Though love is light it becomes darkness when its law is not understood

1)---Now what the ear likes to hear is music, 
the prohibition of it is what I call obstruction to the ear

2)---What the eye likes to look at is beauty;
 its not being permitted to regard this beauty I call obstruction of sight

3)---What the nose likes to smell is perfume; 
 its not being permitted to smell I call obstruction to scent

4)---What the mouth likes to talk about is right
wrong; and if it is not permitted to speak
 I call it obstruction of the understanding

5)---The comforts the body enjoys to have are rich food 
and fine clothing; 
and if it is not permitted, 
then I call that obstruction of the senses of the body

6)---What the mind likes is to be at peace; 
its not being permitted rest I call obstruction of the mind's nature

7)---All these obstructions are a source of the most painful vexation

8)---Morbidly to cultivate this cause of vexation, 
unable to get rid of it, 
and so have a long but very sad life of a hundred, 
a thousand, 
or ten thousand years,
 is not what I call cherishing life

9)---But to check this source of obstruction 
with calm enjoyment to await death for a day,
a month, 
or a year or ten years,
 is what I understand by enjoying life
