A description of the experience
Jacob Boehme – Aurora – Chapter 8
10. First there is the Light (as I may naturally compare or resemble it) like the Light of the sun, but not so intolerable as the light of the sun is to our corrupted perished eyes, but very lovely, pleasant and delightful, an aspect or glance of love.
11 But the darkness is hidden in the centre of the Light, that is, when a creature, who is made out of the power of Light, would move and boil higher and faster in that Light than God himself doth and faster in that Light than God himself doth, then in that creature that Light would go out and be extinguished.
