I have a very shallow understanding of philosophy.
I am a just a small student, traveling from class to class.
All that can be offered is this meager opinion:
Happiness, 'Bliss and Ecstasy' are said to be qualities.
What little experience and observation that a fool such as I has been blessed with, reveals that one must attain inner peace before true happiness, true bliss and ecstasy, are experienced.
It has been said that they are byproducts of contentment. One must become content within ones life before any of these said qualities are allowed to spring forth from within ones inner heart.
True happiness is said to be a byproduct of inner peace.
'Ecstasy and bliss' are said to be a byproduct (singular) of true happiness.
True happiness and true peace are said to be only found 'within the Creator'.
If one wishes to witness these qualities it has been said that one must understand what it means to be 'within the Creator'. It has been said that these qualities can be located. The Creator is said to be within man. One must go on an internal voyage within one-self to locate ones Creator. For most human beings, that could possibly be a very scary thought!
One must be always awake, always aware, and constantly poised to spot both, false happiness, false bliss and ecstasy. These can be very deceiving to all humans beings, especially ones living on the periphery. It has been said that they are all part of the glitter, glitz and illusion that this tiny world is prepared to offer one.
No doubt that these unique qualities are all within ones grasp but one must acquire the wisdom that will allow one to hold onto them. They are said to be very illusive!
Perhaps I should study a little ancient philosophy. That might help a fool such as I develop a clearer understanding of the answer to a complex question, such as the one you have posed.
That is this silly old fools opinion.
May we all be granted "Inner Peace".
