The lines that follow give man supreme hope that whatever the appearances, the transformation is going to be. It is being prepared behind the veil and often the darkest hours are the one’s followed by the New Dawn that is bound to arrive.
The masked Transcendent
Thus will the masked Transcendent mount his throne.
The Divine is the invisible King of His creation and one day He will throw away the dark mask He has worn. He will one day reclaim His world for Truth and Beauty and Light and Bliss. Darkness is only a passage meant to hasten the coming of New Creation.
The covert tread
When darkness deepens strangling the earth’s breast
And man’s corporeal mind is the only lamp,
As a thief’s in the night shall be the covert tread
Of one who steps unseen into his house.
Veiled by the Night He shall come and grow in man’s heart, unnoticed and unrecognized by the ignorant mind of man. Man’s house of clay will hold His Splendour one day. The darkest hours shall prepare the most luminous dawns.
Earth grow unexpectedly divine
A Voice ill-heard shall speak, the soul obey,
A Power into mind’s inner chamber steal,
A charm and sweetness open life’s closed doors
And beauty conquer the resisting world,
The Truth-Light capture Nature by surprise,
A stealth of God compel the heart to bliss
And earth grow unexpectedly divine.
The soul of man shall hear what the outer being of man refuses to acknowledge. His mind shall be illumined by the growing inner Light. The charm and sweetness of the Lord will one day conquer all resistances and open the now closed doors of our life to the All-Beautiful. Man’s ignorant nature surprised and uplifted by the Truth-light and his heart compelled by God’s bliss, Man will outgrow his human state and our earth shall be transformed into a figure of divinity.
In Matter shall be lit the spirit’s glow
In Matter shall be lit the spirit’s glow,
In body and body kindled the sacred birth;
Night shall awake to the anthem of the stars,
The days become a happy pilgrim march,
Our will a force of the Eternal’s power,
And thought the rays of a spiritual sun.
What is foreseen and prophesied here is the transformation of earthly life by the Light and Glory of the Spirit. Matter itself will be illumined and our very bodies will be transformed into a perfect image of the divinity that dwells within it. Then Darkness will yield its hidden core of divinity and make of our consciousness now split into bright and dark parts a single unity. Our will united with the Divine Will recover the Divine Force inherent within it and our thoughts lifted to luminous heights discover the ways of Knowledge that come from consciously living in an intuitive Light.
God shall grow up
A few shall see what none yet understands;
God shall grow up while the wise men talk and sleep;
For man shall not know the coming till its hour
And belief shall be not till the work is done.
This is the superhumanity that is destined to emerge upon earth. But the coming of the Superman will pass unnoticed except by a few. Yet he shall be the link for the divinization of earthly life. But it is quite possible, even likely that the average man lost in the din and cry of surface life will not know it until the Divine Work that is going on upon Earth since its formation is finally accomplished.
These prophetic lines give us Hope for a divine future despite all the darkness and resistances that humanity experiences today in its ascension towards Truth and Light. They are not just an assurance but a promise of the Lord that the Earth shall be saved and its matter divinized by the influx of a greater and higher Consciousness into it. The transformation is going to be even if all our human logic and analysis of surface events cannot foresee it, even as all our resistances to the Truth-Light cannot forestall it. We can take these wonderful lines not only as a pronouncement of the Future but also the Promise of the Lord to Earth and men.
