Material and Spiritual Pleasures

Q: I teach Kabbalah in a small group I organized by myself. My students, beginners in Kabbalah, asked me about the difference between physical and spiritual pleasures. Please help me formulate a clear answer, since I myself feel a bit confused.

A: Spiritual pleasure is:

The result of receiving the Divine Pleasure consists not just of the pleasure itself, but of a feeling of unity with the Creator, sensing Him, which is an additional pleasure.

The result of feeling the Creator is grasping Him, becoming all knowing, encompassing the entire universe, which is an additional pleasure.
