One should persue pleasure within oneself…

Buddha

( The Buddha // Ananavibhanga Sutta
)
One should know how to define pleasure, and
knowing that, one should persue pleasure within oneself. Quite
secluded from sensual pleasures, secluded from unwholesome states,
a wise one enters upon and abides in the jhanas of meditative
absorption. This is called the bliss of renunciation, the bliss of
seclusion, the bliss of peace, the bliss of enlightenment. I say,
this is the kind of pleasure that should be persued, developed,
cultivated and should not be feared. It is with referrence to this
that it was said : ‘One should know how to define pleasure, and
knowing that, one should persue pleasure within oneself.’ href="http://journal.phong.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Buddha_Wallpaper_1920x1200_by_ALFDCLXVI.png"> class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1176" title="Buddha"
