Here Aswapati experiences the Divine Perfection and its law in all its fullness.
Hierarchy of lucent planes
In this vast outbreak of perfection’s law
Imposing its fixity on the flux of things
He saw a hierarchy of lucent planes
Enfeoffed to this highest kingdom of God-state.
Perfection is not a static state. It is constant dynamic harmonising of each and every force in an ever-growing and perfect balance. Each force and energy and being there was tending towards its absolute through a hierarchy of planes that were moving around the Divine state. In each and every movement it remained consciously centred around the Divine moved with the impulsion of the Divine. These kingdoms never deviated from the law of Truth so to say.
Married to all in happy difference
Attuning to one Truth their own right rule
Each housed the gladness of a bright degree,
Alone in beauty, perfect in self-kind,
An image cast by one deep truth’s absolute,
Married to all in happy difference.
Each being, each quality there was attuned to the one Truth and through this infinity to the truth of all. It contained all in a single unity. Each was an aspect of the One housing His joy, perfect within itself, beautiful in its own unique way as a perfect image of Truth. Yet each was married to all without denying the uniqueness. The differences were joined in being various aspects of the One and thereby enhanced the richness of unity. But never did one lose the consciousness of the One that stood behind supporting all others.
Joy of multitude
Each gave its powers to help its neighbours’ parts,
But suffered no diminution by the gift;
Profiteers of a mystic interchange,
They grew by what they took and what they gave,
All others they felt as their own complements,
One in the might and joy of multitude.
There was no division or conflict. Differences became an opportunity to give freely to each other in a beautiful mystic interchange. This giving only increased the giver since he too profited by receiving what it missed. The contraries were complimentary to each other so to say. All this giving and receiving of the joy and might of multitude did not lose sight of the One and was only enhanced by this spiritual exchange.
Many turned to the One
Even in the poise where Oneness draws apart
To feel the rapture of its separate selves,
The Sole in its solitude yearned towards the All
And the Many turned to look back at the One.
There were realms and regions where the Oneness drew apart a little so that each can feel the rapture of its separate self. Yet the One yearned towards the All and the Many turned back to the One.
All revealing All-creating Bliss
An all-revealing all-creating Bliss,
Seeking for forms to manifest truths divine,
Aligned in their significant mystery
The gleams of the symbols of the Ineffable
Blazoned like hues upon a colourless air
On the white purity of the Witness Soul.
It was a dance of the All-creating, All-revealing Bliss that has built the worlds. It is for this that forms have been built so that divine truth can manifest through them. These significant forms aligned in each in their mystery as symbols of the Ineffable, blazoned like multiple colours and play of lights upon the purity and neutral air of the Witness Soul.
Prism of the Supreme
These hues were the very prism of the Supreme,
His beauty, power, delight creation’s cause.
The Supermind is like a prism where the One White Light becomes the many and reflects His beauty and power and delight which is why creation came into existence, for the play of the One with the Many.
Divine child Heart
A vast Truth-Consciousness took up these signs
To pass them on to some divine child Heart
That looked on them with laughter and delight
And joyed in these transcendent images
Living and real as the truths they house.
These colours and symbols taken up by the vast Truth-consciousness were as if playthings and transcendent images for a divine child-heart. It looked upon them with laughter and delight and played with them as living and real as the truths they embody The divine child-heart is the being of delight whoever creates with wonder and delight.
The Supramental truth-Consciousness has the key to the synthesis of the One and the Many, of God and World. It links creation to the original Bliss that has built the worlds.
