Liber LXV, Cap II, v. 45-47
45. Then the adept was rapt away in bliss, and the beyond of bliss, and exceeded the excess of excess.
46. Also his body shook and staggered with the burden of that bliss and that excess and that ultimate nameless.
47. They cried He is drunk or He is mad or He is in pain or He is about to die; and he heard them not.
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

Rapture. Attempt to describe it with words inevitably turns out as somewhat pompous; everything the Adept identifies with, including her physical body, is deeply shaken by this intense experience of bliss. The Angel is recognized in every possibly-perceivable form, and as none of them; the foundation of Adept's being becomes rooted in her relationship with that ultimate nameless.

On the outside, her behavior seems erratic, extreme, bursting with hyper-intensity, completely out-of-the-norm; while the Adept abides in Silence of continual bliss.
