Bliss, ecstasy and divine love - What is the difference between bliss and ecstasy?

The dictionary gives the following definitions:
Bliss - "complete happiness, heaven, paradise."
Ecstasy - "overwhelming rapturous delight."

Bliss is associated with the "pure bliss consciousness" we experience in meditation and gradually more and more in our daily life as we continue to meditate. Ecstasy, on the other hand, is an undoing. Meaning, we get lost in a reverie of pleasure. "Overwhelming rapturous delight" is a good a description for it. Where does ecstasy come from? While bliss emanates from our consciousness, ecstasy arises in our body. Ecstasy is the result of prana ravishing us in delicious ways.
