THE PERMANENCY OF SPIRITUAL BLISS
A few minutes ago you ate chocolates with relish, but that enjoyment has now become a thing of the past and has resulted in nothing. So with all pleasures and pains. One of the greatest enjoyments of the carnally-minded is sexual intercourse. But its pleasure lasts only so long as the intercourse lasts. No sooner does the intercourse come to an end than the pleasure ends.
Compare the transiency of earthly pleasures with the permanency of spiritual bliss, and you will find the difference between the two.
