Description Of The Mystical Trance By Plotinus 2 - -

Plotinus says in another part of the same treatise that Ecstasy is an expansion or accession, a desire of contact, rest, and a striving after ‚conjunction‘. All the phases of the contemplative experience seem to be summed up in these words above.
Ecstasy itself is a practical matter and has its root, not in reason, but in a deep seated passion for the Absolute which is far nearer to the mystic's love of God than to any intellectual curiosity, however sublime.
The few passages in which it is mentioned tell us what his mystical genius drove him to do: and not what his philosophical mind encouraged him to think or say.
Plotinus the ecstatic is sure, that the union with God is a union of hearts and that more than by thought, by love, he may be hidden in God. (Plotinus, Ennead vi.9) .

The mystical trance rides higher than all philosophies. It is the higher consciousness that makes its presence felt through mystical love. Narayana Bhattatiripad in Narayaneeyam describes it as Madhura bhakti. Dear Tony, i love reading all your mystical poems. Thank you.100+++
An excellent first hand account of how the mystic enters into union with the divine without input of any kind from the mind. A simple union of Plotinus' heart with the heart of the absolute in divine love. A wonderful insight into mystical love, which I thank you for sharing dearest Tonyyyyy...
Plotinus the ecstatic is sure, that the union with God is a union of hearts and observation expressed here is not only philosophical but also historical. An amazing poem is shared here.10

We may not come
to the knowing
of our own soul
until we first

With His Stripes We Are Healed.

His visage and his form was
so marred more than any man.

He hath no form nor comeliness;

When Sensual Pleasures Give Way

When love awakens the soul,
when it fills us with a pure joy,
then the love is real.

Pure Nothing.

The content of absolute detachment
is seen as pure nothing.
Pure nothing is the highest point
at wich God can work in us as he pleases.

Apprehension Of The Heart

When essential goodness,
truth and beauty, light
life and love are apprehended
by the heart, whether the heart

Absorbed In This New Blissful Act Of Vision

Ignorant as yet of the final act
of communion, and absorbed
fully in this new blissful
act of vision, the subject forgets
