What's the difference in accepting pain as a way to increase pleasure versus seeking pleasure? Would that be the same?
We seek pleasure (which supposedly is a bad thing to do too, accordingly) and then we are saying accept pain because we want less of it (same as we seek more pleasurable states, yes?).
I assume this pain is the psychological pain - not physical pain.
What's the practical way to not resist pain or to be able to accept it? If you feel pain, it's because you are resisting. What does it mean to accept it? Do you feel it more or less than when resisting? Practical examples needed.
It all sounds very nice and neat but really how is anybody doing this accepting of pain?
