The substantive enthusiasm comes from Greek enthousiasm³s, that comes to mean something as well as divine kidnapping etymological or to have God inside.
The idea that there is behind the etymology of this word is that when we let ourselves take by the enthusiasm it is a God the one that enters us and it uses as our person to pronounce, as it happened to them the Greeks to the poets, the prophets and the enamored ones believed. All of them were owned by the divinity and for that reason they deserved respect and admiration, because they arrived at heights that could not even glimpse the people of on foot.
The enthusiasm is the compass that orients the vital way of the fullness and the autorrealizaci³n. To have God inside is a beautiful form to express that or we carried everything within us, who we have all the necessary one to be happy people, that the totality or is in us.

We give by standardized that that he has the boy we are it losing as we grow, as if to mature he implied to lose the joy to learn, to look around and to have interest by new experiences.
And if what is not normal he is that the adults we lose this capacity to excite to us? , and if we are doing something that we have standardized and that is inhibiting this natural capacity from which we come speaking. You imagine a society of excited, glad people and making money doing what he gets passionate to them? Why no?
We will find many keys to understand these questions in how we were educated. They considered a container us to which there was to introduce contents, instead of a totality that was to accompany so that it was developed.
