The Self and Symbol

Thou most Divine! above all women Above all men in consciousness.

Thou in thy nearness to me Hast shown me paths of love. Yea; walks that lead from hell To the great light; where life and love Do ever reign.

Thou hast taught to me a patience To behold whatever state; However beautiful and joyful; however ugly and sorrowful.

To know that these are--all!--but The glimmerings of the greater life-- Expressions of the infinite.

According to the finality of that moment Now to come; in the eternal now, which thou Sweet Presence, hast awakened me to-- I see the light--the way.

An everlasting illumination That takes me to the gate; the open door To the house of God.
