There's the principal that despite constant reminders, we lose it. It is very hard to maintain constant contact with the fact that the Godly reality is real unto itself and is not composed from ingredients.
You have life that is completely separate from your bodily structure and existence. Life was blown into you by a Godly miracle.
Oneg/delight is not the result of any kind of experience. It is not lust. It is a soul experience. It is not even an experience. It is inherent. This is due to its awareness of the Godly reality and the connection to Godliness. Godliness and worldliness are polar opposites. Everything in the world needs a beginning. Everything Godly is a reality unto itself.
The inner and external elements are both infinite. The difference between external and internal is intellectual, not structural.
There's in an initiation from above, that comes from something that is true unto itself, and not just from 'available abundance'. It comes from essential purpose/meanining.
Delight is the experience of source. The Godly presence. This is like our metaphor of 'the host and the guest...'
The presence of the host is fundamental. The meal and the setting represent this reality.
