default Of Pleasure and Happiness

Post by Zen on Fri Jul 05, 2013 6:28 pm

So lets talk, about what it means to be happy.
Are happiness and pleasure the same thing? Is experiencing pleasure or partaking in it different from being happy?
Why or why not? Are either of them easily confused with something else? Like satisfaction?
How do you guys perceive this?

Extra Happy Its my pleasure to say I am happy today....and I am partaking in the pleasure of sharing this with you one with your asking about pleasure and happiness..Are you satisfied with my answer, or do I have to jump up and down and do a happy dance to show you more of what I mean...well actually that could be pleasurable as well...so here goes..

Its my feeling to feel what I feel
its my pleasure to share what I feel
its satisfying to know I feel and feel pleasure
and create things that are very much at my leisure
its no denying that its so satisying
its not lie that I am dining
in the feast of my own joy
and creating the mood
the feeling the reason, the sharing with this brood..

Pleasure are things that bring a smile to your face, that you enjoy. They contribute to the joy within that you feel. That joy within is the happiness and it bubbles always once you tap into it. The more you do, the more life seems pleasurable, even if it was the exact same life as before you did.

Happiness is an inner state and pleasure is one of it's many expressions.

you guys give me the warm fuzzies!!

lol I'd say pleasure is the actual sensation you feel from joy and the like and happiness is a state of mind or inner space.
