Pleasure is a side effect

Pleasure seeking is frustrating for this reason. We can learn form having unexpected discoveries of happiness in life but as soon as we attempt to do something for the pleasure only, we are disappointed. That is why the practice of giving is recommended. The pleasure of giving is unexpected but just connecting with others is a joy one doesn’t think of in the process.
I’m afraid I’m making word salad. Do I make sense to anyone?

Yeah, giving to others gives you a nice rise.

That reminds me of Kabbalah. If you aren’t familiar with it, you might try some of the books by Michael Laitman. I also thought the one by Michael Kellogg was good.
