Meaning of Ecstasy

What is Ecstasy:

The term ecstasy comes from the Greek έκ-στασις (ek-stasis) and refers to the state of the soul of a person characterized by an intense feeling of joy, pleasure, admiration, etc. towards something or someone. The person cannot take their attention away from it.

Ecstasy is a state of maximum fullness that implies a disconnection with the reality that is seen to focus on the inside.

In some religions, reaching a state of ecstasy means having a mystical encounter that refers to the state of union of the soul with some divinity or with nature, characterized by the temporary suspension of bodily functions, of all the senses and of the mind.
