"if it feels good do it." my response.

“If it feels good, do it”

This phrase stresses that what ever feels good at the moment should be done. Yet, there are many things that can feel good in the moment that don’t feel good later. Let’s take eating for one area. A person can eat something that feels really good, yet the food can cause a problem with being overweight and even maybe problems with an ulcer. So in the moment it is good and in the longer moments can cause problems.

If a person continues to do what is good in the moment without regards for the future the pain and agony can increase disproportionably for the figure. Let’s take an example of dealing with food. A person continues to eat what is good in the moment and then ends up dying from a heart attack. To act in the moment without regard for the future is possibly wasting a portion of someone’s life that could have had a higher quality of life in the present.

In a way, the pleasure in the moment sacrifices the pleasure of the future. This is work in the reverse as well with pain. Some pain might actually be good for someone. Lets take working out, a person runs three miles a even through there is pain as the person stretches the limits of their endurance, the pain for the moment turns into pleasure after the run. As the runner looks back on the run they do not think about the pain but rather the pleasure they now feel in the moment after the pain.

So then is all pleasure for the moment wrong? Not necessarily, one might look to the longer term consequences of the moment to see if the moment might produces more joy or less. There are things that a person might do in the moment that produces memories that one will always cherish. One does something fun in the moment and then later when they think about the act. They feel the residual effects of the good memory. Ie once I went skiing in Taos and had a great time. I had pleasure in the moment, years later I would think about the trip and the memories were by now a glimpse of the actual time but yet still produced good memories. Not to the same degree as the actual but still a good memory of something that happen. Tragic events work this same way. Years later we can still feel the pain of something that happen in our childhood. We find the memories painful but maybe not to the exact degree of when the actual event happened.
