„oh Wonder Of Wonders' Cries Eckhart
The one who experiences rapture or ecstasy
admits that he is in an irresistible trance.
These are often very short,
He enjoys a supreme knowldeg of
or participation in divine Reality.
Under various metaphors, he tries to tell
that he attained Pure Being,
his source, his origin, his Beloved.
„Oh wonder of wonders' cries Eckhart,
„when i think of the union the soul
has with God! He makes the enraptured soul
to flee out of herself, for she is no more satisfied
with anything that can be named. The spring of Divine Love flows out of the soul and draws her out of herself
into the unnamed Being, into her first source, which is God alone' (Meister Eckhart, On the steps of the Soul, (Pfeiffer, p.153) .
