' The pleasure-pain motivation '...


In life nothing can be had without overcoming obstacles.

The obstacles to the clear perception of one's true being
are desire for pleasure and fear of pain.

It is the pleasure-pain
motivation that stands in the way.

The very freedom from all
motivation, the state in which no desire arises is the natural
state.
