Liber LXV, Cap. IV, v. 28-29
28. Weary, weary! saith the scribe, who shall lead me to the sight of the Rapture of my master?
29. The body is weary and the soul is sore weary and sleep weighs down their eyelids; yet ever abides the sure consciousness of ecstacy, unknown, yet known in that its being is certain. O Lord, be my helper, and bring me to the bliss of the Beloved!
"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."

That part of personality which acts as a scribe (the intellect in the every-day sense?) seeks to partake in the Rapture of this Union too, in a way that it's capable to do so (the sight of the Rapture of my master).
No conditions outer or inner can disturb the continual awareness of the sacred Flame, once the eyes of the mind have awaken to recognize it - it is the very certainty of experience, though the only way in which Ruach can define it is that it's Unknown.
