November 29 – A Net of Jewels

The root of frustration which the civilized man feels today lies in the fact that he lives not in the present moment but for the illusory future, the future which is only a creation of brain and therefore a mere inference based on memory, a futile abstraction at best.

It is impossible in life to have the pleasure that is wanted without the pain that is not wanted. They are in fact mutually interdependent and therefore inseparable.
