The Ecstatic Liberation of the Spirit

Ecstatic Liberation of the SpiritThe state of ecstasy which accompanies the liberation of the Spirit from the confines of the Persona. It is important to note that the Spirit is not alienated from the flesh, or at war with the flesh, as many suppose. Rather, the flesh allows one to feel the Ecstasy of the Spirit. The flesh is the Justified Throne of the Spirit in the manifest realm. It is the tight grip and control of the Persona over consciousness which is one of the factors which keeps the Spirit from manifesting more fully. See Ecstasy.
