I have been at some pains to avoid the use of this special language of the mystics; but now perhaps we may remind ourselves that, by the declaration of all who have achieved it, the mature spiritual life is such a condition of completed harmony -- such a theopathetic state.
The Life of the Spirit and the Life of To-day Evelyn Underhill 1908
For them, when they have achieved at last the true theopathetic state, all aspects of the universe possess equal authority as sacramental declarations of the Presence of God; and their fearless employment of homely and physical symbols -- often startling and even revolting to the unaccustomed taste -- is in direct proportion to the exaltation of their spiritual life.
