The Common Element

The Common Element

This pain seems unending

Pain doesn’t seem like a stranger

However, pleasure- an acquaintance, a guest

Pain seems real and somewhat palpable


Pleasure doesn’t, rather it feels like it would go away,

And not sustainable

Pain is a mystery like it's beckoning you to search for something,

To pause and reflect


It’s a territory that if entered with a certain willingness, epiphanies happen

Enter it with curiosity, with new-found strength

By accepting it, by embracing it

Because we don't have much choice there, do we?


Pain seems real, pain seems nearer

Pain with a reason is powerful, it's liberating

Have you felt that?


Now

Don’t confuse it with suffering

This is not suffering; this is strength from the pain

Things that are sweeter now, tastes bitter tomorrow


Frustration, stress, regret, feeling of unease and nuances of it,

That we all have experienced, is suffering

More importantly, when you have no direction, you suffer even more

It’s like everybody is shooting at you, and you can’t do much about; losing control


Pursuing deliberate pain NOW

Transforms into peace and intensely gratifying later on

We must have a cause

Pleasure is just an illusion


Conscious pain is the path to greatness

We all make sacrifices here, that’s inevitable

Either you go for greatness or you settle for what it is

That’s ours to choose.
