The Pleasure Story

Until you can be with life as it is without needing it pleasurable, a pleasure story disguised as truth will continue its control and unfortunately so will the suffering of reaching for the next pleasure…

If a story is being used to make up what truth is, I guarantee you it’s not truth, it’s only a story that’s providing pleasure.
