Escaping to Ecstasy
Ecstasy, according to Merriam-Webster, means "An overwhelming feeling of great happiness or joyful excitement." So wouldn't we all like to escape to this place. This place full of joy and happiness. So we ask ourselves, "Where is this joyous place of bliss and complete contentment?" Well there isn't just one right answer. To each of us this place will be a different destination. It will require a different travel itinerary. These destinations are completely endless. They may be attainable at the place you stand right now. They may require thousands of miles of travel. The destination may require a minute of time to reach or a lifetime of trial and error. Ecstasy is happiness, if only for just a moment, without any glitches or roadblocks. There isn't any construction in the place of Ecstasy. So where is your Ecstasy? For me it is forever changing. I find that my Ecstasy Escape Destination changes at a crazy rate. Sometimes it is one destination, other times it's another. However, today it is clear. I can paint the picture of my Ecstasy today. Today I feel myself sitting peacefully alone on an island with the sun shining down on me. The only sound is that of the ocean beating against the sand like a steady peaceful heartbeat. The weather is a perfection of blue skies, solid sunshine and temperatures of the utmost comfort. My entire being is more relaxed than ever before with nothing on my mind, but true and compete happiness. My mind is quiet and on a true vacation. There are absolutely no decisions to be made, because the things I need and want just appear beside me before I have to think about wanting or needing them. They are met way in advance. Wow what a beautiful day of true bliss! What a day of Ecstasy!
