Joy is the expression of divinity. My guru says that mere movement on the physical plane is meant to create joy. Your blood flowing, your breath moving in and out....they are ecstatic experiences.

Joy is of merging with God. The whole experiences joy.

Pleasure is about separating from God. The individual experiences pleasure.

about joy

how do u think the JOY manifests??
1st u learn(scripture) about supreme reality...this learning again may br the gift of god to u
2ndly u touch ur INNER self while walking on this pathfor long
3rd after touching this inner reality about urself u become NUDE to the world...u feel too vulnerable(u may think so)..this is reached ur own devotin to almighty
3rdly the MOST loving supreme manifets in you..in othr words he fills the empty in you with his loving presence..THIS is the real joy and the whole process may be termed as SAT-CHIT-ANANDA..
