「わくわく」する感覚を嫌いな人は少ないと思う。
アメリカのダリル・アンカを通し、チャネリング(精神交流)によりメッセージを伝えていると言われている、エササニという星の宇宙人であるバシャールは、ワクワクする感覚が最も重要で、ワクワクすることをやれば全てうまくいくといった意味のことを教えていることを、バシャールの本でよく見た。

ところで、バシャールのメッセージの和訳では、「わくわく」という意味をどんな意味で使っているのだろうと思うことがある。
「わくわく」の語源は、「沸く沸く」か「湧く湧く」だろう。
「沸く」は沸騰するという意味で、興奮する様子と思う。
「湧く」は生じるという意味で、「わくわく」で生じるものは、おそらく「想い」だろう。
英語で「わくわく」を表現すると、“be excited”(興奮する)と共に、“be nervous”、つまり、ナーバスになると言い、これは神経質とか落ち着きがないといった意味だ。

こうしてみると、「わくわく」というのは、落ち着きのない、心が揺れ動いている状態で、決して好ましいとは思えない。

「わくわく」と共に、楽しい雰囲気を表す言葉に「うきうき」がある。
こちらは、「浮き浮き」で、浮くのは心である。
ただし、いわゆる、緊張してあがるということではなく、心が軽い状態と思う。
昔から、非常に良い気分を、「天にも昇る気持ち」と言ったり、素晴らしい愛や夢を、飛ぶとか、舞い上がるといった表現をすることが多い。
また、「高い」という言葉自体、「高貴」や「高尚」といった良い意味で使われ、良いもの、素晴らしいものを「高い」「高度」と言い、非常に優れた人物を「雲の上の人」と言う。
それに、天使は飛ぶものだ。
逆に、地獄は地の底にあると言われる。

考えてみると、「うきうき」という言葉の方が「わくわく」よりはるかに優れているのであるが、おそらく、「浮き浮き」の意味で「わくわく」を使う人もいるのではないかと思う。
英国の作家、チェスタートンは、

Angels can fly because they take themselves lightly.
天使は、自分が軽いと思っているから飛べるのだ

と言うが、軽いのは体重ではなく、心と捉えるべきだろう。
面白いことに、英語で「うきうき」は、“with a light heart”で、心の軽さを表すのだ。

人間にとって、最大の幸福とは、心が軽いことではないだろうか?
いかなる富や地位があろうと、心が重ければ不幸だし、何もなくても、心が軽ければ幸福だ。
そして、心が軽ければ、それが力になる。心が軽い人間は無敵だし不可能はない。これこそが、人間の本当の神秘である。

I want so much nacho cheese that I don’t even know what’s underneath. 

i went to high school with a girl who would eat 2 grilled cheese sandwiches with a dipping cup of nacho cheese with a plate of tater tots with nacho cheese poured over them for lunch EVERY DAY
she was in my japanese class(which she hated but she said she didn’t want to take spanish because she didn’t ‘need to talk to mexicans’, or french because it was ‘ugly’) it was like…extremely difficult to look at on a regular basis
i think later she got sent to the school’s disciplinary committee for saying she was hoping to go to a college with as little diversity as possible 
her computer background was a huge picture of her face
everything about this person is coming back to me all at once GAH

Somebody in the crowd fired a pistol and the people again started to scream hysterically, ‘Kill the niggers! Kill the niggers! Pour gasoline on the niggers!’ The mob started to throw stones on top of my car. So I opened the door of the car and I put one foot on the ground and I stood up in the door holding an Italian carbine. All this time three policemen had been standing about 50 feet away from us while we kept waiting in the car for them to come and rescue us. Then when they saw that we were armed and the mob couldn’t take us, two of the policemen started running. One ran straight to me, grabbed me on the shoulder and said, ‘Surrender your weapon! Surrender your weapon!’ I struck him in the face and knocked him back away from the car and put my carbine in his face and told him that we didn’t intend to be lynched. The other policeman who had run around the side of the car started to draw his revolver out of the holster. He was hoping to shoot me in the back. They didn’t know that we had more than one gun. One of the students (who was 17 years old) put a .45 in the policeman’s face an told him that if he pulled out his pistol he would kill him.

The policeman started putting his gun back into the holster and backing away from the car and he fell into the ditch. There was a very old man, an old white man, out in the crowd, and he started screaming and crying like a baby, and he kept crying and he said, ‘God damn, God damn what is this God damn country coming to that the niggers have got guns, the niggers are armed and the police can’t even arrest them?!’ He kept crying and somebody led him away through the crowd.

Robert F. Williams

Telling the reason why he called his book “Negros with guns.” This book had an important influence on the Black Panther Party. The quote is a selection from the book.

Several years later, Williams explains why he felt that the old white man was crying:

"It took me a long time to understand his feeling. Now I realize why he was crying. Because the gun had been the thing that had always kept them on top, and the police power. And he could see that slipping away, and his way of life was going. And this is why he was crying. And this is why I named my book "Negro’s with Guns."
