Pronounced in French èk-sta-z' is a state of being carried away by overwhelming emotion meaning also a subjective experience of total involvement of the subject, with an object of his or her awareness, or translated in English "ecstasy", a world that originates from the Ancient Greek (ἔκστασις ékstasis) and which classical literature refers to removal of the mind or body "from its normal place of function". This loss of self-control that can be also a temporary loss of consciousness can be brief in terms of time or it can go on for hours, depending the way you reach it, often associated with sexual intercourse, religious mysticism, not to mention certain drugs, but excluding the last two, beside the physical-get-into mental pleasure, ecstasy can be also inductive by creative activities, as may be art and music. For me ecstasy is simply the moment of heartfelt happiness, happiness as a state of true spontaneity.
