A description of the experience
The soul having conquered the multiple heavens and possessed herself of the mysterious power, is plunged into the unity of the motionless heaven, called … the empyrean, not because it is burning but because it is enlightening, all who are in the heaven being ablaze with the cherubic light of divine love.
