The Story Of God

Morgan Freeman’s narration of a message for humanity in ‘The Story of God’ is simply astounding.

Ecstacy

‘The genuinely committed person, who encounters resistances to ecstasy, will not turn to those who will give him reasons or excuses to encourage his lack of commitment. Rather he will seek out someone who will faithfully and enthusiastically support him in challenging those resistances, passing through them and reaching the expanded freedom on the other side. Only to the extent that you willingly expose yourself over and over again to your fears, can you cultivate the experience of being ecstatic in your life. Thus the aim of life itself is not to become comfortable. On the contrary, for life to be ecstatic, you must welcome the uncomfortableness that presents itself. To resist uncomfortableness will only perpetuate it.

The goal of mankind is to the life be comfortable and ecstatic without first being willing to go through any uncomfortableness. Every ecstatic moment is found only beyond a veil of uncomfortableness. Your willingness to push through your resistance at the moment they arise and to be uncomfortable at any moment, rather than seeking ways to avoid your uncomfortableness, determines the degree to which you will become comfortable, do the impossible, create miracles, and be ecstatic about life.’

Author of the books The Integrity Tone Scale and Love Me? Love Yourself
