Through Suffering And Pleasure

laitman_628.3Question: Does nature affect our desires through suffering and pleasure?

Answer: Yes. Nature manages us through suffering and pleasure. We do not react to anything else. Truth and lies are very weak agents of change in a person. Reward and punishment, pain and pleasure, are very strong stimulants.

Question: Do we become more vulnerable the more our desires grow?

Answer: Of course. When a person is more vulnerable, more sensitive, the easier it is to influence him or her.

Question: If we look at the suffering of our ancestors who lived a hundred years ago, their problems were much more serious than ours. For example, epidemics that killed hundreds of millions. Today, a small problem, even just sitting at home, a person perceives as a catastrophe.

Why does nature develop us making us even more vulnerable?

Answer: For us to become more sensitive, to understand more clearly, and feel even nature’s most subtle instruction.

Question: How do you feel about the fact that the world has invented methods that neutralize desires and then a person really suffers less. For example, all Eastern practices are based on that. And they really help: the less you want, the less you suffer.

Answer: But by this, you diminish yourself to the animate, vegetative, or even inanimate level.
