' Absorption into Overself '...

First, he has a vague feeling of being attracted towards the Overself.

Then he bestows more attention upon it, thinks of it frequently;

at length attention grows into concentration and this, in turn, culminates in absorption.

In the end, he can say, with al Hallaj:

"I live not in myself, only in Thee.

Last night I loved.

This morning I am Love."
