It is NOT "to be free FROM any of them!"

Pain, Pleasure and Enlightenment

An enlightened being does experience pain but does not suffer from it, nor is s/he fearful of it.


Pain

An enlightened being does experience pleasure but s/he is not desiring it.

Pleasure


Of course all this depends on one's definition of the words pleasure and pain, suffering and desire.

For my purposes here, I categorize pain and pleasure as purely physical sensations that can physically befall ANY human being.

Suffering and enjoyment as well as fear and desire I see as mentalized feelings (as distinct from physical sensations) brought about by the dys-functional mental processing of pain and pleasure. This occurs only in human beings who have been made to see life as conditional and/or to be manipulated.

The mind performs a different function in the enlightened being as compared to the workings of the mind in the "not-yet-enlightened".

By the way, I subscribe to the notion that every human being who has not yet done so, is in the process of re-covering or re-cognizing their innate enlightenment.

In the enlightened being the mind plays a serving role, in the not-yet-enlightened being, the mind is the controlling agent.

The controlling mental processing in the not-yet-enlightened human plays a heavy hand in the conditional maneuvering that takes place in a world that is seen by him/her as "to be manipulated".

The serving mind in the enlightened one, registers sense input as data or "givens", that are simply playful ingredients, allowing one to participate in human life as play... divine Lila.

An enlightened being simply experiences life (inclusive of pain or pleasure), s/he does not have any need to dramatize whatever comes with life for the effect of suffering or enjoyment.
