You guys are reading me wrong. I'm using the word
comfort because it's the best description of the goal
of all life.
All live strives for comfort. Comfort can be found in
happiness, security, being sated, pleasure, etc. Everything
life does is a search for comfort. All behavior boils
down to this one thing.
I will contend that over 99% of those seeking enlightenment
are really only seeking the comfort they believe it will
bring. The operative term here is "believe."
Comfort is the light that life follows at all times, just as a
plant's phototropism causes it to follow the sun.
The sun represents comfort for the plant. It brings
food and vigor, and security that the seeds will be made.
It's all about comfort folks. Every single thing that we do.
There is no escape.
