Perfect love puts the lover in a state of ecstasy and bliss. He becomes impervious to the joys and sorrows to the world. For the people of the world such a one appears to be crazy and off his head, and yet he is not only self-sufficient, but also earns an honorable place in the court of his beloved. With the mystic experience of being in God’s presence, all his questions and doubts are resolved. All religious quarrels and disputes become irrelevant for him. He sees and proclaims the presence of the lord in every one that he perceives, and he revels in the state of perfect bliss.
