We have to look at our life as a whole and not only get lost in the moment. We are enjoying the material world but still it is not fulfilling. There is enjoyment, but it is not enough to fulfill the emptiness in our heart. If we want enjoyment, it has to be authorized, and it has to be within the boundaries of pious life. Not that we enjoy in a sinful way because if we enjoy in a sinful way then we get tied up with sinful reactions. So, one who wishes to enjoy the senses, is allowed to, but within the boundaries of authority. Anyone who is breaking the rules of scripture, is binding himself to suffering in future, in the material world. Therefore we must take shelter, shelter of the principles of dharma!
