The choice is between Limited Joy and unlimited Joy. Limited joy, that is experienced through the five senses is Instant and guarantees pleasure at least during the time of indulgence. Whereas Joy that is beyond the five senses is not instantaneous and is absolutely intangible. One needs faith to endure the time period between the letting go of cravings for limited joy of the senses and the dawning of the unlimited joy that comes from the self.

To the degree we let go to that degree we experience the uncaused joy of the self. So I think its all about having faith and just keep waiting and waiting and waiting....

    Perfect Rashmin...the mind needs to be calmed though in those moments of feverishness to experience the limited joy. And thats where Guruji's wonderful practices and knowledge helps. And for me reading Yoga Vasishta helps immensely.
