurable work also expresses the thought
that we’ll do best what we choose to do for self-
satisfaction and not for its dollar value, alone, nor
for social status.
That sounds great, but …
You do not agree?
I do agree.
It isn’t always possible.
We must choose.
That’s what it’s all about.
What’s all about choosing?
Life may be about choosing …
Not may be. It is.
But, sometimes we choose whatever, not for
the most pleasure, but for the least pain.
Is there a difference?
Perhaps not in the final choice, but …
So, we sometimes sacrifice pleasure?
At least short term.
For delayed or postponed satisfaction?
You’re testing me.
