We like pleasant meditative
states. There's no problem with the pleasantness of them; it's part of our life
experience. The problem is that we often devote our life energy to the getting,
sustaining, accumulation, and repeating of these pleasant experiences. But, as
we all know, these pleasant experiences don't last, so they don't really have
the capacity to bring us happiness, to bring us completion, to bring us
fulfillment. We're always seeking more—that's samsara, the endless wheel of
becoming, fueled by wanting.
