It’s beautiful to earn pain

People make all sorts of efforts to find peace and pleasure, but no one tries to earn pain.

~ Guru Granth Sahib

The constitution of the body is such that it is pleasure-seeking — that’s the guiding principle behind bodily actions. Bodily actions include the impulses of the brain. So that which you call as ‘natural’, in a loose language is nothing but pleasure-seeking behavior.
