The word enthusiasm has it's roots in the Greek language. 'en' (one with) and 'theos' (the divine). So enthusiasm literally means to be one with the Divine. When we are enthusiastic we are being one with the Divine energy. We are one with God. When we are enthusiastic, we are connected. We are whole. We cannot force ourselves to be enthusiastic. Enthusiasm is spontaneous. It happens when we are fully immersed in life. It happens when we are passionately one with an idea, a project, a practice or a person. It is an experience of unity filled with joy.
