After moments of long and pregnant silence, Aswapati is drawn deeper into the heart of the Transcendent where he gets a glimpse of a New and marvellous creation.
A downward look
Then suddenly there came a downward look.
Then suddenly Aswapati entered a depth as if looking downwards towards a New Creation. The downward look refers here to the consciousness turning towards creation and not away from it. Aswapati is witnessing the origin of creation as it started, the original blueprint so to say.
A living Oneness
As if a sea exploring its own depths,
A living Oneness widened at its core
And joined him to unnumbered multitudes.
As if a sea exploring its own depths, Aswapati experiences a living Oneness that widened to join him to unnumbered elements of creation to which he was linked through this core. In its original core creation is based on oneness. Hence there is no possibility of suffering or error and evil because these things come with division.
Sole immense embrace
A Bliss, a Light, a Power, a flame-white Love
Caught all into a sole immense embrace;
Existence found its truth on Oneness’ breast
And each became the self and space of all.
The origin of creation is not desire but delight. It is the expression of a secret oneness, bliss, power, light and of course the saviour power of love.
One Self and many worlds
The great world-rhythms were heart-beats of one Soul,
To feel was a flame-discovery of God,
All mind was a single harp of many strings,
All life a song of many meeting lives;
For worlds were many, but the Self was one.
The worlds arose from the One. Its rhythms were set in motion by the One. Its feeling states was the play of God’s flame discovering Itself in countless ways. There all mind was a single harp of many strings and all life was a single song of many lives. Though the worlds were many the Self was one. It is the realm where the One and the Many are together in a harmonious unity. It was a creation based on Truth and Harmony. The mind and life of each being there was linked in a beautiful harmonious rhythm determined by Truth.
This knowledge now was made a cosmos’ seed:
This seed was cased in the safety of the Light,
It needed not a sheath of Ignorance.
It is this supramental realm where one finds the seeds of creation. Though here this seed is cased in light, but as creation descends through various layers and levels of our being it begins to be clothed in the sheath of ignorance thereby obscuring the original plan, there, in the supramental realm the seed of creation is seen in its original plenitude and truth. It is the original blue-print of creation.
A New and marvellous Creation
Then from the trance of that tremendous clasp
And from the throbbings of that single Heart
And from the naked Spirit’s victory
A new and marvellous creation rose.
Then from the trance of that tremendous Oneness pulsations of Love arose with the beatings of a Heart and from that All-victorious Love a new and marvellous creation. This creation was ever new since it moved forward with each pulsation without resistance. It is new also because it is the first stir of creation. And for our earth it is of course entirely new since it is still struggling to emerge out of the sheath of ignorance. It is the supramental creation, where the Spirit rules completely over all that It creates.
Incalculable outflowing infinitudes
Incalculable outflowing infinitudes
Laughing out an unmeasured happiness
Lived their innumerable unity;
Worlds where the being is unbound and wide
Bodied unthinkably the egoless Self;
Rapture of beatific energies
Joined Time to the Timeless, poles of a single joy;
White vasts were seen where all is wrapped in all.
Infinite forces and energies and powers emerged from that state of trance, joyous and laughing, fully conscious of their oneness in the innumerable Unity of the egoless Self which they embodied. Here the play was unbound and free and wide, a rapturous joining of beatific energies that joined Time to the Timeless, poles of a single joy. White vasts of purity and delight were seen where all is wrapped in all. In other words Time or movement was joined to the Timeless, Space was a white vast supporting the play of Infinity.
Aswapati is being revealed the Supramental worlds where oneness is not lost in the many.
