Almost every philosophy/religion I’ve seen implies that life is full of pain and suffering, and that we have to toil and agonize in order to achieve an abiding peace.
But what if that isn’t true? What if the pain/suffering is merely a mechanism that cements our understanding of what is personally pleasing on this unexplainable, nonsensical adventure? What if it’s a way of gathering preferences and information in an ever-expanding universe, so we have a direction in which to channel our creativity?
Maybe the real reward is in channeling that creativity, revealed in a flush of purpose and energy. Maybe all we have to do is relax into the present, allowing our greater aspects to flow and spill, joyously uniting us with the rest of existence. Maybe we don’t have to indulge in a transactional slog where we flay ourselves down to a predetermined standard that’s worthy of heaven/enlightenment/awareness.
And maybe it’s all the more valuable because we get to choose if that’s true or false.
