SN.36.14. Agārasutta ("A Guest House")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“Mendicants, suppose there was a guest house. Lodgers come from the east, west, north, and south. Aristocrats, brahmins, merchants, and workers all stay there.

In the same way, various feelings arise in this body: pleasant, painful, and neutral feelings. Also material pleasant, painful, and neutral feelings arise. Also spiritual pleasant, painful, and neutral feelings arise.”
