I can think of three reasons why someone would feel better;

a) because they feel better for having done something virtuous and self-validating

B) they feel contented by the words of someone else

c) that it reassures the individual of the greatness of the writer of the words

nb - removing doubt and confusion is not to my mind the same as feeling satisfaction/pleasure.

For me this is saying that the one who really seeks truth will not feel pleasure from reading and hearing prayer. Prayer should further increase the pain of separation, the need to realise truth, not produce santokh.

The lines between them are still blured for me... See what happens..

Prayer should further increase the pain of separation, the need to realise truth

I suppose this could relate to other aspects of life too.
