“If there is a more complete way of loving than with body and soul, we have not yet heard of it. It is more than just interesting that mystics have often employed sexual metaphors to describe their union with God. Eros is the natural inducement to love life, to say yes to time and to space, to the very unknown nature of reality (or illusion, as it may be), to the Godhead, to oneself.”
