A description of the experience
Meister Eckhart from Inge’s Mysticism in Religion
The union of the soul with God is far more inward than that of the soul and body… Now I might ask, how stands it with the soul that is lost in God? Does the soul find herself or not? To this I will answer as it appears to me, that the soul finds herself in the point where every rational being understands itself with itself. Although it sinks in the eternity of the divine essence, yet it can never reach the ‘Ground’. Therefore God has left a little point wherein the soul turns back upon itself and finds itself, and knows itself to be a creature.
