Spirituality: Metchthild of Magdeburg on the mutuality of God

God has so enfolded the soul into him/herself and so poured out the divine nature completely into it that the soul is rendered speechless. It says nothing except that God is in the closest communion with it and God is more than a Father.

God lays the soul in his glowing heart so that He, the great God, and she, the humble maid, embrace and are united as thoroughly as water is with wine.

As love grows and expands in the soul, it rises eagerly to God and overflows toward the Glory which bends towards it. Then Love melts through the soul into the senses, so that the body too might share in it, for Love is drawn into all things.
