A description of the experience
Hazrat Inayat Khan – The Art of Being and Becoming
We confuse pleasure and happiness. Sometimes we say pleasure for happiness, or happiness for pleasure.
In reality very few in the world know what happiness means.
Pleasure is the shadow of happiness, for pleasure depends upon things outside ourselves, happiness comes from within ourselves. Happiness belongs to the heart quality; pleasure to the outer world.
The distance between pleasure and happiness is as vast as that between earth and heaven.
