“When God penetrates the soul with his nature, the soul experiences two effects: the first is an irresistible love, an attraction which subjugates her by means unknown to her … The second effect is, that the soul feels herself in some manner as participating in that divine nature. She sees by means of an irrefutable illumination that she comes from that God who manifests himself to her and that she returns to him. Moreover, although outside herself, in God she finds herself in her element and in her center; both God and the soul dissolving into one, she forgets her proper life and feels she is partaking of the Life of God.”
