The unitive way is the way of those who are in the state of the perfect, that is, those who have their minds so drawn away from all temporal things that they enjoy great peace, who are neither agitated by various desires nor moved by any great extent by passion, and who have their minds chiefly fixed on God and their attention turned, either always or very frequently, to Him. They have experienced the Dark Night, which involves the loss of the ego, and the resulting personal strength, power, energy and selfless giving; because there is no ego that desires to give. .
