Yes. We all have had the experience of falling in love. The intensity, the constant thinking about the beloved and wanting to please him or her. On the mystical path, this love can and does grow into encompassing more than one person--finding oneself madly in love with 2, 3, or more people--men and women both. It can be very scary. But it is the beginning stages of Unity, of loving everyone intensely. I'm sure it's very hard to bear until one can integrate it, become stabilized in it.

I'm not familiar enough with the Celts, but I'm sure this Love has been experienced by many people throughout history.

Yes, you are 100% right about Mary. Love can produce levitation. Love and longing for God. The nuns used to have to pull Teresa of Avila off the ceiling of her room where she meditated.
But we do not ascend to God in our physical body, in case that's what you meant. Occasionallly there is levitation, but this "ability" is not sought after as a goal by lovers. The lover's goal is the Beloved. Nothing else matters.
The path of Love is far superior to the path of knowledge, which often leads to a power trip. Love takes us out of our self, and into the Ocean of Love, of God.
