‘Pain and pleasure
Spur and obstacle
In the quest of One
Pain spurs on
Pleasure deludes;
Bliss eludes’
Some do perceive such
Acceptance of both
Reject none
Awareness of both
Is to transcend both
For they are One

Dear KS,
Lovely poem!
But my objection to the thought in the poem is that accepting and thereby trascending pain and pleasure is all very well; but I am very interested in completely removing from creation itself the maladies of pain and suffering or sorrow and sadness.
Not just going above and beyond them, but FINDING THE SOLUTION TO THE VERY PRINCIPLE OF PAIN - whether by annihilating it from everywhere, or by transforming it to some other positive principle, if it is possible at all...
